What can I say? Somebody asked me to make them a couple camouflage pattern ashtrays. Give the people what they want.
This ashtray is made out of low-fire white earthenware clay. Hand painted with Amaco Velvet Underglazes with 3 coats of Duncan Clear Glaze over that and fired to cone 04.
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.
