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, Roseville, Bay, Coach.  I use pre-mixed Cone 5 glazes from Coyote, Amaco and Laguna.  I do my throwing on an ancient Brent kickwheel with a power-assist motor, and fire to Cone 5 in a smallish Olympic 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.
