My technique of altering cylinder shapes into a sea sponge inspired shape has become a favorite of mine. The glaze is cohen red that became blue in the reduction firing.
I’ve been working with ceramics for about three years now. I started with a first time potter class at Lillstreet Art Center and have been there ever since. They are right off the Montrose Brown Line, have a great community, and offer open studio time. When I first started throwing on the wheel, everything I made either broke or turned out to only be a few inches tall. After about six months, I finally started to get it. Like an instrument, throwing on the wheel requires a lot of touch sense so it takes a bit of time to get used to. It’s a great art form and I look forward to continue throwing.
