Thank you.

Awesome! I love your work. Its great to see your studio too.
Are you a full time production potter?

Hi Rose,

Thanks for the compliments! I'll scan more pictures when I get the chance. I think about pottery all the time and love to make, draw, use, contemplate, collect and find pictures of it. But I don't have the inner makeup to be a full time potter. People like my stuff and I've sold a lot when I have some extra but not enough to raise a family. Some people do and I give them lots of credit, for me it's more appropriate to work at another job and make the pottery I want when I can.

Later, Rustic

I just joined and checked out this "thread" 'cause I'm taking a pottery class. (I also carve and sculpt wood and stone.) Your work is very, very, very nice! It doesn't surprise me at all that you sell any extra that you make.

Excellent job!

Stoneware bowls.
Beautiful and functional.

Thank you!!!!! I'll take some more pictures one of these days....

Your work is very good. I especially love the vases. Do you fire in an electric kiln that I see in your studio? Or a wood kiln?

Hi Netty,

Thank you for the compliments! All the pottery I have posted I did fire in the electric kiln in the picture. You can definetly get some really cool effects from wood, salt or other reduction kilns and I'll post some if I ever get around to scanning them. But electric kilns are much easier to get going with and often cheap or free if you don't mind re-wiring them. See my post on "the cone 5 electric kiln problem" to see about the glazes I came up with to get the look of this pottery. Let me know if you have any questions, I love to talk about this stuff!

Thanks, Rustic

This work is very cool :thumbsup:. It makes me want to run out and sign up for a class.

Have a great day,
