- Help needed for the Hopi Nation (posted 6/26/20)
Guild member Sharon Miller is requesting donations to ease the burdens that COVID-19 has placed on the Hopi Nation. As many of you likely know, COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on people of color and hardest hit among them is the Navajo Nation which is adjacent to the Hopi Nation in the American Southwest. Sharon’s friend, Derrick, is a potter who lives on the Hopi reservation and his people are in need of the following supplies: masks, disposable gloves (latex/nitrile/vinyl), hand sanitizer, toilet paper, tampons, deodorant, soap, and shampoo. They also need potable water. If you can help, please contact Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s a photo of Derrick and some of his work.

I have a Skutt 1018 kiln that has reached the end of its useful life. I bought it from Dennis/Northeast in 2009, he rebuilt it in 2014, and it has just gone…I believe the technical term is, kaflooey.So I bought a new kiln and I am offering this one to anyone who wants it for free. If someone is inclined to figure out what’s wrong and fix it to use as an electric kiln, that’s great. I someone wants to convert it to a raku kiln, also great. It has a vent system with a relatively new motor.
First come, first served. I live in Bennington, and it would need to be picked up. All socially distanced, of course. It shouldn’t be too hard to move it, as it comes apart and is easily reassembled. If interested, email me at email@example.com.
