    Neil, when I was in Art school, some guys went to the Beaux Arts Ball as a fart. rolling around on the floor wrapped up in a huge black piece of plastic and throwing out sulphur bombs. It was pretty funny. Marcia

    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
  5. 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!

  10. 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
  11. Creating A Workshop

    Hi Chad, Your website is mentioned in the Revistas Ceramicas article about my work in Obvara. Good luck with your workshop. Marcia
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. on standby to quickly fire some saggers tomorrow weather permitting. Too cold today. Snowed last night.
