Q&A With This Artist
A: All of my pieces are handmade, thrown on a potters wheel and made with stoneware. The pieces go through several firing processes before being completed.
A: Clay is an exciting material and it never stops teaching me new things. It's versatility lends itself to so many applications; throwing on the wheel is just what drew me in and what I do best with it. The longer you have a relationship with clay, the more your intuition grows with it, making it fun and easy to be around, just like a good relationship with a person.
A: There is a great attention to detail with every piece, every piece is carefully crafted and feels great in hand.
A: The medium of clay favors community. A busy ceramics studio offers something for everyone. Plenty of supplies and materials. Tools and glazes to share. Inspiration for beginners: students shelves, lined with wares to aspire to. Classes that transcend language, where an Asian grandmother doesn't need to know English to take a class and play with dirt. It's innate in all of us and we can share it through just being together and setting aside the time to do it.
