I went to Coleville last week with Lee and got three tons of clay and dry materials. I also picked up this used slab roller. Actually it had not been used but had been previously owned by a fellow who fancied the idea of being a potter and got a whole studio full of new gear and then never did much with it. The canvas sheets that are used to roll the clay are completely clean and new. It will ge tused a lot here.

I have been making a few slab pots using an old baker’s rolling pin that Karma Distefano gave me thirty five years ago. I’ve had it in my head for a while to get a slab roller and make some new molds. With that order of dry materials is 200 lbs of potter’s plaster.
