What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Started ceramics in college, as a minor. Continued 3-d creations throughout my adult life in one way or another. Started taking ceramic classes again at the Wayne Art Center, and ended up running their ceramic department for 6+years. During that time, I showed my pieces in art exhibits, and attended classes and seminars, still always pursuing my own voice in ceramics.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I am now in my first year as a multi-media business. My partner and I have started a website and are traveling to various art fests and sales. Our jewelry is created from ceramic beads and other pieces of pottery we make. We do a line of tapas plates, mugs and bowls. Other ceramic pots and vessels round out the mix. I fire to cone 6, using mostly celadon glazes. Many of our pieces include decals of original artwork, which gets fired at cone 06 (as a third fire).
