Finished Work

February 16, 2014

Every step of pottery is enjoyable. Concepts flare to sketches which are transformed into clay which are then brought to life in a kiln. And it is when I pull a fired piece of pottery from the kiln that a zest for creation flares to life within me. Actually holding a finished product in my hand and seeing how one glaze interacts with another, or how each drip gracefully curves around a shoulder or hip of a pot... it’s exciting! It’s a high, really, that rolls around my body and I immediately feel the need to jump back on the wheel.


Last night I opened the door of my first and last firing at CMU. It was a bitter sweet moment. I was filled with that urge to jump right back into creation and yet I did not have the ability to do so. In three days’ time I will be leaving Mt. Pleasant and the only studio I have known for the past eight years. Thankfully, I am leaving because of an internship which will allow me to continue creating pottery. But, it’s difficulty to say good bye none the less.


As for my last firing I could not have asked for a better turn out! If you want to see some of the work that was fired, I have posted images in my portfolio.
