Working on the pottery wheel is an art and technique that I also enjoy. The pot itself is usually not enough for me, I always like to add a story to it. I’ve used wheel throwing along with my sculptural techniques to share Aesop’s Fables, nature influences, and special relationships of birds as added inspiration to my wheel-thrown pots.
As most of my clay work entails – they are usually twice fired, the second time with an oxide-stain. From there they may be fired again with glazes on them, or I’ll have used Prisma-colored pencil for the surface color, added patinas, and any other additions that seem to speak to me. All share my own special stylized-realism.
