I just finished firing 75 shino glazed tea bowls. What a success! In addition to the 75 tea bowls, I also fired 2 coffee mugs (gifts for friends) and about 50 test tiles of more shino glaze recipes. I kept about 60 and took the hammer to the others.
Took my first clay classes at Bemidji State University in 1989. In 2002, after a long break, I started more pottery classes at Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI.
I do not have one area of interest, but that isn't to say I am unfocused. I enjoy making everything from coffee mugs to trompe l' oeil. I work with highfire stoneware, and low fire earthenware. I'm just clay crazy.
