Tortured by White? Switch to Brown!


After intense torture from my white clay...aka cone 6 porcelain...
I am switching back to yummy chewy gooey staining chocolate brown stoneware goodness for a while...
I have a new( new to me) sample of a sculpture clay in white coming to me.. any minute from Standard...
So... we will see if I like it... the idea of a gritty sandy clay is totally something I could sink my teeth into right now...
SO.. we shall see...
I was going to apply to some major craft shows and the deadlines are NOW....
So, rather than get pigeon holed into using the white that is KILLING ME...
I will let the deadlines pass(yet again) and see how I feel about the new clay and the the other color clays and when I am GOOD AND READY.... if it seems like a good show for me,
I will apply, or just approach the best representation for my work... but for now...
I am just working...

  4. Ooooh, what everyone else said: that clay looks good! And those pots are awesome. I love how you make functional pots with such dramatic texture that they look like sculptures.

    I'm new to your blog and work. (I came here through Pinterest.) I'll be reading from now on. :)
