Ultimate Potter

The newer trend in pottery is to be making dishes for a restaurant. I used to do it for a bridal registry. All…by…myself. I loved that I helped design the dishes, the colors, and helped name the sets but also hated the many hours of work, kiln disasters, glaze disasters, and the tedium of it. However, Jono Pandolfi has a great set up, great looking tools, a staff, and many orders. I think this would make the whole experience much fun. I would definitely change my mind about going back into the production biz if I had a team and a great set of stuff to help me create the products.
Read the article, The Latest Farm-to-Table Trend: Rustic Tableware, attached to the pic below, and check out the video that accompanies it. Neat stuff.

Prince Rupert’s Drops Explained

This video comes from SmarterEveryDay. It shows one way glass can be strong but fragile at the same time. I love to use glass but am also very interested in the science behind it as well. I hope you enjoy learning about it as much as I do. By the way, Prince Rupert was a Belgian scientist that helped make these glass drops famous in the 1600s.
Here is the Wikipedia page about this – click the photo.

Creative Reuse

Oh wow! These sculptures have one me over. One because the man is inspired by nature, not unlike myself. Two, he has outstanding skill at what he does. And, three, he makes these sculptures from parts he finds at flea markets or from parts that have been given to him, making them wholly unrecognizable. I am so glad I ran across this article. I wish I could own one.
