Raku Burn Party 2014 - discussion with the group about whether there should be an open invitation to the public or members only.  Safety / liability and quality / composition of pots to be fired were concerns that arose from the 2013 party.   Various ideas on how to manage / organize the day were presented.  Roger Cocke agreed to put together a committee to come up with a plan, after the first of the year.   Please let Roger know if you're willing to help plan and organize the 2014 raku party.

Holiday Party will be 12/9/13 at Comador Stewart's home, 6 - 9 PM.  We will have more details at the next meeting on 11/18/13 (at the SVC Ceramics Lab).  Traditionally we have a pottery gift exchange and potluck.
