hanbuildling ceramic sculptures, throwing functional potteries on the wheel, mixing glazes using my own recipes, mixing glazes using other artists' recipes
Statement

Since my retirement in 2004, I have been throwing functional potteries, handbuilding ceramic sculptures, mixing glazes with recipes from books, mixing glazes with recipes of my own, carving textures into my ceramic pieces, decorating my ceramic pieces with engobes, slips, and glazes, using different clay bodies (Coleman porcelain, Babu porcelain, B-Mix white, Half-N-Half white, Long Beach brown, and Sculpture white) for my ceramic pieces, and firing my ceramic pieces in low (cone 05), medium (cone 5), and high (cone 10) temperatures in reduction gas kiln and oxidation electric kiln.

I enjoy making ceramic functional potteries and ceramic sculptures. I will be updating my ArtSlant website when I have pictures of my finished ceramic pieces. Please visit my website as often as you can to see my new artworks. Have a very good week!!!
