Noticed you were located in Alabama.  I have not been a member of Cone 6 Mid-Fire Potters for very long, nor have I been doing Cone 6 electric for long either.  My background is cone 9 reduction, but even that was a ways back in years.  I've been in Alabama for two years, have a small kiln and handbuild at present until I can afford a wheel.  I see you are in Theodore.  I'm located in West Mobile.  I would like to see some of your work, but didn't see any posted here.  do you have a separate web page?  Just thought I'd say hello.   -Carl

Hi CM, I am glad to see you found this group. I believe you helped my wife and me with purchasing a mug and a vase right after Steven's workshop in late August. I think you had just started as Resident Artist and we were having a hard time trusting that the vase I bought was $50; remember? It looks like ther have been some changes at Center Street Clay since I was there. I hope everything is still working out for you.

Tips for Members

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. In the upper right corner of the lists for both types of posting, you will find an "+Add " button. Clicking it will open an editor where you create your posting. 4/16/2014
