Profile Information

What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
On and off for past 20 years starting out making base relief tiles for my kitchen and other people's kitchen.. did most low fire and never likely it much. Tried cone 10 and that was not for me. I love throwing but the glazing is my brick wall.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I learned spraying glaze onto greenware in a class and am about to embark on this journey. I want to make casseroles and pitchers and mugs etc. and just generally enjoy the creative process and doing something with my hands.

I see the Steven Hill influence on your work. Did it come direct from him or an intermediary?

(No shame there, Steven has a profound influence on many of us here at C6P)  :-)

Yes, please post some pictures. I would love to see what you have been doing in your studio. Basically the friends list is passive. For me its a short cut to finding someone I want to say hi to. Other than that, you don't receive a ton of comments like in Facebook.

Hi Brenda!!!!

      I hope you are doing well. I've been busy with work and have had limited time with my pottery, but hope that will improve. How are your projects going?
