Yeah, this is me, preparing a pot for pit firing. And no, I’m not a real monk. I do work with clay, though, as a potter and ceramic artist. So this “clay monk” bit is just my nom de plume of sort. If you really want to know more about me, you can try my regular web site — unfortunately it’s kind of out of date already. :-(
UPDATE 2006-08-11: Now you can find out more about me in this new post.
UPDATE 2006-08-20: Some more photos of me can be found here.
