Reading Rainbow featured a raku potter from Hawaii. He threw a almost
closed round form, with about a one inch opening at the top. They looked
to be about 16 inches in diameter. He then mixed some glaze and raku fired
two pieces. They turned out kind of shiny off-white on top and black on the
bottom. I wasn't sure of the spelling of his name, sounded like Cho Lee
Ong? Sorry for bad spelling. Can anyone help me out with the right name?

Not sure about who you are looking for but there is a wonderful Raku potter
in Hawaii. His name is Steve Goldberg. He received his MFA at the U of
Miami..His family owns Miami Clay..If you reach him tell him hi for me...

The name you are looking for is Chiu Leong. He s a potter on the Island of
Hawai i. He lives with his family in the village of Volcano, in a wonderful
house he built up in the clouds and mist. It s a wonder place, particularly
when the sun shines. Knew him well when I lived in those parts.
