As we follow the seasons, we look ahead and prepare for the next. Gathering pine needles and down fall, anticipating pit fires and pine needle weaving over the winter, I feel prepared.
I just returned from an alternative firing conference in Edina, MN. It was awesome! I can't wait to make more work and practice the new skills I learned. I am posting a few photos of the event. The first picture is a shot of how the pit was loaded with our pots. Picture #2 shows the pit soon after it was lit. We will wait a short while for the flames to die down before covering it up to smolder in the ashes until the next day. Picture #3 shows all of the fired pots the following day.
I have been asked numerous times in the past few months, if I have a website. The answer has been "It is in process".
Today, I decided I was ready to go live. I am still in the learning process, and do not feel that this is "it"; however, it is a good start. Keep checking back and watch it grow!
I took a Beginning Ceramics class in 2004, and I was hooked! Shortly thereafter, I was able to rent studio space in a local community studio. There I have access to kilns and equipment to do my work, not to mention being surrounded by the inspirational energy of other ceramic artists.
