  1. Hi folks, once again, no new questions in the pool, so I will muddle through with another QotW. . . . QotW: Do you use commercial products or do you mix your own? In my small studio, I could never imagine mixing my own clay bodies, it would just take up too much space. Much easier to just order what I want in clay from Standard Ceramics in Pittsburgh.

  4. From the album: newer work

    This is probably my favorite piece from the last firing. The yunomi was sprayed with a vitreous green slip and then a more refractory lavender slip.

  5. From the album: ceramic bottles

    A slab built ceramic bottle. Here the slabs were stamped then different slips were applied.
