I think I've been pretty influenced by his blogging approach.
I don't think my pottery has been that influenced by him. (Of course this is impossible to tell.)
I also salute Gary for selling his pottery through all kinds of venues...galleries, art shows, on line, and his etsy shop. I'm glad that he shares almost all his secrets on line....recipes, dreams, pet sitting, wonderful walks.
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
