Materials & Production
I get my Cone 5 clay from East Bay Clay in Richmond, CA. The talented Michael Haney runs a one-man factory there, devising all his own recipes and mixing the clay himself. It is fabulous stuff – Cone 5 Red, Cone 5 Brown, Roseville, Bay, Coach. I use pre-mixed Cone 5 glazes from Coyote, Amaco and Laguna. I do my throwing on a Lockerbie kickwheel with a power-assist motor, and fire to Cone 5 in a Skutt electric kiln with an electronic controller.
I and my housemate enjoy the soap dish I discovered at the Davis Food Co-op today. We always search for the most local source to reduce our carbon footprints. Thanks for you artwork.
