$40 for two days with Craig Martell. Oh my. That's a bargain
worth a few hundred extra miles of driving. I attended a
workshop he had in Boulder Colorado (a three hour drive) for
much more and consider that a very worthwhile experience.
Ask him to bring some blue celadon tea bowls and those great
covered footed pots with the ash glazes and slip trailing.
Killer porcelain pots, but his ideas translate to all clay
types. Oh did I say he is a great guy? He is.

serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly
proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier
wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."

For those of you coming for the Craig Martell workshop at Wendt Pottery this
coming weekend--don't worry about bringing food for Friday. The Palouse
Studio Potters Guild will provide lunch.

Looking forward to meeting more clayarters--workshop should be great!

See ya then,
Judith Marvin
