Here it is, the glamorous life of the potter: we are all good looking, buff, and romantic. Farmer's wife brought this up yesterday.
When I taught high school students pottery I would show them this clip on the first day of class. YES, they were pretty excited to get started.
Have I mentioned how I met my wife? She saw me working as a potter and....yes, it is true. Chicks dig potters. When I was in college, there was one or two other guys making pots and about 80 young women. I thought everybody went to college to make pots, listen to the Grateful Dead and, you know, all the rest. I have always been surprised that some people go to college to study accounting and engineering, but of course, it takes all kinds.
Later today, as requested, movie clips of me finishing plates and glazing too. And soon, teapot clips too, yippee!
