    Functional decorative pottery. I hate house work; one day I will be able to afford to pay someone to do it for me.
  1. The masks evolved into Woods People Vases.
  2. Clay is alkali; rubbing vinegar into your hands after throwing neutralizes and balances your skin's PH level. Olive oil is an excellent moisturizer. I put 50/50 vinegar and oil in a squirt bottle, shake it up and apply it after every throwing session. Wonderful stuff. There is also a product by Shiseido called Hadasui Skin and Body Lotion that you can get at TNT Market - a Chinese grocery chain, or stores carrying Japanese products.
  3. I've been potting for 10 years or so mostly functional ware. Pots that are sturdy for everyday use, pots that look great on the counter or mantle. I fire electric cone 6 and especially like fake ash glazes; the way they run rivulets down the pots. I do fumed raku in a kiln I built myself. The mentor program connected me with Mark Cortright. He is a terrific teacher; I am ever so grateful.
