My name is Mark. I teach art at the local college, specializing in ceramics (pottery) and metal casting. I'm a 53 year old SWM looking for a similar age single female with similar interests and values. I own 76 acres of native short grass prairie and another 20 acres are what's left of my childhood homestead. I'm an ex-cotton farmer with loads of country skills who would like to return home and grow gardens, build greenhouses and make pottery! I need a good woman who would like to help or even contribute her own skills. I don't smoke. I rarely drink (need someone to drink something with I suppose), and no drugs!! I have no tattoos or piercings and I never, ever, ever, ever will! I love to read and study art history. I'm a builder. I make things and I like to make things grow. I'd like to share my life with a good woman. I've attached a few images of my pottery. I make ollas for irrigation in the garden. I also make regular pots for use on the dining table and in the kitchen. So, I have a photo of an olla, a 'lotus' bowl and a freshly made chip/salsa server. I guess I ought to put my own picture on here, too. There's an 'ugly mug' joke in there, somewhere, but it escapes me at the moment. Ha ha!
