    "I have been working in clay since 1966. -an industrial design major in a ceramics elective. I got hooked!. I love the fire, kilns, tactile surfaces and the comraderie of the folks who live with this humbling medium. My interests in Clay include dynamics of Kiln designs, Glaze Chemistry, Throwing, building kilns, and developing tools for new forms and textures, alternative firing processes and the World History of Ceramics. On a non-ceramics note I enjoy cooking and gardening, travel, museums observations of nature including wild horses and birds incorporating them into my art. Moved back to Montana where I'll be able to visit the wild horse herds in the Pryor Mountains.

  1. Before applying the paper lay patching, soak the bisque area with water. otherwise the moisture is sucked out of the patching material too quickly and it flakes off. use the paper clay recipe with Karo, vinegar, toilet paper and clay powder. Then re-bisque before glazing. Can be used for functional pieces. I repaired a student’s pitcher handle this way and is was fine.Handle was in 4 pieces.

  7. Yes. Good thing we get along!
  8. why do some people like myself and pres not have like buttons. This is irritating due the the competitive nature of the "likes" winning the day" and seems discriminatory against whoever has had their "like" buttons removed. This is what I don't like about the "winning the day" with likes in the first place. It makes it seem like elementary school stars . Although it is nice to know if someone does get anything out of one's comment. Marcia
  9. you do. I just hit it! I like this, Res. But you can never "win the day" without a like button.
  10. I didn't work in front of students except for demos. But showing slides of when giving background , images are helpful just as they are here. Marcia
  11. where's the like button?
  12. I am a teacher at heart and examples are nice for explaining. Marcia
  13. Thanks, Benzine. I like this technique and enjoy sitting and painting. That is a potter's easel used mostly by Spanish Majolica painters. I like it for working on round pots as it can be turned and also held at an angle. M
