Some dude showed up at the studio the other day with a milk crate full of pottery books and magazines, including a bunch of back issues of Ceramics Monthly. Y’know, the *good* back issues, from when they still published glaze recipes.
After the last bout of intense production (especially the last few weeks), these seem like treasures. I want to make something new and stupidly fancy and intricate. Something I have never done before and never will again, over which I can lavish all the time and attention I want. And here, just at the right time, I have a stack of magazines, which are basically just pages and pages of wonderfully inspiring pottery porn.
 *Shakes fist of fury at editors who got rid of recipes.*
