Clay and Dough and Pizza

After reading the title you might think that this is a blog post about how to make money from pottery and pizza. It's not but I'm sure it's possible. It's about homemade ravioli and pizza dough and the similarities I've been thinking about recently. It all started with Janet making homemade ravioli, I was hanging out in the kitchen "helping" by commenting about using the pasta machine as a slab roller and stuff like that. But when the top and the bottom of the ravioli was wet and then joined I started really thinking about the correlations between clay and dough. They really do have lots of similar characteristics. Of course I remember Play-doh from when I was a kid but I'm trying to think of this in more artistic terms. I'm also thinking about the direction I'm going in FUNctional pottery and wonder how I can integrate the two. I'm not sure what that will end up becoming, if anything but I'd love to know your thoughts and ideas.
I did use this knowledge to create a really pretty pizza.

  1. I once wondered if I could use a pasta machine for clay, probably not strong enough, what do you think?

  2. I'm pretty sure ours is not strong enough for stoneware, maybe porcelain but I think I'd get in big trouble if I tried it.

  3. Yes, you would get in big trouble! I'm all about supporting your art, but there are limits! :-)
    You make a mean pizza though - yummy!!

  4. tis a pretty pizza indeed! I think some people have used pasta machines with clay :)
