Everything went wrong with this piece. It fell off center as I was throwing it, my plastic wrapping skued the top, it dried bone dry before I got to trim it on the wheel and even then it’s so lopsided I probably wouldn’t have been able to anyways and I didn’t put enough glaze to turn the inside blue. I could have chucked it at any point in that whole process but I decided to keep it and I think I really like it. The lopsided lip acts as the perfect hold for my hand. #perfectionintheimperfection #ceramics #pottery #wheelthrowing #clay #makesomething #amacoglazes #cutecup

Taking photos of some of my ceramics tonight and discovered I like to make things in groups. 🤷♀️ I’ll take it. #ceramics #wheelthrowing
that’s a wrap 🔥 what a weekend - we‘re floored 😭 big love to everyone who came out to support our incredibly talented Asian American ceramicists this weekend 💛 here’s a shot of the weekend’s real MVPS posing with some of their favorite pieces.

This glazing turned out sorta cool. How glaze combinations react with one another, the type of clay it’s applied to, firing temperature, it’s all a mystery at this point. Carved Black clay, Blue Demon glaze in the grooves, Black Ice on the surface. #pottery #wheelthrowing #glaze #christmasgifts #maybe
This is a feeling that I haven’t felt in a long time. Elation, at a peak point of happiness. Recently, two talented artists under the name Euforia saw my work online and asked to collaborate on a project together. I really liked it and I felt honored that they chose me to work with them. Yesterday, they even flew across the country to see me on the wheel. I was a little nervous but when they stepped foot into the studio, I saw that they believed in me and encouraged me. I feel this is a start of a new era 💕🍡

Last mugs of the year. 9 mugs in the bisque firing queue, and 17 mugs in the glaze queue. 64 mugs in total this year. Several experiments, and a handful of fails. But finally making some things I’m really proud of. Aiming for 100 mugs in 2019 😊
