The Last Serge of Studio Madness before School begins!

 I like to post photos of the pieces when they are done in clay, because with the raku process, they don't all survive. That, and the techniques I use, create pieces that push the parameters of what clay can do!

Christmas Vacation in the studio



 It's not considered a proper vacation if I don't find time to work in my studio.
These pieces will have to wait until spring to be raku fired, and hopefully I'll be able to make more over the winter to join them.
