  1. Sad to hear that the world of ceramics is not exempt from it predators :(. Have a look at @softearth.ceramics on instagram to read about her tragic experience being a potter's apprentice in Copenhagen

      That is very true. I think it is important to be aware those people exist though. But yes, there are thankfully a lot of other awesome people in the community!

  2. Finally, going to take the plunge and buy my first kiln.  I am feeling a little scared....I have some  experience firing someone else's kiln...but it has been a few years.  

    My space in the basement is all wired, got a great vent area....the house had an old oil furnace removed 30- 30 years ago, but the chimney still has the vent and the opening is close to where the kiln is going.

  3. Updated my website, and will try to take photos of my new pieces soon :) 

  4. Today the replacement lid with a counter weight came. Tomorrow my helpers come to lift the kiln and with out stands. And today I laid the foundation for my large raku kiln with a pulley system. Soon I'll be making big pots again. Very happy we have warm weather this week.I need to build the raku kiln in place so the pulleys and attachments to the chamber line up. Friday we had this. 6.5" of heavy wet snow. Many tree branches snapped. Today it was perfect for working outside.

  6. People have asked me about my Hidden Mask series, so I have inserted some comments on the individual pics in the gallery. I have been doing face-pressed pseudo masks for many years. This particular series is about "honoring the survivor", whether that be metaphorical or literal.

      I saw your comments on your gallery, it looks like they are all quite deeply personal and emotional pieces, it's very moving, thank you for sharing

  7. Got back Thursday night from my La Meridiana workshop in Italy and visits to Florence and Certaldo Alto before the class and Faenza, Ravenna and Venice after the class. I sprained my ankle first day of the workshop, but it didn't interfere with my teaching, thankfully.

    I wil try to get my photos downsized so I can post a few.

      That's what is amazing with ceramics, you can do it anywhere, so it works really well with me wanting to explore the world :) Thank you I'm really looking forward to that!

  13. Did a 5 days workshop with Anima Roos, learning printing techniques on ceramics, and my head is full of possibilities! Can't wait to try them all again

  14. Yay, I went to my first craft market today. My wife and I had a great time. There was only about 15 vendors, but I was the only potter. I sold almost everything and even got some commissions. I want to thank you all, for your kindness, acceptance and support. Along with all your great advice I was able to feel confident that I could do this. It wasn't about the money, but it was ok, but just knowing that I have friendships that care about me, makes me a millionair. I couldn't have don...
