I just did a search for _Finding One's Way in Clay_ at this url and found
TWO copies (I ordered one) of it (used).

Thought someone else might be interested.


Also, re:critters in studio, I sent this twice and it never reached the
list as far as I can see, so will append it here (like mel did with the dog
post ;-)

I followed the cats/dogs in the studio thread with interest as my studio is
an open-air garage (yes I can work 'outside' year round here in the
desert), and we have lots of critters too. My two dogs have been in the
studio all along and as the kitties got braver about facing the dogs, they
have migrated there as well. The problem I have had with the cats is, that
I used to cover my pots with plastic and then a sheet or towel (to keep the
wind from blowing the plastic off too soon), and the kitties think that is
a really comfy place to sleep...*voila*! smooshed pots :-( Well, I have
somewhat solved that without shooting the kitty kitties. I cover the pots
with boxes instead of towels/sheets (good thing I'm not a production potter
at this point huh).

Anyway, the real reason I wrote on this thread is that we also have lots of
poultry running around the property and lately they have been wandering
around to the studio side of the property. One chicken decided a junk box
I have in there is a great nest and lays her eggs there, in the box. Also,
we have a gimpy turkey (she had a fight with a dog or something and won),
and she has decided that since it's getting kinda chilly here, that she is
more comfy in the studio than outside, so in the mornings we find her
laying right near the two dogs who sleep in my studio! It is a pretty darn
funny sight to see two dogs and a turkey bunking together let me tell you!

I gotta say though, it is a bit disconcerting to have to clean up the
turkey doo-doo, you know the old saying... 'Poultry make lousy
house-pet'....(ok, I paraphrased)....

Mishy, who loves her critters and puts up with a lotta stuff... ;-)

Dear Michelle,

I tried that address and couldn't access it. Could you check to see if
anything is missing?

Dear All, Once upon a time I had to rebuild an electric kiln.Removing the
top cover I replaced all of the,(then) Vermiculite,leaving off the cover
until the next day. A local cat found this a lovely cat box. I replaced
the cover, loaded and started the kiln. Left the studio for several hours
and,upon returning found I could not enter. Moral: Be very careful in
kindness to cats. Kinoko.
