KPOV Bend Oregon Community Radio

I've had the distinct honor to provide many mugs to our local community radio station, KPOV, in Bend, Oregon over the past nine or ten years for pledge drive gifts. I've lost track of how many I have donated. It's got to be well north of 150 by now and it's one of the best causes I feel that my small business can donate to.

We are blessed in Bend to have this wonderful resource which...

Mug Revolution had a blog before this one!

Mug Revolution had a blog before this one!

I've been a very sporadic blogger since 2008. When this new site launched in March 2016, we decided to keep the old blog separate from this one. If you would like to peruse some of the old blog, by all means take a look.  My favorite posts are on giving Kathleen Edwards a mug, a writeup on my experiences with Inayoshi Osamu when he visited my town and gave a workshop (which became the basis for an article I wrote that was published in the September 2014 issue of Ceramics Monthly), and a technical article I wrote about rebuilding my...
