susan filley and david bradley workshop this weekend! in phoenix

Let me recommend this workshop to anyone who is intersted in fluid thrown and
altered porcelain forms. Susan currrently has about forty of her pieces on
display at Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina. They are
elegantly crafted and glazed, truly a delight. My students keep asking my how
those forms could be thrown. But you'll need to see them for your self. She
has an example of one of her dancing teapots in the new Ceramic Design Book
published recently by Lark Books (page 28).

Also, Mishy puts on a great workshop, well worth the money. Wish i could be
