    I really enjoyed this video with Prof Linhares. I particularly enjoyed the interview with him and his comments about flow, infusing new aspects into his work with study in Cuba and his general comments about life as a teacher/parent/potter. Thank you!

  • Donald P.

    I agree with Mike… kinda deceptive saying the glaze formulas would be given, and then not giving them….

    • Ash N.

      Hi Donald, the recipe PDF is in the video description just above the CLAYflicks help guide. – CAN Staff

  • Mike H.

    In the video Paul says the glaze formulas are available on the dvd but they didn’t come up at the end of this. Are they available by any chance – this was a terrific video. Thanks.
