Well now, here's the scoop on my ceramic adventures thus far. I have been designing jewelry with artisan ceramic components for many years now. During that time I accumulated a large hoard of ceramic pieces from 20 or so of my favorite artists. That's how I originally came to know AJE team members Karen Totten and Diana Ptaszynski.

Fine Clay Art took me under her wing and has been generously sharing her skill, knowledge and talent with me. Marion and I have done art shows together and I have always admired her work.

On Wednesday I used a red clay that I just loved working with! I don't know yet how it will look when it is done, but it felt really good in my hands, (yes, I'm a very tactile person!). I think the joy is pretty evident on my face.
