Endless Beginngs

 Hand-built earthenware

They are burnished and textured, never glazed.

This work requires all of the components that I bring to hand-built pottery, i.e., large size, texture, carved openings, and burnishing (polishing).  Pieces in the “Endless Beginnings” series are always large and textured using a piece of Bahamian coral and a black walnut from Virginia. The pieces have several open, carved areas (structurally very dangerous until fired), with burnishing around these areas for enhancement.
