Clayart and Visiting Israeli Potter
I have been participating on an Internet newsgroup of potters from
around the world, called Clayart
-- for those of you who are or would-be potters out there, come
visit. This is a really great group of people and the information
shared on this newsgroup is priceless.
In 2001, I saw a message on Clayart from an Israeli
potter whose husband was taking a two-week class at Georgia Tech.
She was looking for a studio to make pots (I could totally undersand
that! It's what I would want to do on vacation.) So,
I sent her an e-mail inviting her to use my studio while they were
in town. I learned that Hanna has been a potter and a teacher
of pottery for 20+ years. She generously shared her knowledge
and experience with me. Hanna and Gabi's visit is something
I will treasure for a long time.
Here are some pictures I'd like to share of Hanna's
visit and her work. At the bottom of the page is a link to
Hanna's website. One final note, Hanna's speciality is glaze
formulation and she shared a few of her recipes with me. I
tried out her Ivory base glaze with sapphire glaze and copper oxide
wash on top and totally loved the results (see samples of
the cups at the bottom Oxidation section).
