So much of my creativity arises in dream form first. That was the case with my writing. It was visualized as a secret garden in my dreams, repeatedly, all through the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Then, I started having dreams about my ceramic practice – long abandoned. I had dreams where it came to the fore of my life in college and I thought about majoring in it. I never did that but I enjoyed many classes and after class raku session in pottery.
As fate would have it, my lovely children purchased a ceramic class for my husband and I. (Thanks to them!!) Here are the results. It is all fired at medium-range and is made from
stoneware. I was trying to simulate raku but using an indoor, electric kiln.
