I made another ash try. I had some more people ask for them. Talking over a few beers we came up with the idea of "ass trays" and ""ass buckets."
This one was actually just going to be a bucket with indentations for the butts on the rim but some how I came up with the idea of drilling holes on the sides so you can insert the burning cigarette. I thought it would be good for the outdoors. Seemed like a great idea.
This is 5 inches wide, 3 inches tall, decorated with Amaco majolica glazes 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.
