can that stuff be posted ?

I have been following the discussion on the new book, I agree that the book
ought to have a chance to sell, before anything is shared that can be traced
right back to it. Although I also know a lot of folks who do pottery at the
school where I go, who have no idea what ClayArt Listserv is, or even that
folks share glaze and clay body recipies, and expereince on the Internet.
They think that if they want to learn about pottery, they have to go to
school, or the bookstore and buy a book. So as long as they are staying in
the dark, I bet the book will sell just fine.

I have been wondering about posting some glaze recipes and clay body
formula's that come from a old loose leaf binder, that I think is from the
Kansas City Art Institute, it is very old, a copy of a copy of a copy, so
old and don't ask me why, the pages are read from the back of the book to
the front. That is how they are punched, and layed out. I think at one
point, I was either a friend of someone who went there, or something
similar. My mother has told me that in college, I built a climbing kiln on
the schools property, and fired it.

I have wanted to try some of these, only also wanted to ask from expereince
from those here, what they might be, or look like, or RUN like.
