Sofia's Dad's Blog of the Month



Jim Gottuso's blog, Sofia's Dad's Pots is my choice for April's blog of the month. Certainly one of the more active of the ceramic bloggers, Jim keeps us entertained with stories and events of his life as both a father and a potter. he shares his thoughts as well as some of his really interesting inventions, such as glazing posts for bowls and mugs, freely and generously, in his frequent posts. Interspersed with these, are images of Jim's beautifully meticulous work, an example of which is shown here. Jim, all I can say is thank you for sharing your wonderful work, and your enjoyable anecdotes with us as Sofia's Dad. Long may you continue.

Jim is a fabulous writer, excellent vocabulary and definitely has a way with words. Gaining insight into the life of a potter is very interesting, especially at time (Fortress Ceramica - Answered Prayers) when many would consider it a futile career prospect.
He has a wonderful sense of humour and a master-crafts person. Wonderful to see him getting the recognition he deserves.

John I love the new styling of the blog - it looks great
