The view from the ceramics studio was hard to take. On any given morning you'd see deer, river otters, seals, eagles, raccoons, heron and there was even a bear sighting. There are even cougars in the area but the only ones to be seen were the women in my class swarming around a young guy named Diago from Costa Rica. All the ladies made him comfortable- go-go Diago! Here is some of my first days throwing. the plan was to start bigger and get smaller but once the class got a feel for big they wanted to keep it up. Truth in the saying -size matters. Here is my room mate Joe Brescha doing naked raku with his class and a kiln load of test tiles from John Britt's class. It was a pleasure to see these guys in action.
