Potter, Artist and Dog Owner from Massachusetts
Q: What's the process for creating your work? How long does it usually take to make one piece?
A: One thing that ceramics teaches me every day is patience. It's a very slow medium to work with and a lot of times it is controlling you and not the other way around. The only part of the process that I ever really feel like I have full control over is throwing and trimming on the wheel and once a completed load of pots come out of the kiln - everything in between is a waiting game.
Each piece requires different things in terms of time but if we just use a mug as an example, it takes about 20 days give or take a day from start to finish. During this time, I would throw, handle, trim, allow the piece to dry out, bisque fire it, sand it, glaze it, and then glaze fire it.
