...imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown [Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream]
A blog of discovering clay. A chance to explore the philosophy and practicalities of twenty-first century pots. A collection of leads for my students and myself.
Look at that face!
(Harrison MacIntosh’s 100th birthday party at American Museum of Ceramic Art.)
If you like to read, and you like to think, and you puzzle at the adversarial relationship between culture and commerce in these United States, please read this book. It fuels the fire in my heart to make my work, and to reconsider cultural conventions I’ve allowed to hold me back.

This blog (fired earth) contains work by many brilliant ceramic artists from around the world. There is almost always a credit to the person, or else the originator of the image. With a bit of research you should be able to find the artist. Some are available at galleries, Etsy shops, or may be available direct from the artist. A very small portion of the work on this blog is made by me. I don’t have an Etsy shop, but I might be able to arrange sales of my work by post, or if you are in Sydney, you can see my work at a gallery here. Please make the effort to buy handmade ceramics. They are fabulous contemplation pieces, will give you a lifetime of beauty, and you will make a ceramic artist very happy as well.
Beautifully said, fired-earth.
