I have always claimed there is easy money and hard money. I have yet to find something in this clay bizz that has been easy money. Our local arts centre is having a gourmet soup event as a fund raiser. They asked me to make, trim, bisque and wax 100 soup bowls. They provide the clay and I get $4.50 a bowl. I had just written you about Issac Button and thought "Oh hell an afternoons work!" That was three weeks ago and I'm still making them. Some cracked, some were too small, some too big, some I didn't like so I'm hoping to have them ready for next week. A month! I'm sorry Mr. Button that I am such a let down to you.
