The year 2013 marked a significant shift in my own work as I switched from using stoneware to earthenware clay in the studio.
This lovely Kathryn Finnerty Flower Block was one of my inspirations to do so. The richness of the red clay exposed by her mark-making through the slip is exquisite, as are the rhythmic pinch marks on top. It has been a family favorite in our home for quite some time.
The little Vase Trio of my own were the some of my first earthenware pieces created, and thus began my love affair with red clay!
