Nailing Jello to the Wall With Both Hands

11799B, untitled, 1999, $800

I am still amazed that this soft lime/mint green can pull away from the claybody and still adhere after it cooled. How cool is this?! I love the rich turquoise color, blending into all that texture and yet remaining a saturated Egyptian blue. Seeing that brown clay peeking out from under everything just makes me laugh. Almost seems like some strange potter's joke... the clay is still there under everything.

Wracking My Mind, and Still - Nothing Comes Out

9298H - untitled, 1998, $700

This platter has some of the most amazing crystal growth I have ever seen. Almost like layers of ice built up, or salt accumulating in a salt-pan. You can see individual crystals starting in one spot and then growing into a mat of smooth pale crystals. The rich saturated yellow-orange glaze, crackled and ripped open is so striking.

Glaze Tectonics - mossy green (9998C)

9998C - from the Glaze Tectonics series, made in UT 1998 ©
still available for purchase

This glaze finish reminds me of moss turned into stone. It flows in soft waves, and crackles as it cools. The sage color looks like it should smell like springtime. Running my fingers over it, it feels almost like a beachwashed stone, polished from years of tumbling against the shore.
