Ground Breaking

Reuse, recycle, reduce. We hear these ideas all the time and I tend to think they are good ones. It comes in especially great when someone gives me an old kiln.  That is exactly what happened when the electric kiln that we used for cone 6 glaze firing gave up the ghost at Callanwolde. It’s a good size kiln, much bigger than my electric kiln but I’m not interested in rewiring this one. You may remember I did that with my electric kiln when I installed the kiln sitter (you can read about that here) which I got from another free kiln.

My plan for this kiln is to make it a reduction kiln since that is the look I like best for my pots. I am even considering adding a stoke hole so I can feed some small piece of wood into the kiln for some ash and wood effects.

ARTucker 2015 This Friday and Saturday

This past spring my friend and brilliant collage artist Patty Young organized ARTucker at the Tucker Rec Center. The idea was to make a show of some terrific art, set the show price to be affordable for the artists and bring the community together. She was wildly successful as evidenced by the outcry from artists and patrons alike to repeat the event in the Fall. I'm very proud to say that I am fortunate enough to be a part of this event once again.

I'll be doing demos, selling my pottery and talking to folks about ceramics classes at the rec center. Maybe I'll even pick up another student or two.

The event is held inside the rec center so you can enjoy the art no matter the weather. Come on by and see what local artists are creating.  We will be there Friday Nov 6, 2015 from 6pm - 9pm, and Saturday Nov 7, 2015 from 10am - 6pm.
