My Ceramic Studio
Casamariposa Art Studio - Ceramic studio
News coming about the new location of the studio............My old art studio was built in December of 2006. It sat on almost 3 acres of property, full of gardens and fruit trees. The studio was 16' by 24' , not huge, but filled with lots of sunshine from the solid glass wall facing south. The mountain ranges that I could see from my potter's wheel were a huge source of inspiration to me. The studio was so named after the house I lived in. Casa De La Mariposa was the name of my "casa". It means "house of the butterfly woman".
I use my electric wheel for throwing and the kick wheel for trimming each piece of pottery. I use a variety of clays and glazes to create the pieces. I have been working with Bristlecone (a gritty, pink colored clay), Danish White (pure white and fine), Cassius (a black colored clay) and Terracotta (Red clay).
