Ben Carter of Red Clay Rambler interviewed me amidst the hustle and bustle of NCECA back in March. It was a really great conversation and I am so excited to be able to share it with you! Ben asked me about my work and much more, leading to a conversation with me that you have not heard anywhere else!
About Ben Carter:
With a MFA in ceramics from the University of Florida, Ben Carter has got to be one of the most well-traveled studio potters I have ever met. Ben recently relocated from Shanghai China to Santa Cruz CA where he is working on building his studio.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Ben's podcast over the last year or two. His conversations are current and exciting. Ben is truly digging deep into the issues of being a studio potter and ceramist. I encourage you to add him to your playlists!

I just got my copy of the March Issue of Harper's Bazaar and I am so delighted to see my work on page 392! The article I am included in is a lovely feature on the home of my favorite clients ever--Keith Johnson and Glen Senk. The couple recently bought and renovated a West Village home and did such an incredible job. I am flattered to be a part of their home and the feature!
With just under two weeks until my departure for Atlanta to install "Physic Garden", there's been a lot of glazing and firing going on! Just about every horizontal surface in the studio is covered in plates.
A batch of plates getting their first coat of clear glaze. Each plate gets three coats. The backs are glazed too!
Each plate is coded with letters and numbers so I know its position within the grid. After the glaze firing, the plates get a wire loop secured with a metal crimp to hang them from.
And a sneak peek at a little cluster of four finished glazed plates!
