Stevie has this advice:
(pots by Gary Rith)
I am going to a RAKU party in a couple of weeks and wanted to make some totally textured pieces. RAKU is a very direct ceramics firing process: using tough clay, you quickly raise the firing temps to melting, then reach in with metal tongs and grab the hot piece and then smoke it with sawdust etc, then dip it into water like a hot horseshoe. Havn't done raku since 1986, probably try to get a bunch of my buddies together for the party.....
ANYWAY, Stevie writes yesterday, re: Blogging for Dummies chapter 9--
Want people to read your blog? Visit other blogs and sprinkle comments around. You would think it would be obvious, but nothing gets attention faster than leaving comments. I seem to follow 100 blogs, and it has become a somewhat slow process, following them all, but I enjoy trying :)
And speaking of Stevie, comment forms.
Blogging for dummies, chapter 10: Stevie has the absolute WORST comment form. People should really SIMPLIFY commenting. Steve is my absolute best pal, but I hate Stevie's comment form, it takes forever....
Love my way :)
