Ceramic classes were started
and taught by Dorothy in the
basement of their store.
Eventually their daughter,
Claudia, took over the teaching
of the classes. They are now
held in the upstairs of this
building. The casting of
greenware was intensified
because of the increase in
demand by the public and the
people in her ceramic classes.
About once a month Harold and
Dorothy had to make a trip to
Minneapolis with a truck and U-Haul
to pick up liquid slip used in the
casting of greenware. After a while,
this became quite a chore for them
and their supplier. Harold then
started buying powered clay by the
railroad boxcar. To accomodate this
clay, a new warehouse was built in
back of their store. This warehouse
was also used to keep the extra
inventory of glazes and stains.
