We have been many year visited the studio has wonderful helpers. We met the guy who work the slab table and also met the gentalmen who organized the warehouse and fired the gas kiln. They were very helpful we even purchased from some shows they have done those to guys are awsome. When those guys started there the pottery improved. We were going to visit next week but we heard some the helpers may no longer be there so we will NO LONGER buy from this Shop. He has had many different helpers in and out of that shop those guys has been the best yet. Forgot to mention the owner is quite UNSANITARY ""Disgusting."" We had purchased many pieces of the hand built items in the copper red and tan ash looked lovely.
