Hello David and Martin!
This site as well as Rufford site, are good not only to our American
friends, that might come to the U.K., but also to our friends from the
"other" countries that travel only into the virtual world, inside their
I have here a list, I prepared for a friend, I send it to the list too.
You could see that I give a few minutes every day to my computer. Last
month I bought a C.D. from Rufford Ceramic Center. a very nice collection of
English potters. Not all of them, but "well done". I have some problem, with
opening, some of the functions there, I will see if in windows 98, it will
work better, but still it is very a very good collection of artists and some
activities, some for us and some for our children that are being tiered from
their childish (potter) parents that are overexcited from what is coming out
of their kilns!
In the C.D. Some well known artist explain through "apple Plug in" their
work. It takes them one minute each! This, and other "Artists statements, on
the personal pages, (when written by other artists, can show us the power of
the short statement, and the tiring long artist statement mean: Do they pay
you more for your words or you want me to read all and remember in the end
what acutely I am reading?

Rufford Shop:
>From there you have links to the ceramic center
Here is a part list I prepared, for a fiend of mine, out of the site, that
you, David, sent us, according to my test, it is not finished, I will go on
and send latter more sites.
