Tell me about your process when beginning new pieces?
I always have a million ideas floating around in my mind for new bowls, fun curvy shapes and bright glazes to try out. Admittedly I don't use a sketchbook as often as I should anymore. But, I rarely find myself with a lack of ideas. Its usually quite the opposite- too many ideas and not enough time. I guess a sketchbook would help with those moments too.. but, this current method of storing the ideas in my mind seems to work just fine, for now anyways.
I make my own glazes, so once a week I spend an entire day mixing up new formulas. I have a few go-to glazes I always have stocked in my studio, such as my aqua, yellow and pink. Many of the other colors I make as I work. At the moment I have been working on developing a new chartreuse and a new purple glaze. The trial and error of this process is exhilarating.
Do you have a studio? Tell me about your workspace.
