I decided to take a local pottery class to meet local potters and learn of locations to purchase clay and supplies. I've already learned of a local warehouse where I'll be able to purchase Highwater Clays. The class works with mid range clays and I'll be able to get my work fired there till I have a chance to sit up my new studio and get another kiln.
Richard Russell Scenic Byway in a near blizzard which blew in all of a sudden. When I got to the top of the almost 4000 foot mountains my car was sliding in the snow on the highway; my car isn't four wheel drive. I kept moving and thankfully made it over. Gary was down in Florida wiring funds for the closing so I was glad I had no mishaps. I borrowed the photo above which is at the top of the pass. The ice is on the north side of the mountains and doesn't melt in winter. We routinely see folks ice climbing on the icicle covered rocks. Yesterday no one was up there but me. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
