Just the Facts

Red and white earthenware

Primary forming method
Handbuilt-a combination of modeling, carving, filing,
coiling, and some press molding. To form adjunct elements, I usually crochet,
knit or sew various fibers.

Favorite surface treatment
I am addicted to burnishing leather-hard forms, the wackiness of commercial
glazes, and crocheting fibrous elements onto pieces post-firing.

Primary firing method
Cone 06-04 electric

Favorite tool
A sense of humor. Or, in the gift shop of the Dinosaur
Museum in Thermopolis, Wyoming, I found this polished black rock in the shape
of a heart. It is simply perfect for hours and hours of burnishing love. I also
heart the jeweler’s files and altered butter knife given to me by friends.

Most-used piece of equipment
My sound system
