|THE TOOLS OF THE ARTIST - BATS, CLAY SCALE, A WHEEL AND A BREEZY WINDOW|
M • OK, so I'm curious ----are you are a gardener? So much of your work seems to be garden pottery? If so, how do you decide what shape to throw and what to make? I know some potters let the 'clay speak' to them, others, have a clear vision. Do you create containers with specific plants in mind or does the shape drive you? I see similarity in your pieces, sure, but I think what attracts me is that even though everything have a clear visual language as a thread, it still never feels like production pottery - the craft is still there.
M • I know that clay can be more than messy, not that we gardeners are very neat! Where do you do your work? Do you have a studio or a dedicated place where you can do your work?
