I may not know art, but I know what I like -- and I like functional things that are beautiful.
I haven't formally studied pottery anywhere but by experience...and I'm still learning. I may not be really good at pottery, but I enjoy it! Since I work a day job for the benefits and to pay the bills, I can afford to take my time and just have fun throughout the addicting process of working with clay.
Rather than re-uploading pottery photos here, I will give you a link to my Photobucket gallery!
You can also see many works in progress (plus other random snapshots I take with my phone) at my Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nanspins
I'm also working on putting my clay and glaze reviews on my journal here: http://rubian77.livejournal.com/tag/pottery-related%20reviews
