What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
been throwing and hand-building for decades, while working full time. productivity low but desire high. have work in several local galleries and the pottery is now self-supporting. i am a "functional" potter whose handbuilt pieces sre arty enough. just for fun...i am going to a workshop with Simon Leach this weekend. Can't wait.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I was in a guild for years and cone 10 gas firing. can never beat, however the cone 5-6 glazes for stoneware are becoming amazing. they are breaking just like u would want them to.
