There had been some discussion on " Clay Buddies" about ball openers recently. I have included pictures of one that Mark uses for larger pots. A fellow made a few some years ago with plans of mass producing them but he never did.The consensus in North Carolina seems to be that if you make bigger pots they can help you do it with less wear and tear on your body.
No visit would be complete without a stop in the gallery where we all disposed of some of our disposable income. It was a lovely visit and a stop you should make if you are ever in their neck of the woods. If you want to keep up with them from afar, Meredith writes the "Whynot Pottery Blog" blog and does it much better than mine. Don't go too far away, there are still two more installments coming soon!
