hey, you...JANET.
crabby pants.

the reason you do not use sable and the like
on pots, is that they wear out fast on the rough
bisque surface.

great brushes are great for a 500 pound arches`.

but, for clay, bisque, pots, wax....pigment.
make my own.
would not waste a sable brush in the clay studio.

that is my way. of course with my japo slapo brush
technique, i could use dead skunk hair.

and do not be critical of the mayor...or, i will
zap your long posts written in german.

so, you get a headache...who doesn't? try moderating
clayart...migraine city.

damn woman, living in wales, never comes to nceca.
speaks german all the time, reads books, and has a
gallery. (i thought she was a priest when she first came
on clayart...chapel, indeed.`) then i had to make tiles...(ick)
and send them to wales.

well, crabby pants.
be good. be smiley.
be happy.
have a nice day.
melvin lee
kiln plans for jt.
don't think you will find them....just go
to ann arbor. stand in one of his kilns.
you will not believe it.
i now know why rhodes would not publish it.
he did not understand them. it was too simple.

Hey, you MELVIN no-relation-of-Bruce LEE...
You know what?

You made me smile :-)
you made my day
and
you rid me of crabs :-)

Quite something for a man who uses smelly, dead-or-alive skunk brushes
to paint on 500lb Arches paper!! Sable? Pooh! Those wonderful Japanese
brushes are not made of poor little Arctic inhabitants and anyway,
squirrel is good enough for underneath the arches and over the pots.
Gently. Let the brush "pour" the pigment. No, not wax and no he-man
stuff. Just laying-on of colour, like a lover... Controlled
abandonment. No splashing around...

Of course making a tile to send to Wales was just penance after you
came to the UK, but did not come to visit The Chapel of Art. Yes, yes,
we know! Just hoity-toity down with all the nobs in London then
travelled past within a crow's spit... So because you did that (adding
insult to injury) is why your part of The Path has turned out this
funny orange colour and not a nice mother-in-law blue. Serves you
right.

As for Eeny See-Kay... You want to spoil things? One unguarded moment,
a smile rising to a giggle, to a full backward laugh. I'd clear the
Clayart room. A full Janet laugh is against all international health
and safety regulations for enclosed spaces. North America has tried it
once or twice before, but word got back to the Embassy in London...
First visa was indefinite "for life", second a short six months, third
a piddling one month. They have a file with notes like "not ladylike
enough" and "totally un-PC".

Yes, indeedy, Mr. Mayor... always foot-in-mouth. In person, as well as
in print... Verstehen Sie? Talk funny too... Cannot speak mini
Tonkean. No mug either... How can any Clayarter show up without? Don't
even have choccy bribes available and it is the wrong time of year for
baking Plštzchen. And I don't forget you prefer Ludefisk to Haggis
anyway. ¶¨ř Blah!

Still, it takes all sorts... And thanks for being my favourite Mayor.
You really know how to cheer a girl up! Ich habe Dich sehr lieb!
Wirklich!

Janet Kaiser - just giggling, 'cause I don't want to wake Eckhard up
or disturb the neighbours... They wouldn't believe I have not gone
stark raving bonkers... "Talking" to thousands, but laughing to
myself... Y'all come save me from the nice men in white coats. You
will, won't you....!? Please....

NO! No! The world needs more people with your sense of humor - I loved
what you wrote.
