Some time ago (4 months?) Nikom let it slip in one of his posts that
he had written a book. I'm not following all that close but think I know
that Nikom is from Alaska, went to ivory school with Jeff Lawrance,
and is living in a village in Cambodia trying to do good things.
Well, that's about all I needed to know to, to want to read the book
written by a fellow ClayArter.

Hope this isn't considered a commercial.

Sturgeon Bay, WI - Where the snow that we were expecting at 1st post
below has come and GONE, we are experiencing 50dF days (!)
and I blame it all on those wood fired kilns (I'm kidding).
