R&T's Creative Oasis 133 E. Beaver Avenue in State College PA has =
updated their workshop schedule. For more information please visit our =
website at = or =
call Dave at 814-237-1982.

We had a wee bit of a problem when we had Tony and Sheila Clenell =
scheduled for Easter weekend, now their workshop has been moved forward =
1 week. Hopefully all of those people who registered in advance will =
still be able to come.
We have also received new information from Chris Staley, we should have =
photos of his latest work posted soon. As his former student, I have to =
say that the man is grace in motion on the potters wheel., every =
movement is precise and he usually puts the clay within a millimeter of =
where he wants it -he has a fine eye for detail and I swear he can see =
the best possible evolution of a pot from it's most crude beginnings. =
This is a one day workshop you don't want to miss.

A little teaser for the future....

I am still working on finding two more amazing potters to round out our =
schedule. I'll keep you posted. I have made initial contact with Mr. =
Jack Troy and Ian Stainton. Most of you have heard of Jack, and some of =
you may have heard of Ian as his work has been included in several books =
on pottery. Ian is a potter of extraordinary skills. He throws faster =
and more accurately that anyone I have seen to date and he does it with =
porcelain. Anyone who is interested in seeing efficiency and beauty =
combined in the best way possible should think about his workshop.

That's all for now...
