I've mentioned her before so forgive the duplication: Gabrielle Koch.

I have no idea how she does influence me, and I try not to 'copy' her work. But somewhere deep inside I'm sure her work has directed mine.

I have moved to setting the backdrop up outside. I like the colors I get with natural lighting and the lack of a truly awesome electric light set up left me with hotspots. I've been happy since making that move. I used to have to take dozens of shots under the electric lighting to get it right. now, I can set up the backdrop and bang out pieces for the web in short order.

I have a shimpo too. It was a gift and is lovingly covered in splashed of clay, glaze and wax. It is incredibly smooth.

I love the days when I get a CM in the mail. I also get a lot of info from the internet, including this lovely forum.

Unfortunately, I've never had any real formal training....just lots and lots of clay.

When I get stuck, I take a step back and then push ahead.

I would think Glaze fit might have something to do with it.

Maybe run a test tile in the next batch.

Good luck.
