Getting Schooled

My daughter, her boyfriend and I went to the local high school today. We went to see her old ceramics teacher and get some pointers on how to construct a clay wheel, and find out a little about the kiln that has been sitting on the back porch for a couple of years.
He was great, showed us the wheels they have in the classroom and gave us some pointers on how to make ours.
Turns out the kiln is pretty good, we should be able to fire up to a 06 clay.
I can’t remember the last time I was on a school campus during the school day. I feel really old.


  1. A "clay wheel" ?? Would that be a potter's wheel or do you want to start making wheels made of clay??

  2. You are correct sir, bad mistake on my part. Nice to see someone paying attention. However, maybe there is a market for clay wheels.
