Firing takes patience

More pots waiting to be fired: I am attempting two sets of cereal bowls. And all the while I am STILL waiting for my mugs and vases to come out of the bisque fire. Unfortunately my studio has an extreme wait time for firing and I have now been waiting since the 2nd of the month for those items to come out of the kiln. These new items will have to wait a possible long while to be fired, so I guess Ill just keep throwing in the mean time.

Love you can eat

Though very small our first miniature crop is here! They are delicious, ripe and lovely, and will make for a nice snack with Reed's homemade hummas. This is quite thrilling.

These will definitely be sketched and hopefully applied to something ceramic. Thanks to Reed..

Grow Love

Reed and I have started a small garden in the front yard of our Union Street apartment. We are growing a bunch of things some of which were here when we arrived and others that we added. We also have a small herb garden with basil (my favorite), parsley, peppermint, lemon balm and two tomato plants. This is our very first time growing vegetables and we're loving it. I call these tomatoes our babies.

Clay Born

This portion of the process might be the most satisfying. I hope some day it will be the end result that gives me that feeling. Seeing that I have created a beautiful, usable object from an unshaped slab of clay is amazing. My ability to make sets have improved a great deal in the last few months as did my handles.


My first posting of my ceramics in process. Throwing clay could quite possibly be my favorite thing in the world. It's waiting for it to be fired that makes me crazy and then the glazing that can either make or break the piece.
