snow day

It was great to have a snow day. These are the first pots I've thrown since the holidays.  Ideas for mugs, goblets, and saucers are finally beginning.  I had a problem with the rims of the stems warping on past goblets I've made.  I tried throwing them with a solid bottom that van Gilder suggests. Can't wait to assemble them.

Paul Soldner

Being a pottery student in the late sixties and early seventies, Paul Soldner was a great influence on my style of pottery as well as my approach to life and pottery. His legacy and work will continue to influence many.
