remember, in the last couple of years,
we have been witness to several of nil's handles
falling right off.

yes, a fact.

karen terpstra has suggested nils read the section
of my book on handles. spooze and score. (thank you peggy.)
equal amounts of:
vinegar
sugar
slip
water...alter to taste. if you use porcelain, use
it as the slip.

my handles do not fall off, ever...never have, never will.

next he will make a kiln out of 1/8" kaowool paper. you know,
like an 80 cubic foot kiln.
and then he just lets kelly win the contest. gorilla snot slip'.
who wants one of his stinnnken tea bowls?
(i bet he will forget to give kelly her teabowl, he is old
you know.)

So...
if a handle falls off a mug and there is no potter there to hear it...
does that make it a teabowl?
Or is the handle "just an accessory?"

See some of you this week on the "wrong coast"
