THIS PAGE IS ABOUT MY CURRENT PASSION – CERAMICS.

In March 2016 I enrolled in a 6 week beginner wheel class and I have never looked back! I record my progress on this page mainly for my friend Cara who inspired this blog, but also for anyone who might be interested in pottery and the creative process.

There’s a surface treatment I’ve been playing with since I started working in clay.  The horizontal grooves remind me of wood grain or tire tracks in the snow. Recently I had the idea to use beeswax as an inlay, here is a bowl I tried it on.

I’ve also been playing with chrome green slip, layering it under transparent turquoise or milky white glazes. This vase is one of my favorite accidents.

I will also be working with this combination more.

I’m currently working on vases, tea cups, coffee bowls, and salve jars for my newest Tree Medicine.

Some Salve jars drying.

Here is a coffee bowl waiting for its first firing.

And here is a finished one.
