What color saturation do you like?
Orange Peel surface texture can happen in both soda and salt firings. If you desire to obtain orange peel surfaces select a clay body that contains a lot of silica sand, or add additional silica sand.
Why do you buy handmade pottery?
"My love of handmade pottery is driven by the knowledge of the 'making process.' I understand how much thought, design, labor, and especially heart and soul goes into creating a work in clay. The feeling of the spirit of the creator is in every piece that I own. Some pieces that I have collected are used daily, others are used for inspiration and observed for superior craftsmanship that I can strive for in my own work. Still other pieces surround me in every room of my home to fill those spaces with the spirit of the Makers. It seems to me that these pots have breath of their own and fill me with the joy of seeing beautiful handmade work every day."
I have a home/studio!
After many months of looking...we finally have a home to call our own in Milwaukee, WI. It's going to take a few more months to water proof my new basement studio, and to install tile flooring.
So, I am making the best of it, and turning my creative energy over to wood working. Finally using these maple boards and black walnut slab that were wedding gifts. I'm looking forward to sharing before and after photos.
