In the archives I can only find two references to Studio Potter and
they were both asking for the address.
Has this magazine fallen into disfavor with the Clayart group?
I was one of the charter subscribers and continued to recieve it until
the early 80s when I "lost my passion" for clay. This was one of my
favorite magazines, except for the bi-annual publishing dates, as it
covered more Hardcore Potter stuff. Like the Soldner drive around
clay mixer, wood fired kilns like the climbing and anagama models. If
I remember correctly, It had some wierd MFT kiln plans too.
Just curious as to why there are no posts.

I've mentioned Studio Potter here before. It has always been my
favorite pottery magazine.
This issue is focused on my teacher Tatsuzo Shimaoka and I have a
little artilce in it and three photos. Shimaoka's lecture from the Regis
Master's Series lecture is in it as well as articles from 12 Western apprentices
and students, oh, and one by Warren MacKenzie too.

It was always one of my favorites too. I only recently re-subscribed
and ordered a number of the original issues as far back as they still
have in stock. I started by re-reading the oldies first and was saving
the new edition as the next one isn't until the end of the yead.
So I went and opened it up and sure enough, there you are.
This internet thing is so fantastic. To have dialogue with a potter half
way around the world, and then pick up my favorite mud mag and see
him and the place he works.
Shimaoka is an incredible potter, you are fortunate indeed to
apprentice under him. From the looks on his face I would say that he
is a man who enjoys life. Those are the easiest to learn from. I love his
large bowls. I am deffinately going to attempt to coppy them. Guess
that means that I am going to have to build the first kiln just a bit larger
than I was planning.
I am ordering some refractories tomorrow.
Thanks for your reply.
