I generally come to the studio with ideas and reference materials, but as work develops often the clay suggests new directions. I build sculptures using clay coils and some slabs. I carve and model the details. Most often I bisque fire the work before I apply any finish, but sometimes I use colored slip on greenware. After I apply glazes and oxides to the bisqueware, the sculptures are taken to a higher temperature in a second firing to completely melt the silica in the clay and fuse the chemicals in the finish. This glaze firing makes the clay non-porous. Lately I have been working with durable air dried clay and cold finishes.
