Interested..for sure but being a lurker for nearly two years now I thought
this might be out of my league.
Never had a ceramicsmagasin tillnow. So I wouldn't now what it would cost,
moneywise that is.
On the moment I am struggling my way through a school which is ment to
deliver professional potters. Meaning a lot of binary and other
glazetesting,which is actually great fun (and yes that very difficult to me
Seger too). Trying to get a grip on my fingers at the wheel, which always
tend to end up at all of the wrong places.Aso.Aso.(fortunately part of it is
also handbuilding which I simply love).
Never intended to be a professional potter actually but I simply love clay
and need to understand more about it that's all.

Another thing is that I am Dutch and therefore living in Holland......might
be not that easy to do the trick.

Bottom line.....very interested. me Clayart has been very helpful to widen my horison on what
ceramics can be.
