It is hard to believe that it has been nine months since my last post. When I started blogging I was sure that I would blog at least twice a month. I am often questioning my commitments as to where my time goes.
As a clay artist, I am back in the saddle again. After recovering for about three years from the outdoor street fair circuit which I used as venues to show and sell my clay work, I am creating other venues to continue my clay work. It is a long process to figure out what works and what does not work.
I will close with an artist statement I wrote back on February 25, 2009.
I make clay objects. Functional, whimsical and decorative objects, to use enjoy and collect. The fluid clay is shaped pulled and pushed using hands and potters wheel to become the object. Using glaze , brush and liquid wax, the surface of the objects transfer into a sheet of patterned glass when fired. The objects are high fired to cone ten. Porcelain is the clay most used but I do work with other clays and firing ranges from time to time.
