My Process

 

I enjoy throwing and handbuilding with a cone6 white clay body. Each piece is decorated with brown and white slip when the clay is at a leather hard stage. After the first bisque firing, I hand paint each piece using black, white, and gray undergalze. Each piece is finished with a food safe, clear glossy glaze and is fired to cone6 in an electric kiln. My inspiration comes from long walks in local cemeteries where I admire so many beautiful textures, shapes, and plants.
