Shelter in place, nothing else to do but throwing more pots. Here is another roller texture lidded/covered jar. In-depth explanation on my YouTube for almost 50 minutes of demo. Hopefully I don’t make you bore while you’re in the same situation as a lot of people in California!

I finally finished sanding the last few pots that were headed to NCECA. With everything going on in the world my chief focus has not been making pots. But now that I have nothing else to do really I guess it’s time to get back into it. This is one of my favorites from the most recent group.

I think this “Origami” version is my favorite at this very moment.

These 2 are friends. I spent much of my childhood moving around, leaving good friends behind and struggling through the process of making new friendships. I always felt a bit different than everybody else. I especially found it hard to feel included amongst other artists. I still struggle with this and suspect many others do too. Four years ago I discovered @clayladycampus where my studio is located today. This place has shown me what inclusion means. It has given me the type of acceptance that allows me to express myself more authentically. The really wonderful thing about it all is that my friends aren’t just like me. We aren’t all the same age, gender or race. Their family structures are different than mine. Some of them are cat people. I’m team dog. 💙

Day 18: Technique/skills
.
.
Here is a sped up video of me making a grounding creature. I don’t start with an idea, I’m usually led by the shape of the lump of clay I tear off. Then I smooth, push, pull and a little form begins to appear. It’s a process that I find very soothing. .
.
This isn’t a technique or skill heavy method of making. It’s mainly about having a feeling for the clay and a little bit of imagination. I just use my fingers and a toothpick. I’ve got other proper sculpting tools here too but sometimes I prefer to keep it simple.
.
.
I really appreciate all the people who bought some from my last batch. I’ve had a few requests for more so I’m on it! .

It was calming to finish this dinnerware set this week and send it off to its new home. I have struggled mentally this week, worrying about those losing jobs, kids going without meals, friends who are immunocomprimised, my own business future uncertainty… but grounding myself in pottery practice and walks outdoors have helped bring moments of sanity within the storm. Every day I look at my seedlings in the basement, breaking through their shell, pushing through their dirt covering to emerge with their first leaves, then stretching their green bodies toward the light and growing taller each hour. I admire those of you who have pushed through this week with energy and positivity. I appreciate seeing your posts and admire your fighting spirit. I know I should probably be pumping out videos and stories and getting stuff posted online for sale, but ~~~ sometimes I move way slower and have to crawl through the dust before I make my way to the sunshine. Maybe I’m one of those seeds that needs more warmth and time to germinate, but I will push through the dark earth eventually. For now, I keep working in my quarantine, waiting to push through my shell and send my leaves to the sun. Wherever you are in the process, I send you much love and warmth 🌱🌞🌷 (at Twisp, Washington)

Day 15, Self Care. How appropriate, friends. This video is a peek into yesterday, and me wrestling with 7 lbs of clay throwing a planter. I’ll be in the studio this week continuing to create pots that make me happy. 🌱
Michael and I will also be working towards listing new work online! With our physical retail shop closed for the foreseeable future, this is a time to find a fluid way of moving forward💫
