What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
My first experience with clay was in 2006 during 3D Sculpture and 3D Design classes at Gaston College. I was HOOKED!!! I have continued at Gaston doing independent studies, now under Barbara Chadwick and previously under Paul Smith. Being an active member of the Southern Art Society permits me to have studio usage at the Train Track Pottery Shack in King Mountain, NC. I consider myself a ceramist, working primarily with cone 6 porcelain "Standard 365". I have recently begun to work with a more translucent porcelain. I am using only commercial glazes at this time, but would like to experiment making my own glazes.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
My work is frequently accepted in local juried fine art shows. In 2014, I participated in my first Earth and Fire Pottery Fair. One of my goals is to one day have a home ceramic studio with a Skutt electric kiln.
