Summer Work 2010

This is the 1st summer in a few years that I have not taught. I have taken the extra time to do some new work. These photo's are form a Raku and pit fire conducted on my property on July 31st. I was so thankful for finally a break in this summers heat. Joe Brenman , Ellen Tiberino and I had a great day.

I tried a new technique called Obvara. The pot is taken out of the kiln and plunged into a yeast solution. Its pretty radical and my bowl broke a little bit. Next time I will be sure to use a grogged clay body.

New work

I have been working with the paper pulp and am excited with the results. The process is casting paper pulp into clay molds. I love that I can reuse the molds to create many possibilities with the cast. These are some of the first ones. They are painted with watercolor. I am calling the series"Nature and Geometry"
