If I was hard pressed to only have 8 pottery tools to use there are the ones I would pick. I have them segregated into two categories. Tools for throwing on the potter's wheel, and tools for carving. Sure I have a few other ones for example a bigger rib for making platters or a clothes pin for making lids...but these are my constant I use every day in the studio tools.
All the tools above are clickable links to the tools for sale at ClayKing.com. I highly recommend buying supplies from them. They work really hard to have competitive prices, and have a lot of supplies available from one location.

Did you know that I travel to teach workshops?
I wanted to share some of the reviews from my most recent soda firing workshop I taught at Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA. This was a 5 day long workshop.
Feel free to reach out for more soda firing workshop opportunities in the future. My next workshop will be in Minot, North Dakota in October, and stay tuned for more opportunities to work with me in the future.

"Essential Earth: Invitational Ceramics Exhibition" at the Wayne Art Center
This spring filled with amazing new opportunities in ceramics. So much to be grateful for! It was such an honor to be invited into "Essential Earth," and to exhibit along side of really amazing established and emerging artists.
Cannot forget to mention the the exhibition "Ceramic Innovations" an equally amazing international juried exhibit that was going on at the same time. If you want to see more images from both exhibitions check out the Wayne Art Center website by clicking here.
"Thrown and Carved" at the Clay Coop
I also have a solo exhibition up at the Clay Coop in Rockville, MD. This exhibit will be accompanied by a workshop about altering pots off the wheel by carving. There are still a select number of seats left in this workshop! If you have not heard of the Clay Coop before and you live in the DC area you should definitely check out their website by clicking here.
To sum things up I'm also excited to share that I am now apart of the group "Home Before Dawn."
