  1. I sign my initials with an old stick pen. My last name is 3 letters 2 small 1 cap so is different. I made a stamp but just singing on leather hard is easier. I had a ring with my family coat of arms & initials, but it wore out. Joy

  5. While throwing I wear yoga pants & t shirts with a cloth over my left knee to wipe my hands. These clothes take very little room in the darks load. When I trim & hand build attachments I usually put an apron on as I normally don't get dirty at that time. I wear runners & sometimes sandles. I always change footwear when I leave the studio as it's in the basement. I use miracle clothes as they wash out quickly after each use. Joy
  6. We have a nasty squirrel the neighbourhood has named red. She taunts my dog by coming down the tree just to tease & runs back up. I get my exercise trying to catch my dog to stop the barking early in the am. We have other squirrels, deer, sometimes raccoons & lots of birds. We live near the edge of the city. Joy
  7. I used to only use ram's head then started doing spiral with some cut & slam. On fresh clay I wake it up patting & rolling on the work bench & shape with my hands to make a ball. I throw both stoneware & porcelain. Joy

  13. I first became interested in art at 4yrs old. I saw a film of a potter & couldn't wait to dig up some clay to work with. My Dad was always supportive. In 2nd grade I was selected to take art classes (only 2 students in each school were selected). In grade 4 my teacher entered my paintings in the exhibition & I won 2nd & 3rd prize. Life then changed with the loss of my parent & I no longer had access to the materials or classes. My pottery career didn't begin until I was 20 & I was determined that nobody was going to make me stop when I finally reached my goal of becoming a potter. I've worn many hats in between but kept going back to pottery.
