All my work is hand made from a lump of clay, some purchased in moist form and other mixed in the studio at CCBC. I fire at all temperatures from cone 06 to cone 10. I fire raku, oxidation, and reduction. I am looking forward to participating in a wood firing this spring at Clayworks in Mount Washington, Maryland.

is just 4 more weeks left til the new session of classes start. The
flyers are out and the new classes will be listed on the website within
the next week. We are adding a Thursday night class from 6-9 for those
who want to start a bit earlier. Watch for more updates here and at http://pottersguild.org/
CCBC Essex continuing education Ceramics classes start March 18th and run for 6 weeks. Learn hand building and throwing with stoneware clay and fire to cone 10 in a reduction environment.
Firing in reduction is a bit different than firing in an electric
kiln. Oxygen is reduced in the kiln that makes the glazes have chemical
reactions that can not be gotten in an electric kiln. Lot of fun and
beautiful things happen in reduction. Come and take the 6 week class
and see what is different in reduction.
