recent work

I fire the kiln about twelve times a year, & try to pick out a few pieces each month that represent new directions, or good achievements, or just plain good examples of typical, personal, work. It's all cone ten reduction-fired stoneware.

Most of the pots are wheel-thrown, or thrown & altered. Many glazes are formulated with materials I've dug nearby, here in Northern New Mexico.
