minute teapot

I enjoyed your "name that tune" analogy. I just wanted to comment on the part
below. I LOVE have several hundred pounds of clay on hand. I always try to to
have enough clay on hand that I can make anything that I want. When the supply
runs low, I begin to fret about what to make, "oh, I've only got 19 lbs left,
can't waste it, what'll I make?" It's not really a question of waste so much as
having to decide. Having enough clay is liberating in the sense that my mind is
free to make anything. One of the most mind blowing experiences that I ever had
was ordering 10 tons of premixed clay at one time. It was part of a business
plan. But all that clay....! I couldn't wait to get started!
