  1. In response to Pres's question, my classes in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) expose me to all kinds of physical and mental disabilities. In 27 years I've gained much insight into working with clay and physical impairments. My students have issues with vision, strength, mobility, memory, and concentration. One of my greatest joys is finding a way to "get the job done." We've created what Pres called "work arounds" to finish their projects. My personal limitations so far is that I no longer can lift a 50 pound box of clay and have to move only 25 pounds at a time. DME
  2. I'd like to inform the group that potter/author Richard Zakin has passed away.

      Thank you for informing us,  he was my inspiration to work in Cone 6 clay and glazes.   After I read his first book in the early 70's I felt that Cone 6 oxidation was the future of pottery.     Denice

  4. someone asked me to make a garlic shredder which was unfamiliar to me. I looked online and bought one to study. Does anyone make them and if so, what do you use to make the "bumps" that do the shredding? Thanks

      Thanks Min, many good ideas on the previous thread. Wish I had asked sooner wouldn't have wasted so much time trying things.
