Susan Harris


Susan Harris held a workshop here last weekend and i am delighted that she did !!!

Sometimes an artist's work and techniques are so inspiring that after the workshop ends, one just can't wait to get to their own wheel and see how much they actually learned from the person teaching.
Such was the case after Susan's demo.
And here is the result.
Thank you Susan for coming. And thank you for sharing. It's quite awe inspiring to learn techniques from a Master Potter.
I want to thank Cynthia Guild Stoetzer for organizing and hosting this event. Cynthia is awesome !!! She is putting her heart and soul into building up the Teton Arts Council's pottery department.
And she is doing a great job.
Bravo Cynthia. And you have my heartfelt appreciation.
Have a very best creative day everyone!

Born Again

Have been studying ancient Greek pottery recently. It seems that every "new" form we create has already been done by the Greeks !!! Amazing.


Then, it seems, there is pottery of the shamanic transformation style. One would attribute this to our southwest, perhaps? Or South America?

Anyhooo, i'm sure this fello was around before, in some era from a long time ago, and found somewheres between Greece and South America.

It is said that a spiritual practioner owning such a vessel is able to transform himself into a supernatural being and take on the powers of the Jaguar !!!
Which would be fun i guess.
But i ask you,
in this day and age,
has the time for such tomfoolery?

New Work

Oops! Sorry folks. Didn't realize that it's been such a long time between postings.
Well, here we go then.
This is greenware ready for the kiln.
God willing n the creeks don't rise, a new KM1027 Stutz kiln will make its appearance and these can be bisque fired.
So i'll go ahead and Thank Him for the new kiln even if the thank you is a wee bit premature.
