Horse Hair + Emu Feather and Sulfuric Acid
I love how hands on Raku and horsehair is. Not only do I connect with my ancestral potters, my inner pyro is quite satisfied.

Firerose Goddess

Firerose Goddess
This is my best mug to date. The back has carvings, but it was impossible to photograph...well, for ME it was, haha!
It probably holds 20oz, so it's a good size.
I wanted to make a new mythology about how flowers grow... :)
Terracotta with white slip and greenware-applied underglaze, fired to ^03.


Green geometric cup

Green geometric cup
I love all the varied shapes a good mug comes in. The shape is my current favorite. It works well to separate the textured areas from the geometric sgraffito in the bottom. It has a pulled handle and commercial glazes and was fired to cone 6 electric.

Mr. Shrike's Head
The final result of my first animal head sculpture. :) I'm quite pleased with how this turned out--as you can imagine, I was sweating when this piece was in the kiln!! My fella, its intended and current owner, was extremely happy when he got it for Christmas. <3

Sculpted from Clay Art Center (of Tacoma)'s Xtra White lowfire earthenware, painted with Amaco, Mayco, Duncan, and Clay Art Center underglaze, fired to ^03.


Longquan celadon

Longquan celadon
My friend hosted a exhibition for this artist in a gallery in Fremont, this set was a christmass gift to me last year from the show. We were able to have several dinners and spend time with the artist and his family, next time I'm in Longquan I hope to visit his studio... it a very long 7 hour drive from Shanghai and my friend who was driving was the worst driver in the world making it seem like 24 hours. His driving was so bad I risked going to jail and drove most of the way home myself. The food there was... rural, a lot of it intense for my western pallet, but the roasted Cicada beetle were delicious.

Wood Duck Mug

Wood Duck Mug
A wood duck mug made as a gift for a lady's husband for Xmas.
I cannot believe how wonderfully bright these colors turned out! The terracotta didn't alter the underglaze at all. Soooo happy with this chubby lil' guy!

Seward terracotta, Clay Art Center underglaze, Mayco underglaze, Mason Stain
Fired to ^03.

Cats Drinking Porcelain

Cats Drinking Porcelain
I'm not really a cat person, but I chose to work with the basic shape because cats are far less variable in form than dogs and are thus more universally recognized, if that makes any sense. These images are developed using cut-out resists, colored slips, and sgraffito on porcelain.

House Wine 2

House Wine 2
This is the second "House Wine" vessel that I made. This time, underglaze transfers were added in an effort to build more depth to the surface. These are fun to make but seem to require a good bit of time on the workbench.

This one is headed for a November show.
