Hello Clayart:

I have not posted on  Clayart for over a year -- been run ragged trying to care for aging parents. 


I have just moved from Maryland to Florida (Pompano Beach) and I am anxious to meet other potters here, to find some studio space, to find some local art activities, etc.  Someone told me once that there was a place like Torpedo Factory in West Palm Beach?


Right now, my schedule is flexible.  I am just looking for an excuse to drive around southern Florida (especially places like Naples, the Keys, Palm Beach, etc. ).  So, are there Florida potters on Clayart?

Too bad we can't bottle (or freeze-dry) some of this Florida sun and ship it to sun-deprived places like Portland Oregon.  Where is High Technology when you really need it!

I am not familiar with the Torpedo Factory but there is The Armory in West
Palm Beach. ( There is also a Pottery Guild in Miami
( There is a place with
shared studio south of Fort Lauderdale (Fire and Mud?)which I have also
found online but cannot find a link right now. You are close to the
Broward College and also Atlantic University in Boca which offers classes.
Welcome to South Florida!
