    I made four. .They are small, 6" But now I want to make larger ones like 12-18". I was firing in my tiny demo kiln. Second opportunity to fire I used my barrel kiln and fired 3 saggars. Glad you're warm. I have a huge pile of snow next to my kiln and it just keeps getting bigger. I scrape the snow away when a warm day looks promising. Marcia

    I am enjoying making marks on clay just because it makes me wonder at what chemicals, organic material, masking, baffling will to do a surface. No hidden agenda. Just keeping myself amused. Some of today's amusement. I am particularly enthralled with seaweed. Marcia
  3. Callie, great article for a new age of market strategy. Well done. Marcia

      Looks like it was just hewn and polished, fresh from the quarry. One of the more exceptional examples of minimalism I have seen. Well done!

  8. I met him at the Majolica conference in Toronto in '98 at the Gardner Museum . I have always admired his work. Glad he is still among us (on earth). Great article and really wonderful examples of his work. Thanks for posting. Every time I see an older potter's name in the subject, I brace myself for an obit. Its an age thing, I know. I have lost quite a few older friends. Marcia

    Hi Chad, Your website is mentioned in the Revistas Ceramicas article about my work in Obvara. Good luck with your workshop. Marcia
  10. Carving into clay

    I have a sweet little set of carving tools about 4 inches long- various shaping chisels. I work when leather hard. To avoid flaking, spray a little water on the immediate area. Just enough to rehydrate. Carving can be tedious, but very absorbing and rewarding by the results. Enjoy. Marcia
  11. I am a happy old person. Never put it in those terms but I like them. Define elderly.. not sure I'm there yet. Marcia
  12. on standby to quickly fire some saggers tomorrow weather permitting. Too cold today. Snowed last night.

  14. it depends on your body. I made my throwing seat with a slanted seat to reduce stress on the lumbar.I like it. If you don't have an adjustable wheel , you can put it in brick or something to get it right for you or raise/lower your seat. I like the angled seat idea and I think it works.I copied the benches Pietro Madelena designed for La Meridiana. ,. will try to post a pic of my bench to show the slant. Marcia
