Materials for High School Program Needed -  I teach at Columbia since 1989.  We have a strong ceramics department and we have relied mostly on donations of materials,
kilns and wheels.  Our local high school allowed the ceramics department to close when the teacher retired, and I am trying to keep some offering of college classes at the high school.  
Our college will be allowed to restart a program in January and I am looking for cone 5-6 glazes and glaze material and recipes.  In addition, our raku-lowfire program at the college
needs an infusion of your unwanted lowfire glazes and underglazes.  I would be happy to pick them up.  We like discontinued old glazes for our non functional work.  We also have a high
fire program and would be glad to pick up chemicals for mixing glazes.  So, if you are looking to get rid of unwanted glazes and materials, please email me!  I am headed to the Bay Area
and always willing to pick up.  If it is a big donation and you need a donation receipt, we can work that out.
