cringe.

There is a fantastically awful video of me firing my kiln and going on and on about god knows what. It can be seen here. The visuals are nice but it's probably better with the volume down. Enjoy.

what are YOU talking about? That video was awesome. You come across very candid and honest and humble. Put it on your website.

Very good video Brandon. Good to hear you still say Minnesota like a Minnesotan. It's the last part of the accent (we don't have) to go after you leave here.

It's great Brandon! It's nice to finally meet you, in a way. You're just like I thought you were from your writing.

Hi Brandon, Your video is excellent. I hope someday to have the opportunity to wood fire. Your results are just beautiful.

thought you did a great job... i've always found it difficult to not have huge silences with nothing interesting coming to mind to say but you just kept talking and it all made sense and was pretty interesting too.

i didn't have anything to do with this(other than being interviewed.) the gallery i just had my show at does these short little videos for every artist/show. the guy was supposed to just come out and film the firing...i didn't know he was going to be asking questions. the interview was supposed to come later...i suppose this is a little more candid. there was some moments of silence and some blither that all got edited out, he took a good 30-40 minutes worth of footage. gosh, i hate listening to myself talk, i'm sure i'm not the only one.

they're in issues of the studio potter www.studiopotter.org volume 22, #1 & 2 they're both sold out...so i'm not sure where you can get copies of it. the folks who wrote it are at www.rockcreekpottery.com you may be able to get something from them.
