I love this! I just saw it in this month’s issue of Ceramics Monthly and it immediately jumped out at me. I wasn’t previously familiar with your work, but now am a huge fan. Your coils are so fine, do you layer them to achieve your wall thickness?
I spent about a half hour just ooking at the picture of this piece and am just in awe. I can’t coil worth a darn with larger coils, so I am fascinated by your work. 🙂

wow, thanks Tricia!
yes they are coiled, rolled out very thin, and shingle-lapped ,each coil is flattened before the next is added .
the coils put on this way don’t stress out the soft vessel below…it sort of drys as you go.
Ceramics Monthly? really? I had no idea it appeared in there! 🙂 which month?

It was the new October issue. It was an ad from Blue Rain Gallery, but it was a full page of this vase. They do a good job with promotion apparently. 🙂
Are you on display anywhere in the Midwest or east coast? I’d love to see a piece in person.

Thanks! I’ll have to see if i can get a copy of that mag. somewhere.
Blue Rain Gallery often does wonderful promo work for their artists. Great photography too.
I’m not surprised you haven’t seen much in the public… my whole life is fairly detached from the general “ceramic scene!” 🙂
If you check out my BIO (see the top of the right hand corner)there’s a list of some museums my stuff is in…some in the midwest and one in NY.
I appreciate all your positive comments!
