– explorations in color, image, pattern
Ceramics and wheel throwing are recent but extreme fascinations! I could have spent four years just studying glazes, clay bodies, and the history of formal archetypes… Alas, I am thrilled to be able to explore form and decoration in a really direct and fulfilling way, but through my relation to the making of the objects but also through their lives with other users.
During this time I was an intern at the UC Berkeley Art Studio. I took a course in Image Transfer, using slip to transfer images from paper to clay. I also enjoyed using their recycled glaze - it is made from all of the glaze materials that is filtered out of the water that goes down the drain. The glaze is a pretty and dark bottle green.
