In the 1990's while in art school, even painters like myself had to handle wood, clay paper, etc. I loved clay! Six years ago, I came to Gavilan and the love affair with clay continues!
My current passion is pit fire. Pit firing is amazing venture, always different. For me, it's a joy, like opening up a gift. I find the act of burnishing to be a meditation of sorts. The beauty of the clay surface painted with fire is surpassed to me.
