Pottery Studio - Remodel Before & After
I put together a slide show of the before & after of
my studio remodel/makeover! Thanks to the help of my
family and our family friend "Mike The Greek", I was
able to paint, get new electrical and lighting, hang
new shelving and enlist my daughter the artist to
decorate with chalk!
I'm so excited for my first Artist Open Studio next
weekend and wish you all could come! Email me if you
think you can make it and I'll send you the address
and welcome you warmly :D !
Thanks for watching (and sticking with me through
the process when there weren't any "official pottery
making videos" to share ;)
My most asked question: "What is the name of that tool you
trim with after you throw?"
ANSWER: A Dolan 120 ! Back a few years ago when first
learning how to throw I saw
Robin Hopper (a world
renowned potter) throwing with this tool. I
wanted it so much I found him online and emailed
him directly to see if I could get the name of
it. He was so happy to help and told me this is
the tool he has used for YEAR! The one tool I
love the most and can not live without is my
Help Me With This
Project! "My Chop Mark Collection"
I would love to add your special mark to my
collection! If you could take a quick photo of your
"Chop Mark" in clay (signature or stamp), and send
it to me (see below). I'll be happy to post it to
site and I can even put a link to your website, blog, youtube channel, Etsy store or none at all if you
wish! Whatever would help you best!
WHY A CHOPMARK COLLECTION?
Chop Marks on handmade pieces allow an artist to
claim "parenthood" of each piece while helping those
who are interested in their work know of its
original origin. To me, these markings are works of
art in themselves, just like individual people are
unique...so is an artists' Chop Mark!
Please let me know if you have any questions or
challenges! ~ Thanks in advance!
