Artist's Statement: I work and maintain a studio pottery, along with my husband Bruce Gholson, in Seagrove, North Carolina. Primarily, I make my pottery at the wheel with porcelain clay. I enjoy working with porcelain's smooth texture and the brilliant color response glazes have when applied to its white surface. I like to decorate the surface of the pots I make, and many times I will design the clay forms for particular glazing techniques. My approach to surface decoration, varies depending on my choice of glazes, the type of firing, and my current mood. I have applied a flowing molybdenum crystalline glaze on the porcelain vase I have presented here at Vasefinder.
