Mel: Having a good reputation has and always will be a good thing. it is
usually earned by hard work. People that earn good reputations rarely wear
them out. People that work for their money are careful with it and respect
it's use.. Those that get it from someone elses hard work are not so
Anyone that has copied what i do, I haven't noticed. Not one one of them has
done it as well, or i would have noticed. if only the glaze is the giveaway
then the pot wasn't all that successful.
