Now with more light box

This evening I built myself a lightbox for photographing my ceramics (following instructions involving sharp knives and the nagging fear you are going to accidentally cut your arm off (or worse, both arms)). I need better lights, but the effect is quite nice.

Small milk jug, cinnamon clay glazed with Ferg yellow and fired to cone 10 oxidation.

Pit Fire Workshop

This weekend marked the end of the Palo Alto Art Center Foundation‘s pit fire workshop, organized by the awesome Miki Shim-Rutter. Yesterday we packed the pit with sawdust, bark, wood and bisque-fired ceramics. Today, we took the pieces out.

Here is one of my pieces. The next step is to polish it after a few weeks’s rest.
