I have taken a couple of workshops from Bill over the last 20 years.
His demonstration of packing pots for shipping still haunts me, and I
recall it every year when shipping back the unsold pots from the
Strictly Functional Pottery National. He showed us how to pack and
then threw it as hard as he could to prove it is impossible to break
the pots IF they are packed correctly!! He is an excellent potter and
gives an excellent workshop. I heartily recommend it to anyone who
can get in on one of his workshops!
