David,

I am also working on something via a ceramic orginization here in the USA that I am on the Board of Directors of.

What an awful mess. Heartbreaking.

best,

...............john

PS: I am assuming that Nara only got a bit of "a shake" out of this?

For those of you makers on TC, if you wish to donate work for auction to help Japan, Ayuni Horie is coordinating a nationwide event to help raise funds. She can be reached at ayumihorie@gmail.com or through her web site http://www.ayumihorie.com.

I will be making multiple donations is this effort to, in some small way, ease the suffering of the people in Japan during these very trying times.

I kindly ask you to please do what you can to help.
Best wishes from Boston,
Rob

Here are some pictures of some work I am getting ready for my Etsy page. They are from the last firing of my large kiln. I am in the process of cleaning out my kiln for the next firing and so am finally unloading the last of the work and going through it. These pieces are made from a clay that looks like basalt rock. Light but very rough looking.

Peace Keeper Bowl. It took me an hour to cut this bowl away from everything it was fused to.

The very first piece of wood I put in I dropped wrong and smashed this shelf knocking about 10 pieces everywhere.

Bummer, that had to "hurt." Nice explosion on the last photo, I forget what that is called? But nice spider legs.
