There are oodles of lists and sites out there that rank blogs, so many exist that even I've made it onto a few lists. I made it onto this list.
•Support Your Local Potter: One could potentially think of Texas as too arid to support authentic artistry. Don't let blogger Brandon Philips get word of your suspicions on the state; he's mined Lonestar country for true ceramics fertility. His blog chronicles his real, gritty, and often glorious experiences as a man of the ceramics craft. He does not refrain from sharing honest and heartfelt anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of a not-always-lucrative career in the art form.
•Why We Love It: A stellar and straightforward blog that makes it clear that the rough blows of everyday life can result in great work.
•Favorite Post: Invincible
My favorite part: "he's mined Lonestar country for true ceramics fertility." I may have to put that on my banner up top. Ha!
But seriously pottery folks, we're getting beat by the slipcasters on the "best blog list." The slipcasters!!! And they make crappy ass over-priced clay.
I've about milked all the fertility out of this piece of the lonestar state.
