Though ceramics themselves are not a green product I do agree that buying handmade and locally is ultimately the best way to go. It is virtually impossible to make anything without causing some sort of impact but there are ways to lessen that impact and to be aware. Many of you wrote about ways you are doing that in your own studios and passed on some ideas of what everyone can do to be more conscious about their studio practices and the impact they might have on the environment. Thank you all for your comments and if anyone else out there has any tips they would like to share, please do let us know.
Now on a more personal note; I have been a little out of the loop as of late. Distractions by loved ones, kitchen painting, sight seeing and lots of laying in the park and ice cream eating has put me a little behind but happy and well rested. So many exciting things are coming up in the next few months. I will be back again soon to fill you all in on the details. For now happy Monday to you all!
