  1. Collaborative Work

    thank you for showing your experience--you must all have had a wonderful time
  2. Engobe And Glaze

    i agree--beautiful finish!
  3. California Wildflowers potbelly mug in teal

    you have your own style--they are lovely bright happy pots--and doesn't nature put all her colors together without worrying !
  4. go for it joseph -- you can commute every day so no hotel expense! have a friend who traveled almost three hours each morning so she could manage a wood firing workshop. listen to old lady.
  5. John After finally managing to read through the papers describing in great detail the Japanese Tea Ceremony (and I will say it did take a very long time!), I will never feel quite the same when I pour the boiling water over my tea bags or pop it into the micro wave. Such a wonderful world we share--many thanks. Ginny
  6. John I have just returned from visiting your exhibit at Thayer. I am a fortunate one who lives only a twenty minute drive away and had been looking forward to it. I have not words to describe it--I went by myself and was the only one in the gallery ( it was around noon) which made it perfect. All I had to do is look and absorb for as long as I chose -- all these beautiful jewels -- the gold lining sure surprised me! So many looked as though you had just plucked them from the earth as they were growing there! Thank you for the once in a lifetime opportunity. sincerely Ginny

    Cavy So good to see you again--miss all your beautiful work and think of you often. Best wishes in your new work--certainly looks awesome to me!
  8. Attic Studio?

    i suppose no different than carrying buckets of water down to my cellar and back up to dump outside--been doing it for almost 30 years--we potters make do!
  9. what a clever idea! I still have my 50-year old machine and it is like new. Made clothes for myself, my children and quilts for my grandchildren and so much more. then i found pottery ...maybe will try a few of these for fun--thanks mark.
  10. loved reading about your north country fair--thank you--ginny
  11. Besides throwing so well, I love the very tiny specks that give it more life than just a plain white and my glazes look better on this clay than on any other that I have used ( and there were very many that I tried over the years). I make simple utilitarian pots and I am not good at drawing or painting so I like the few glazes I use to give them appeal. Good luck with your search. Ginny
  12. Nancy I liked it at first but then handles would crack where they were joined, round bowls would come out oval, but the most annoying was pieces of the foot ring or flat bottom would stick to the shelf--all during the glaze firing. Did not stay with that long! I very much like Laguna #55. I have used it often over the years and is the only one I use now. I like using a clay that I don't have to be fussing with...but I always make sure it is very dry....the extra time is so worth it. Ginny
