Pussy willows and pottery…

The tiny window has opened for collecting pussy willow branches!  Spent a refreshing day cleaning my perennial gardens and raking the leftover leaves out from under their numerous hiding places.  The yard is still a bit soft from our generous Buffalo snow, thankfully melted.

The mud under my feet reminded me how behind I am on throwing pottery.  I have lots of new ideas for the bags of raku clay in my basement- just need to set aside time to create!  

Sometimes wish I could clone myself (then I remember my identical twin sister and I are natural clones!)  Still not enough hours in the day to play in the mud!

My Journey

It started reasonably enough with a small manual kiln I found on eBay for a few hundred bucks. I thought it would be nice to have a low maintenance kiln to test low fire glazes and bisque fire raku clay in my sun porch studio. Then I noticed the Ohio-born Vulcan could fuse glass as well. Hmmm, never tried that! Off to YouTube for a few quick lessons!

My little kiln is a trooper and a work horse! I alternate loads between pottery and glass, with an occasional recycled metal thrown in the mix.  Every load yields a new lesson…

Welcome!

It’s still a bit frigid here in Western New York- at least the sun is out- perfect excuse to get creative in my sun porch studio! Stop back soon for a peek at some of my new fused glass jewelry and raku fired pottery.
