stirring up the meltingpot

My love for eating and the right presentation of food, has led me to the art of ceramics. I've collected dishes and other ceramics ever since I began traveling the world as a fashion model. I started designing my own pottery after enrolling in a ceramics class some 15 years ago. I am inspired by archeological finds and tribal art.

Ceramics by Miranda Forrest.

I am currently reading the above book by Forrest. It’s going through they key elements that make up glazes, their purposes, and their origins from the land. It then digresses to explain what and how you can make your own natural glazes. It is a fascinating book and I’m learning a great deal. I also have a book called Ash Glazes by Phil Rogers that I also plan on reading.

I’m really interested in exploring this area, with relation to the natural clay I’ve been working with for the last 6 months. I am interested in exploring further the link between places; where I dig up the clay, the process, the meaning, the journey back to where I work with the clay.. It will be very interesting to collect natural matter from these areas, and perhaps other areas of significance for me, documenting the process and exploring what this means to me.
