Pots with CHARACTER!
Some people ask me, why do I create character mugs and face jugs? Why, indeed! The little critters seem to have taken on a life of their own. But I'll tell you a secret - I didn't start out with the idea that I was going to make silly, whimsical, one-of-a-kind faces on my pottery. I started out wanting to practice sculpture.
But I had waited my whole life to finally be able to work with clay, and I didn't want the same thing to happen with that as did with my other artwork. I wanted to practice sculpture, and I wanted to improve my ability to throw clay on a wheel. What I DIDN'T want was hundreds of tiny sculpted heads lying around the house, or pottery mugs overflowing my countertops and cupboards. So I put the two together - and Big Sky Artworks on Etsy was born.

This blog will frequently feature my new work, and also include musings about clay. I hope you will join me in this journey - the muddy road of pottery!
