and on and on...

well well well...
I like the tearing but I also like the refining so I'm working to bring BOTH into the work,
2 shots shown... also- I've been using standard 365... which i like BUT I think 213 is better for my twists and turns... less CRACKING.... so I went to ceramic supply and loaded up!
I still like 365 for exposed porcelain and the jewelry... it fires out smoother...... but there are different issues involved...
I'll keep y'all posted.(you'd think i live in the south with that comment... not grey day NEW JERSEY!)


  1. Judi, I really love the new work! I'd love to hang out and watch you work---amazing!

  2. ginny... you can hang out with me any time!!!!!but i don't think you're near by!

  3. Judi, I really like what you are doing here. The one on the right is exquisite! I can't wait to see it finished!

  4. thanks a bunch ellen...!!!

  5. Judi
    Love your new work !!!
    As a "beginning" potter (kilned my first pot exactly a year ago today) i've never come across the expression (or technique) "ripping and tearing" . . . .
    Would you share about the process involved?
    It's pretty impressive judging by your work.

  6. Chae... I rip and tear and reposition the clay... it's a nightmare but I can never leave a perfect form alone...I wouldn't call it a specific technique... just sort of what I do... but then I refined it into cutting instead and controlling it more... I still like the ripping but it tends to be more effective for an art object vs a functional piece... and so I (in fact) remain ripped and torn!!!!

  8. Lovely! The circular, fluid style brings motion of water to mind.

    You are growing in such a sculptural manner.
