If you were a clay body, what would you be? Clay artists often talk about a clay bodies by giving them characteristics that people possess. Is your clay fussy? Is it dependable or reliable? Is your clay earthy? Sensual? Describe yourself as a clay body and explain why. – Lori Leary, Potters Council Board Member 2013

What aspect of clay work gives you the most pleasure?
One of the reasons I love working with clay is because there are so many different facets to it. But if I had to pin it down to one area, it would be forming, be it throwing or hand-building. How about you?- Lori Leary Potters Council Board Member 2013
