Gary is like a blogging machine. He is also a fantastic potter, avid bike rider and expert sunrise photographer. Check out his blog for some great photos of his pottery making process, the sunrise over Chicago and much more. Congratulations Gary, and thanks for sharing so much with us!

Thanks to everyone who has followed along with my blog over the years. I hope that I have somehow, at some times, either inspired, motivated or at least brought a smile to your face. Thanks for “putting up with” my obsession with stamping & addiction to biking. There are always times when you wonder if anyone is even reading my endless drivel… but apparently so. Who knew?

Special thanks also to my friend and fellow-potter (and former studio neighbor) Emily Murphy who got me started on this blogging adventure several years ago. At the time she was already blogging and I was very reluctant. I didn’t see the purpose. I doubted that blogging, or any social networking for that matter, would ever catch on. Who has time to sit down and read blogs?… I need to make pots!!! It just sounded like “one more hassle” that I would have to keep up with. Well, Emily was very persuasive AND persistent… and even help set-up & build the beginning of this blog. Thank you again Emily & Ian. Without you guys, I doubt I would have ever started this blog… and would never have become so addicted to sharing my stories, photos & sunrises!!!

So, thank you again to everyone who follows along with Fire When Ready Pottery.
I will try my best to make sure that 2015 is filled with more blog posts about pottery, techniques, My Talented Friends, sunrise bike rides, and anything else that I find intriguing and worth sharing. Keep following and I’ll keep posting!!!

Thanks Again.
And thanks to Pottery Making Info online for following, sharing my stories through their website… and for promoting & championing the world of Pottery for all of us who love it so dearly.

I have been following your blog since I started going to a pottery class a little over a year ago and I think I’m addicted to texture and stamping on my amateurish pieces thanks to you. I love your pottery and your blog.
