I have been playing in the mud since I was a toddler making mud-pies and was/am continually scolded for tracking mud/clay through the house. I have been throwing for five years now. I also love to garden (more mud!).
My favorite clay technique is throwing together different colors of clay to create a marbled affect.
My arch-nemesis is orange-peal texture on glazes that are supposed to be smooth (grrr).
My dream is to sell enough ceramics to make a living so I don't have to work in a stuffy office. (Not a very unique dream, I know... still one can hope ) I have a website here http://www.therogueartisans.com/store/c9/Kitchen.html and hope to try retail in the future.
I am eager to learn new clay techniques and to refine my skills.
