I've really been inspired by watching the video made available through the University of MN and the Northern Clay Center. But as I was trying to show this video on a friends iPad, I realized that the video format (flash) wasn't viewable on it or probably iPhone or iPod touch.
So I took it upon myself to try to reformat the whole video. Unfortunately, that would be a lot of work and energy that I need to devote to my pots, today. But I decided to share this introduction by Michael Simon. I recorded this from my monitor, the quality isn't be that great. But I hope that you take some inspiration from it.
