What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Though I have worked with ceramics since early 70s it has always been the smaller part of my life which I fit in as I was able. I have mixed up glazes for studios for quite a few years. Making glazes for a studio setting is quite different than what one does for ones self. Glazes which work well for a wide range of both personal taste and ability is probably one of the more challenging aspects of the work I have done. Now that I am back to only working for myself and having the time to devote to the craft, I am looking forward to potting to my hearts content.
