I am newly excited and inspired to do more now that I have a page on Etsy.com. For those of you who may not know, Etsy is the Ebay (although not run by the same people) of crafters. It is a sight for selling hand crafted art, clothing, jewelry, etc. and vintage pieces, as well. So I put up the pieces I have for sale and hope they sell, while I work on my new line. Part of my malaise of the past had to do with switching form Cone 10 gas and soda fire to Cone 6 electric oxidation. Trying to find the right clay body and glazes and how to put them together, and if a glaze says Cone 5-6 do you fire to 5 and hold at the end, can you push it to 7. All of these experimental stages that I did with Cone 10. Well. all I can say is, "The mind is willing, but the body is weak."
Anyway, I am going to go with this new found enthusiasm and work it for all it's worth. Check out the page. Only a few thing on there, but it's a start. Love the clay!!!!
