What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
I have been seriously involved in ceramics since my University days both during my B.Ed.(Secondary) and B.F.A Honours (Undergraduate Thesis - Ceramics). Teachers were Robert Archambeau (emeritus) and Robert "Irish" Flynn. Both strong influences in my formative years in post-secondary education, prior to that I had only experienced a small amount clay art in junior high school where a sculpted a bust which was the model for a finished plaster piece. Fired ceramics were a foreign concept until my early adult admission to a post secondary education. Most of my work has been sculptural covering all aspects of making art in clay, but has always included vessel-like forms and function objects. Currently working on a series of ceramic pendants embellished with metal beading, wound copper wire, and knotted with silk rat tail cording.
