On the Shelf

Process shots:

Mixing porcelain and a dark red sculpture body in this
wall tile. Hope they play nicely together in the firing!

New cone 6 ware, waiting for another coat of glaze
and a refire at cone 04.

New red stoneware pieces and a porcelain-stoneware
combination experiment loaded into the small electric kiln.

Impromptu wall installation of bisque wall pieces.

Wall piece, perfectly sized to dangle above the shelf.
I love the shafts of light peeking through the upper shelves.
Makes the right side of the piece look hand-like.

Greenware in process. What did ceramic artists use before foam and dry-cleaner plastic? Recycle these at your local clay studio.

      Hiello. Thank you. I start with a hollow form and shape it by paddling the form. Fine adjustments are made using a metal rib.
