First of all just a quick side note to one of the comments on my last post. I welcome comments that may disagree with my point of view, but I will argue back, I would argue with a wall as my mom used to say! I may live in my own little "reality" and I like that just fine but I am not out of touch with Reality. I live with an Associated Press photojournalist and a teenager that is a comparative politics and current events junkie so reality smacks me in the face around here 24/7. The reality is that we are all taking it up the ass from Corporate America and getting screwed every way you look and I am just trying to make peace with that and buy some food from farmers that are working their asses off in 90 degree weather and selling me a bag full of squash for 70 cents that they should be able to charge a lot more for, but they have to know that none of us out there have a lot of money right now except for Assholes like those at BP that can take their F'ing day off to go sailing for God's sake! I'm really sick of the state of this country and this book I just read motivated me to go out and buy from those hard working people in my community that are growing good decent crops and what the Hell is wrong with that! NOW.......
I got a new slab roller! Thanks to my Raku students for taking my last class that allowed me to buy this!
Bye Bye to this pain in the butt way of rolling slabs!!!!!
and I have been making fun little pot holders with the loom my mom had as a kid. When we were in the Mts. I found a bag of loopers and thought it would be fun to make some. I'm using old Christmas ones that are burnt and sad because I just never go out with the thought of "hey, I'm going to buy pot holders today!" So I have some nice ones that I made with my own two hands, How's that for reality!!!! hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!
