Gay - This post is as blank as your test tile. To describe the program that Robin has outlined for me in my blog would take hours. In England there were many that had the good fortune of the tutoring of Bernard Leach. Robin was sent on a mission from England to Canada to influence my life and I guess he figures cause helped get me into this dirty mess he better keep me in it. There is comfort in numbers. He is doing this mentoring as an act of friendship and has noooooo interest in private tutoring. He does make a living at this mud slinging after all. My serious suggestion would be that you take the Masters Glaze Class at Metchosin next summer. Robin is not teaching it but you can bet your Nelly that he will have hand picked someone very capable to carry the flag. Always having my ear to the ground I heard names like John Britt and Pete Pinnell. I'll make it public that my vote is for John. I love Pete but he has a full time gig. John lives by the sword and the money always comes in handy for those working stiffs in the trenches of the clay pit.
Buy The Ceramic Spectrum for some serious reading/study and get ready to spend two weeks next summer in a glaze lab.
Long live the Alamo. Fond memories of San Antone!
