The Banff center in Canada has space available that's just what
you're looking for: fully equipt for short term projects- I believe they
have plenty of room for large scale work. I think they make space available
on a monthly basis for the short term projects. I haven't been there, but I
talked to them at NCECA last year. They have a great reputation. I don't
know if assistants are available or not. Worth giving them a call
(unfortunately, my book with their brochure is in my studio, or I would
give you their number).

Good Luck-
David Hooker

Sara, Although I doubt I would return to Lynn,(my birthplace) it is
pleasant to hear that the "Pink pills for pale people pottery" continues to
survive. Phillip White bought my studio in Marblehead,allowing me to travel
to Japan, which ledto marriage,and eventual work in several countries. If
you know of the whereabouts of Phil White,I would be grateful if you might
say "Hello" for me.

I am searching for rental studio space in Chester county
Pa. with access to a gas kiln. Hopefully a communal
studio of fun loving, sharing potters. Please send any
information to Thanks

I believe there was an ad on the bulletin board at Chester Springs studio
recently for potters to share a studio with. I will be there next week
and will check it out for you. I may be there for Studio days this
weekend, and if the ceramics studio is open I can check then.

Hi fellow clayarters,

I'm probably crazy to think that I can find affordable studio space near my
home in Cambridge, MA. I've heard it said that land in the Boston area is
the costliest in the US. But we don't need much.

Another potter and I could make do just fine with 400 square feet.
Electricity for a kiln, a water source and some heat, but the rest is
negotiable. A garage or someone's basement would do just fine. The maximum
that we want to spend at this point is $400 per month.

Please contact me off list if you have any leads.
Thanks in advance,
Judy Kanigel

Peter in Florida once sent me enlarged photographs
of his studio space so I could better determine how
to use mine to accommodate extruders, slab roller
etc. This generous gift was invaluable in explaining
to #1 Support Person what floor plan to use in our
big 2 1/2 car garage, plus a workshop across the back
which later became my glaze room. It IS true
that one expands to fill the space.......... and the
work expands to fill the time......

I have those pics still and, unless Peter objects,
I'd be glad to share one of the shots of his studio
interior. Please e-mail me directly if you'd like
one. In turn, I'll wait a few days before snail
to see if I hear from Peter. First come; first
served. =20

In the Mojave where it's down to 89F next few
days, and no significant humidity except that
produced by the swamp coolers ...... for us,
that's a Cool Spell ... saw the roadrunner taking
advantage of the cool to make his rounds,
which pleased me because I want=20
him to catch the snake if he hasn't already.....
and where I saw the teeniest lizard ever. If
it hadn't been for his hustling, I'd have missed
him for sure...... not an inch long.... I didn't
know they came that small. on mon 11 dec 06
