Glazing the nearly completed product, take a look at the listing for a before and after firing.
Big load for a glaze firing, about half of a kiln load just for the store!

About

Clay is a fascinating material. Unlike other materials I have worked with in my science and engineering background, it reacts in such palpable and tactile ways. It bends to your touch, and flows when pressured. Even the platelets in our blood resemble the microstructure of clay.

I have found an unexpected home in ceramics since leaving an engineering career. This work provides a calm that I have not felt in any other work, and the process and product are both profoundly human. The centering focuses the mind and breath and the creation gives an outstanding reward. It is a priviledge to be able to create with my hands a form that will be used by others for a long time to come.

A lot of us search for purpose and meaning and for me it is this, right now.
