This was my first project building a coil piece. I'd seen these before so wanted to make one myself. The tricky part really was finding the right glaze that wouldn't run so much that I ruined in the firing process. I decided to wipe it down after glazing to be safe, leaving it with a more natural stoneware look.

Love your vase, Jenny! I have in mind a sphere using a similar design concept, but unfortunately my first attempt collapsed in greenware. I reallyl like the contrast of your "dots and lines!"

Thanks Janet, I'm very excited to try more. Now if I could only retire from my "real" job, I'd actually have more time to devote to clay. After taking some classes in hand building techniques, I now carry a journal around so I can sketch or write down ideas as they come to me. I tend to draw a blank when I show up at the studio if I don't have a specific project in mind when I get there. My time there is precious.

I know that feeling all too well! However, I can't draw worth a lick, so any sketch I might put together would just confuse me, so I make notes instead...LOL!

I hear you. I do like to sketch too and it gives me an outlet when I can't get to the studio. I see something in the store or a design on something and I think I can do that in clay. It's a visual reminder. Nobody sees them but me! ha

Muddyhands - Creations In Clay

I started working in clay in the early 1980s when I moved to Denver, CO and found a community center with a great studio dedicated to clay arts . It was there that I first learned to throw on a kick wheel. I love to play in the mud.
