How many am I allowed to upload? I have nearly thirty years of work that I could share.

Can't seem to message you on mobile, but thanks for the offer of pot lifts but I don't think I'd like them either

Aloha Nadine,  My wife and I would love for you to stop by, we don't really have a gallery or even a showroom.  We work in our lanai and do a few craft shows now and then.  We always enjoy meeting clay folks, to talk story and share idea's.  When are you planning to visit?  Are you here to work with clay?  Let us know!

Be safe and we sent you much Aloha

Charlie and Debby

Love your unfired pieces. Studio looks great! Looks like you have a small kiln like I do. Also your fiber art looks beautiful.

Hi, I am new To this site so have patience with me.  I will give you a bit of my background.  I am a self taught potter, started in 1969. Attended the first Craft Show at Bennington, VT. I think it was 1972. Small but wonderful people. I have had several studio's in my life. Also A one point was working in NYC at Downtown Potters Co-op. Did the National Gift shows in NY and had my work in the NYTime Magazine at one point.  

I move out to Washington in 2006 and built a Monolithic Dome house and just finished my new studio last year. It is small because I have downsize. As you can guess I am 73, but don't feel.  Still full of new ideas and work to be done. But really do not want to do production pottery. Habit often swings me into it.

What is you background?  I started out as a Fine Art Major and have taken side trips in my life into the painting world. In 1982 had a two person show in NYC.  Never really took off and the Art World at that time was fierce.

I am not a lover of competition.

Welcome, Nadine!

You've jumped into our little pond with both feet! I must say that it makes my day to find members like you, who find value on our network, and then add more value by being active, supporting members. Thank you.

I have asked this before elsewhere, but I am asking it again: The Randy that made lots of glazes (but is apparently COLOR BLIND because lots are different colors than their name on my pots), WHO IS HE?


Once Steven Hill was here teaching a workshop and he kept referring to Hanna's ash glazes and THE HANNA was in the room and none of us said THIS IS THE HANNA! I thought it was for her to speak up!  So, I know Hanna of glaze fame but who the heck is this poor color blind Randy?!~ Some say Johnson, but claim to not know for certain!
