Stefan Schwarz and his constant use and tests with his local raw materials. Beautiful glazes. There is so much I want to do with what is around me here and now I have no excuses as time is my own. The beach I walk is full of so much I could use. Every year after the fires go through I promise myself I will go down and bring back ash from the grasses and trees that fall but still have not done it. Now its green and the rain has washed all the ash away so I wait again for the dry and its predictable fires and this year I will head down bucket in hand and fill it! I am slowly getting the feel for clay again, its been a long time since I have been able to completely focus on that wonderful muddy medium.
