Profile Information

What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
I have had classes on and off all my life. Went to university for Visual Arts in 2000, did independent ceramic studies, graduated in 2004. Spent two years as a potter's assistant for a Raku potter. Started my own studio in 2008. Bad timing with economic down turn, still had to work. I was a Gallery Coordinator for two more years. Did life stuff for several years, and finally moved to an island in 2016. Now successfully running my own studio, Mud Otter Pottery and volunteer teaching at local ceramics studio I helped set up.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I have two older Cress kilns. A 1 cu ft. and a 17"x17". I fire to cone 5 because that's what the test kiln can do (fries wires at cone 6, even when I upgraded the wiring), and I have become comfortable with it.
