so i've been workin' my butt off lately, reclaiming my clay. this is something i've put off a long time because it's so much friggin hard work....but in the spirit of acting "environmentally friendly" and also saving money i brought out the big drill with the huge mixer bit, mixed the reclaim daily and dried it on shards of plaster, creating a huge brown mess around my studio and on my clothes. anywho, these are the pots that came from that work...

people always ask me what inspires me...it makes me realize that i really am not inspired by other pots. in fact i really try to not look at much pottery or "ceramic art", i find i will subconsciously copy or pick up on elements in their work and i don't like feeling that way. i get my main inspiration from music and fashion and life...the people my friends, relationships troubles and triumphs, late night conversations over wine, analysations about truth and importance, and dreaming...i have a chalkboard in my studio where i write down things people have said that struck some kind of chord of truth or comedy with me.
