It is something that has always intrigued me, made me happy. It's mucky, muddy, squishy. I can get lost in the process of designing and making, when I look up, hopefully I've created something beautiful and unique.
Porcelain is the king of all clays, with its snow-white translucent quality, it just screams beauty and elegance. It looks delicate, but once kiln fired, it has a hardness and toughness like stone. I'm self-taught, so have many quirks to my making, but I see this as a positive. Its tricky to work with, but it pays off!
