My clay story.

From the strong centering force of the potters wheel, to the zen art of glazing, it's my goal to bring the joy I feel as a maker, directly to you, packed tight in every particle of clay! I make sure my pots to feel good to the touch, function well for daily use, and are uniquely beautiful works of art, top to bottom, inside and out.
Clay and I are old friends. I first started handbuilding and throwing as a teenager, and quickly fell in love with the medium. I then studied Ceramics and Metalsmithing while recieving a foundation in Fine Arts at Maine College of Art at the turn of the century.
I’m currently a member and instructor at the Ithaca Clayschool, my local community studio. This is where my work is co-operatively fired, to cone 6, in an electric kiln.
Meanwhile, I do all of my throwing and hand building in my mini at home studio, with my plants, dogs, cat, two amazing teenagers and husband nearby.

Many Steps in the Ceramic Process * * * * * *
* Preparing the clay, wedging, slicing, weighing.
*Throwing on the wheel (many more steps within this one!)
*Drying time
*Trimming on the wheel, to refine from and give feet to bowls etc ( any carving, inscriptions, or add ons are done during this step, such as handles.)
*Drying time
*Bisque firing, loading and unloading of the electric kiln
*Glazing: I LOVE glazing! I use layering, resist techniques, dipping, pouring and hand painting during this phase.
*Glaze firing, loading and unloading of the electric kiln, this step is very exciting!

**All of my work here is made from durable stoneware clay, and, yes, it is dishwasher, oven and microwave safe! Feel free to contact me with questions and comments. Thank you for reading and visiting! Enjoy today- Gina Inzinna
