The Development of the Nerikomi Range

The Development of the Nerikomi Range

The entire point of this post is to reflect on my growth as a ceramic artist. I still constantly feel like I am not there yet. There are too many ideas in my head and I haven't been able to execute even 10% of them. Technical frustration, skill limitations, artistic frustration and external feedback all get to me. This is my reminder to you (and myself) that it is a process. Racing to the end is not possible but also not what is going to make the journey worthwhile. As I have gone through this journey from 2016 to now I have made 100s of mistakes, 100s of works that while I was proud of at the time I would happily see smashed now but I continue to move forward. 

Pottery is not instant satisfaction and I am so grateful for that. Students always say to me 'how do i ....' and as insanely annoying as it is its practice. 

Here is to practice. My practice, your practice moving forward, continuously improving and trying as hard as I can to enjoy all the bumps along the way.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Working with clay is not the most environmentally friendly craft there is. This is mainly because clay and the other materials we use in pottery are largely (not always) natural and finite resources. Yes, new clay is constantly being formed by natural earth processes but if you have been in the pottery game for a while you will know that sometimes clays or ingredients simply disappear on us. This can be because a mine runs out, it's no longer economical to mine that material, legal issues are prohibitive.
