I LOVED clay in high school and was able to revisit it about 15 years ago when I was given a kiln and a wheel. I then took a ceramics class from Bill Mateer through NIACC in Mason City IA.

I work with mid-range clay and high fire stoneware clay. My work is fired in electric, gas, and soda kilns. The soda fire kiln is my favorite because it is the one you interact with the most, and is also the most unpredictable. Each time you open a kiln, it is like Christmas.

A lot of my work is inspired by people asking me to make a particular item. Most of my work is utilitarian so the purpose of the piece makes it easier to design. The hardest part about creating a masterpiece is letting yourself think it is a masterpiece.

Interesting tidbit. I discovered 25 years after finishing high school that my art teacher had kept and used several of my high school pottery pieces as examples to show his art students. I learned this when he asked a friend to return them to me.

This is what pottery looks like when it’s been bisque fired and glazed, but has not had the final glaze firing. The colors of the glaze on the bisque ware compared to after the glaze fire are so different!

One of the most exciting days in a potter’s work is unloading a final firing... Always anxious to know if everything turned out (sometimes things break or for other reasons are ruined) and what the glaze combinations look like. Yesterday was one of those exciting days!
