This is another pot that I fired last weekend. I'm real happy with the horse hair markings.
I applied terra sigalatta to this pot when it was leather hard and then buffed it to a high sheen. I bisque-fired this to cone 04, which was too hot, but I was filling my kiln with 04 bisque pieces and this one filled up the kiln.
The result of the higher heat was the loss of some of the sheen of the burnishing but I'm still happy with the results.
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.
