hi deb, i don't know if you remember helping me out a year or two ago about how to fire larger pieces, but it worked like a charm. i have a different question that you might be able to help with. i want to be able to fire pieces that are going to take more heat than i'm presently using and i'm going to be building a new ventilation system to handle it. can you give me any help with what kind of fan i should get? we're thinking of building a large come format over the work space but i'm not sure what kind of fan to get. any help or direction you can give would be greatly appreciated. hey, will you be at the conf in toronto? anne

"Well said, Brigitte!Unfortunately, I think I know precisely what forum you are speaking of. I was bullied there and told the bully I took offense at their comment. It only became worse and as you said, their buddies jumped in to cheer them on. It…"

I witnessed a bunch of troublesome ‘discussions’ this past week. Not on crafthaus and not directed at me personally, but troublesome nevertheless. They also weren’t real discussions either, as in: a respectful exchange of opinions where one side hears the other out. It…
