I would like to share a few things after attending a workshop with Rick
Berman this weekend. I would highly recommend his workshops to anyone
who has a chance to attend. He is a very exceptional potter, teacher,
and personality. This workshop was at U.of North Texas (where I am a
Ceramics grad student). We built and fired four soft brick "salku" kilns
in two days.(see his article in the newest Claytimes). The finished pots
definitely not the average cone 10 ware. Leave all "pottery baggage" at
home! Rick passion for this process and clay in general was very
contagious. If you have a chance to see his work or him at a workshop,
do it. Thanks Rick!
