I've taken a job in Wichita, Kansas and am looking for some place to get my
hands in clay. Not sure yet how long I'll be here, depends on how the job
works out. In the meantime all my clay stuff is back in Montreal...If anyone
can point me in the right direction I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.
