Demonstration:

Most of my porcelain and stoneware are high-fired in a soda kiln. Images of the loading and firing of the soda kiln will be displayed. I will explain the process and answer questions.

Directions:

At the corner of Highway 19 and Center Road in Chimacum, go South on Center Road for 4.5 miles. Turn left on Egg and I Road for .5 miles. The driveway is on the left.

Artist Statement:

The responsiveness of clay has intrigued me since my first pottery class thirty years ago. Creating with the raw material and the science of making glazes and firing kiln are equally engaging for me. Working with high-fire stoneware and porcelain, I use the potter’s wheel and hand building techniques to create utilitarian pots. Soda-firing adds an element of the unexpected with a direct marking from the flame.

Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
