SEATTLE — Saltstone Ceramics in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood is more than just a gallery of beautiful pieces crafted by top-notch artists. It's also a place where beginners like KING 5 Evening's Saint, Kim, Michael and Jim can try their hand at the fine and sometimes fickle process of transforming clay into a durable masterpiece.
