Tray Tray Again

Here are a few students' first projects, just quick little trays that were used for glaze testing. The 2012-2013 student gallery is now up with galleries and photos for all the students I could find finished work for. In the next couple weeks we should have some tea bowls to show also.

The Smell Of Fall

Ah, it's that time of year again, when the bright eager faces of students fill the classrooms and the smoke of burning, shredded confidential paperwork beautifully belches from blackened trashcans and wafts through the air, as those more pyromaniacal souls experiment with raku. It's good to be back at it.

All Work And No Clay

Day 11 of house-building

If you've been wondering what I've been up to, for the last five weeks I was helping build a home-away-from-home on Lopez Island for Lisa and I, to replace the little cabin Lisa had. The only clay I saw was around the foundation, which I didn't get a chance to play with. I did get a fair amount of practice hammering, though. Click on the photo to go to a gallery of images of the house taking shape. The floor, exterior walls and roof are made from Structural Insulated Panels, or SIPs - styrofoam sandwiched between sheets of OSB. Below area few more photos from my stay.
