Dear Mike: You could learn so much from us Canucks. Good to hear you're
hangin' out with some. Here I thought the Yanks were the kings of
marketing. When I had my chamber kiln and salted the second chamber i too
had brown boogers fall down from the arch on the pots. I called them
"Potter's Tears" and charged more for them.
Most of us long time wood firers have learned to turn dog turds into
Drop by anytime, when you're off to stock that Tuckers Canadian made clay.
