Fabulous firing!

In mid-September, Jennifer Dinkelmeyer and I pulled back the door on her little Bailey kiln, chock-full of my work, revealing one of the most beautifully fired array of work that I can recall. Jennifer and I were present during the firing, a few days earlier, but it was all Jennifer’s firing. THANKS, Jennifer! ALL! the […]

Mystery glaze?

In the previous post, the second photo, taken at the 2015 Alfred workshop, includes several pots of mine: a tall jar, a platter and three bowls. Those bowls are also pictured immediately below: The bowls’ liner glaze is a “teadust” glaze, and if you squint really hard, you can detect subtle hints of green “dust” […]

Old pots, new pics

Every once in a while, nice pots — like the two below — get lost in the shuffle and only very belatedly make it to celluloid. This small — 15″ X 15″ — platter with Gold Shino glaze and black slip designs, dates to June 2015 at Alfred, New York, during the month-long workshop I […]

Back to white

For the first time in years — 10? 12? — I’ve begun dabbling again with white clay, both stoneware and porcelain. In the 2000s, I worked with the combination of white stoneware and Oribe glaze while wood-firing at Baltimore Clayworks. Two resulting pieces have been inseparable from me ever since.

New batch of mugs delivered to Vine

Yesterday, I delivered several dozen new mugs to my home cafe away from home, Vine Sourdough Bakery and cafe, in Gainesville. Most of the mugs are from late 2017 and early 2018 firings, though a few were fired as far back as 2015. I’ll now sit back at Vine for a few weeks and enjoy […]
