Pit firing produces magical results!
I built a "pit" in my backyard and I've been experimenting with various organic materials to produce a variety of effects and colors. The surfaces remind me of the night sky or the milkyway.
When is taking risks a good idea?
Definitely in the studio. We have to take risks to find new pathways. We want to make discoveries, find new connections, make something that didn't exist before, something we couldn't necessarily plan for or imagine. So, we try new things! We say to ourselves, "what if I try this?", "what happens if I put this here?", "what if I do this thing I was always told never to do?"
