Do you prefer to work in your studio alone, or in a communal studio? | July 6, 2012

Do you prefer to work in your studio alone, or in a communal studio?
In which circumstance do you feel more productive? Happier?


I would probably get more work done by myself, but truth be told, I actually like to have people around.
Which is probably also why I continue teaching, while also working in the university studio. How about you?

Do you have a favorite clay body? | June 12, 2012

13 June 2012 - 07:33 AM

Do you have a favorite clay body? Stoneware (light or dark), porcelain, terra cotta? Do you work with more than one clay body? Why did you choose the particular clay you use?

I work with two bodies, one that I make and one that I buy. I use stoneware for most of my work, but every now and then I want porcelain for its wonderful qualities (despite its difficulties); I buy it.
