Why pottery is in a blog.....

I have been a full time potter for going on twenty years. Selling in craft shows, galleries and catalogs. When I am out talking to my customers I spend about half my time explaining how I do my craft.
The history of Raku.
What is the best burning material?
What is stoneware and can it be microwaved?
How hot does a kiln get?
Is there any lead in my glazes?
There is so much to the world of clay. It is the study of not only the manipulation of the clay, but also chemistry, geology, structural physics and history. I do not know it all and am always learning more everyday. Yet I will pass on all the information as I get it.
