Marie and I have been collaborating for two years now. We have a lovely rapport going on.


Our work has been evolving towards Marie throwing vessels which I modify into dress forms. We go back and forth to figure out how her thrown vessel can give me opportunities in the dress sculpting. During the two past sessions, we have used her usual porcelain, clay found in an orchard which rings beautifully when played as a bell, and polar ice clay, which is made by Plainsman and is a particularly white and translucent porcelain, if you can get it thin enough. Here are some images of work in progress, some fired, some not.
