Today is the deadline for Robin to have all his official paperwork in to complete his graduate studies. Signatures accounted for, forms filled out, proposal submitted and now the last dash to the finish. Well, sort of finish. He is defending his thesis on December 17th, but as a potter's work is never done, he will likely continue to fire over the Christmas break to see if there are any more gems to be had out of the overworked soda kiln. Good luck to him, and to the rest of us these next couple of weeks. Let's hope nobody Quacks!
