I hope everyone had a excellent weekend. Mrs. Rose and I had a nice relaxing time. Working around the house etc. Saturday we had our first showing of the year at our Outdoor Theater, The Dark Crystal. It was great. Plus this was the first time we got to use our Nintendo Wii at the theater. Sooo much fun. except for the part where our Friends Corey and Dan's almost 5 year old daughter Claire, beat the pants off me at boxing...Yes I do feel inadequate.

Here is a picture of the theater. It is tons of fun. It dosen't show well in the picture, but the screen is 20' wide! Learn more about Outdoor Theaters Here and Here.

Ok, Back to Clay.

I have been working on a project for a couple of days that some of you may have noticed. On the right side of the blog, you will now notice a long list, labeled Ceramic Blogs-Master List. I started this the other day when I realized that my own collection of bookmarked ceramic blogs was a mess. So I decided to start a list of EVERY ceramic blogs out there. So far the list is 310 (310!) blogs long (not including this very blog). I can't believe the size of the list, and it keeps growing. It goes to show, how big the ceramics community out there is. If you know one that I missed, let me know by posting a comment with this post. I made this list with the help of my friends on Twitter. On a side note, everyone should really head over to Twitter and start a profile. I didn't think too much of it at first. When I found the ceramics community, it became a whole new thing. You can find the community from my profile. It is a great group of people and ever growing.

Also I want to welcome a new member to the Slipcast community. We are going to have a guest Blogger in July, Avi Arenfeld. Avi is an old student of mine and a great potter. Avi Is from NYC and has his BFA from Alfred. he is currently in California, as last year he was a resident at the Mendocino Art Center.

On top of that, he is a web designer. He did the website for mattanddavesclays.com. If you are looking for a great web designer, contact Avi.

Avi is going to Japan in July for a couple of weeks and he is going to report on all thing ceramics going on in the land of the Rising Sun. Should be awesome!
