Last night, I delivered work to Lakeland Community College in Kirtland OH. for the "from Woman VI Show". These organic porcelain shapes are hand built and bisque fired to ^ 05 then glazed with many layers and fired to ^10. The current clay I am using is Jack Troy Porcelain from Standard Ceramics in Pittsburgh PA. I make most of the glazes I use. There may be one or two underglazes that I purchase and use from time to time. I am grateful for the opportunity to make work for this current exhibition.
Many thanks to the gallery director Mary Urbas and the College for the continued support given to the ARTS. As a graduate of Lakeland Community College and previous member of the Adjunct Faculty I am very much in debt to the worldly knowledge gained at this institution. Thank you George Somogyi, my first educator in the ARTS. You hooked me! I wish you were still around to enjoy the growth of your students.
