I have been dreaming about working in porcelain clay ever since I stopped going to The Clay Studio almost 25 years ago. I love the pottery studio at the Fleisher Art Memorial and plan to return, but they only fire earthenware and terra cotta, no stoneware and no porcelain.
So I signed up for a hand building class at TCS and am on my way to porcelain bliss. I spent last Tuesday digging into a bag of porcelain clay and making pinch pots, a soap dish and a little sculptural piece. There are so many new things I want to try that I have to remind myself to breathe.
I feel so lucky to have two great pottery studios so close to me. The Clay Studio is another Philadelphia treasure.
