I am a maker - of things. It doesn't really matter what as long as I can create something - a pair of earrings from beads found years ago in a little, out-of-the way shop or a scarf with some of that snazzy yarn I just couldn't resist, a pie or batch of cookies or a new recipe that needed to be tested.
My first love is, and always has been, clay - locating local clays, testing new recipes for the clay and glazes - trying a new technique or just tweaking an old one. It's all good - especially when the kiln is unloaded with pots that sing heaven's songs.
As one who works primarily in earthenware, my clays and glazes are tested for compatibility and your well-being before any are put into use. Most of my components are mixed by me, but I do occasionally use commercial clay or glazes and only those that are deemed food-safe…
