41st piece

I usually don't glaze my pieces but this glaze does exactly what I want - the majority of my porcelain pieces are salt fired.

39th piece

several weeks ago I was drinking a heineken and realized that we had the same green color glass in the pot furnace so I decided to try and make a beer bottle. I drink water out of it while I am at work. I have to admit it is kinda weird drinking out of a beer bottle at work.

some older pieces

These pieces are pretty recent but were not done this calender-year. I am shooting the pieces in my new photo tent/cube I just bought. It's great for smaller pieces.

38th piece

I wanted to show more of the process including the transfer to the punty. I wanted the punty (the rod the piece is transfered to from the blow pipe) to be pretty hot to show how you kinda have to dance with it... almost got it too hot though.

It's good to be back in my studio.

36th piece

35th piece

this is a plastic board I put over my photographic developer. Years of drips from the holy roof of the warehouse that my studio is in. Cold in the winter and hot in the summer but man is it cheap.

34th piece

This is Carlos. Believe it or not he used to be a stray dog.

sorry about the weird smile. I was trying to say stop filming without doing the "cut" hand gesture
