It is very hard not to let that forum put me in the poor house! I have had to do some sly budgetting so that I have a bit of cash put aside for when kilns get opened! Also, I have put in a special order with Bill (T-session) - it is a bit of an experiment all around, so you will all just have to wait a few months to see if/how it turns out!
Beautiful stuff these guys are doing and I LOVE to watch all the experiments with shapes, colors, and throwing and firing techniques. One of the things I am most fascinated by is how so much of the glazing and firing process is in the hands of the 'kiln gods'! How unplanned and random beauty occurs behind those closed kiln doors!! The whole process is beautiful - In fact, I am thinking I will take a pottery class in the Fall or Winter
