I am currently a student at Sierra Nevada College in beautiful Lake Tahoe. I am working towards my BFA in ceramics. I am relatively new to the ceramic art world, but I am quickly making up ground and filling every moment of my life with art shows, conventions, ceramics history and time in the studio. This blog is just a collection of what I make, what I see and things that peek my interest in the art world. Enjoy!

Doug introduced me to red earthenware clay. I love working with it, so smooth. (Left)
Also, he taught me how to dry center a large bunch of clay, I use his technique now, every time I make a large piece. (Right)
A few of my pieces made during the workshop, still greenware. (Left and Right)
Doug adding a large coil to his already huge pot.
My class, above. It was only the five of us, two techies and Doug. Perfect size.
During the workshop, I could spread out so I was working on three wheels at once. Unheard of during the school year. (Left)
My first big piece, (right) I was so excited and it beat the hight of Doug's big piece (below) by two inches! lol
