What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
I started as a beginner student in 2002, hired to teach classes in 2007 and then moved on to own my own studio in 2013 with expansion in 2015.The first time I touched the clay during my beginners class I new I would be hooked! Pottery has brought a wonderful therapeutic touch to my life. I love to pot and enjoy all aspect of the process of potting and glazing whether it is hand building,wheel throwing or teaching students.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I currently fire in my own studio with electric kilns. I fire student work and my own work. I have about ten glaze buckets all the time. I mix and test various glazes as I become interested. I usually fire to cone 6, but recently have purchased a new kiln and will be firing to hotter temperatures.
