This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.


The 10 class session is over. In the photo below: Ray Duval, my teacher, was working on a large vase when I went to pick up my glazed pieces.  When I asked if he thought I could throw a large vase he said, "Practice!".

Ceramics Teacher, Ray Duval

The pots and mugs that I made below, were fired.  It was a surprise to see how the glazes turned out. My favorite is the little turquoise cup which is a spherical form with a symmetrical lip and foot.
