In Topic: What Part Of The Process Satisfies You Most?

15 October 2014 - 06:50 PM

I can't say there are are many parts of handling clay that I don't like. Love the feel of clay flowing through my fingers & becoming an object, hand building sends me into a zone of quiet & then making glazes & seeing those fantastic results when I open the kiln. Ok so not always fantastic but room for improvement & try again.

Hi, I tell my students to start clean up 15 minutes before the end of class & not let them begin another project just before that time. The late starters should be responsible for catching up on their own.

In Topic: What Do You Do To Energise Yourself In The Studio?

Doing something different. Yesterday a couple of friends came over & we did a raku firing with my old electric kiln. We had awesome results. A very satisfying day. It was only the second time I have done this. It worked much better with 3 people with quick opening & closing of the kiln kept it nice & hot.

In Topic: How Would You Describe Your Current Studio Location. Suburban Garage, Urban B...

Basement used to be bedroom, wood shelving around the walls, 2 wheels beside the shelves, wedging table & pug mill all with just enough room. Sink is out side the studio across from the furnace, on the long wall is washer/dryer then glazing shelves with glazes in pails along the floor & under the shelves & on rollers just room enough to squeeze by another person while glazing. The kiln is in the garage. Fire to cone 6/7.
I have a window.

In Topic: Do You Have Any Big Goals For This Fall's Production?

Hi Denise, working with disabilities is difficult but possible. Work a little at a time. Do some hand building to strengthen those muscles you haven't been using on clay for a time.
My new floor is now in & equipment & stuff put back clean so now back to work. I just got a big order to complete ASAP. I'm planning on getting at least half thrown & trimmed before a fall break.
