What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Started doing pottery in 1998 or so, at Southwest School of Arts and Crafts in San Antonio, TX. I was drawn to pottery in my teens but never got the chance to do any until my 40's. I was a commercial artist and went back to school for a few degrees in anthropology, both of these experiences have colored my work. Ive been experimenting in
cone 6 since moving from San Antonio.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
For 2 years I've been working with cone 6 oxidation firing. Before that, I would fire to cone 10 reduction in the school kilns, then take my wares home and add cone 06 accents for a little pop of color. Cone 6 is the best of both worlds... hopefully.

It would be good to have some feedback and ask questions since I'm working in isolation. I like working on my own, but input is helpful.
