I have always been working in some sort of art. Early on it was drawing. Then there was fiber arts for many, many years. So about 15 years years ago, I took a few classes and then started working in clay whenever I could at an area community school. Working in clay has become my passion. I enjoy the feel of it, the way a lump of clay can come to life, and the surprise of what come out of the kiln...good or bad.
Now, it is time for me to build my own studio and work on my own. So, I was so glad to find this community.
For the past twenty years, my full time profession is that of restoring all manner of "fired dirt". I restore broken pottery, porcelain and ceramic objects. I put back together all sorts of broken messes. It has been a wonderful opportunity to study the construction and glazes of many, many styles, eras or clay bodies. But I am confined by replicating what should be there if it missing or inpainting any of the repaired areas. (If you are interested, my web site for this is www.gustens.com ).
