  4. A message from Alice (oldlady) regarding Terry (Pugaboo)
    "Terry Buffington, known to us as the vibrant Pugaboo, lost her husband on October 4 to a serious illness.  He had been ill and hospitalized for several weeks.  I know Terry would be glad to hear from her forum "family".  I am sure we all feel part of her loss and would like to express those feelings to her."

      New Holland sell tractors that can plough 36 inch deep furrows for Italian farmers - fact. Many think they plough that deep to grow straight spaghetti !

  10. I had thought of applying to show five cups in the Cup: The Intimate Object show at the Charlie Cummings gallery in the fall. I was a bit intimidated by the resume requirement. Do they only accept artists with formal training and a degree? I was curious if anybody knows.

      Only way to find out is send in two applications. One from the real you, one from the person you would have beem. If the pretend you gets in, you can always decline. Can't imagine they'd check up........

  13. Threw two whole pots today, then destroyed one.

      Chilly

      Destroyed it deliberately, pushing the clay, as I didn't like what I'd made, so just kept on until it became a tornado.

  15. I have a dipping glaze for my classroom, but want to have a small bottle, do the students can brush it on as well. What should I add to the small bottle? Epsom Salts to keep it suspended? Gum solution so it dries slower?

  16. Drop wedged 120-150kg of clay today. Going to be feeling it tomorrow.

  17. I allowed someone into my studio on Christmas day...I don't do that. But I'm thinking that its going to be OK if I 'open up' a little more. Still processing that thought.
