Paul Blais | Episode 1

Green bowl w round red 2This is the first of the show notes for The Potters Cast. Because this is me, Paul Blais giving an introduction to the show, I thought I would take a moment and introduce myself here on the website also. I am a hobby potter that totally loves clay. I also love people and talking. I also am a podcaster for another show called Doubt The Doubts (www.DoubtTheDoubts.com). I’ve been wanting to serve the pottery/ceramic community for a log time with a podcast that was totally dedicated to them. This is show is it.

Here are a few examples of my work.

All of my work is currently fired to cone 6. I am not a glaze technician, but I do plan on growing in this area. Currently I use commercially available glazes for my work. My main work station is my Brent wheel. I love the strength and reliability of this wheel. Here’s a shot of me in my studio.

So that’s me in a nutshell. For more information about me or the podcast, check out the about page.┬áIf you would like to read more about my journey as a cancer patient, then check out my personal blog.

Lots of love to you.

  • Nice to discover your podcast! I guess I’m a late arrival but current listener!

      Michael, thanks for the comment and I am really happy to hear you like the show. I would say at this point in the game, you are not even close to being a late arriver (I don’t think that is a real word, but I’m going to use it anyway). The show is exactly three weeks old. Welcome to the club!

    Going to spend my spare time over the next couple of weeks catching up. I love the idea.
