Nothing.? ........somebody should say something for George ..... And that shall be me . I worked with George in grad school. George knew clay very well -and it was a great time -great. We built kilns ,threaded gas pipes , made many tons of clay , fired the salt a hundred times ..everything ..the whole artschoolceramicsprogram thing -the lasagna. dinners , talking into the night about clay , art , techniques , etc. George was a great help to me -that , and his kindness to me will never be forgotten . .....and Mary , if you ever read this .... Iam so very sorry for your loss . Regards, Gary Schlappal
