In the past couple years, the holidays seem to be anything but joyous and plentiful. My husband and I have no exchanged gifts on Christmas for the past couple years, because we have both been so broke, and it came down to, "Do I buy the DVD set he's been wanting, or do we pay the electric bill?"
Neither of us really NEEDED anything. Who gives a crap about phones, ipads, and MP3 players? They're short lived electronic devices... certainly nothing I get giddy about.
As I regained my interest in ceramics this past January, I have come to see the expenses of buying clay, glaze, slip, stain, molds, etc...
So if Santa were to ask me what I wanted from Christmas, then here's a quick list. Nothing fancy, but just some essentials, and then some.
Bamboo tools' Siphon Blower (See a couple entries down about what it is)
Naomi Cleary tumblers
Carolyn Concho bowl--
Shimpo VLITE Potters Wheel
(5)-12" drilled plastic batts (10" drilled holes)
Now--- For the fun part
MAYCO Jungle Gem glazes (Non Toxic) ALL OF THEM
MAYCO UG-19(Electra Blue Underglaze)
MAYCO UG-50(Black underglaze)
MAYCO UG-51(White underglaze)
MAYCO SW-101 (Stoned denim Stoneware)
MAYCO SW-104 (Black Walnut Stoneware)
MAYCO writer bottle and tip (18ga)
So yes, I have a list of wants a needs... now if only I could find such a generous Secret Santa....
If I don't write before... Happy Holidays to you and yours!!
