you are too kind!
you have me blushing.
but the thought of those gorgeous,
fluorescent orange tools
with big block letter magic marker writing
just makes a tool girl
quiver and swoon.
thinking I might go day glo green
I love your perspective on evolution
makes most of us potters proud
to contribute to future discoveries.
Lost tools in the recycle bin:
as an undergrad the deal was:
whoever volunteered to recycle the class clay /slip/scrap
barrel(s) was entitled to a certain amount of the clay
to use as their own, for free, and any tools they might, er, encounter.
In this way I got a lot of clay via sweat equity, and though I did have
close encounters with
needle tools, i never had to buy a needle tool, cutoff wire or any ribs
for four years. my apologies to the archaeologists.
I have more than compensated with
pennies, dimes, paperclips, test tiles and hairbands.
