Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well. This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by…See More

Hey Jason-
So far so good in Chicago. The work on here looks really good. Will you be at NCECA this year in Philly?

Thanks for the feedback Jason. I use a cone 6 white sculpture body, a satin base glaze and china paint. Looks like you use china paint as well...don't you love it?! I think you have a niche market of wealthy dentists out there that would snatch your work up in an instant! I love it!

I use Miller (Laguna) porcelain that I fire to cone 6 ox. I have been really happy with it for throwing, but not so much for hand building. Then again, I throw a whole lot more than I hand build!

How long do you work on an average piece? They look so intricate!

What a small world. Thanks for the nice words. Do you exhibit in the Boston area?

Your pieces are too cool (in a sick kinda way). I love them.

Get the book on Amazon!

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.

More information about the book, exhibitions, press and other hurrahs here.
