It is not a regular ritual, like the day in, day out making of my functional pottery. Making my biodegradable urns is something that happens every couple of months (unless I have a special order). Making these urns is a whole different mindset from my functional foodie pottery. The first thing I have to do is clear the big work table… which in turn clears my head. I lay out the colored papers which I painted months before. I think about my forms and patterns, roll out the paper clay that I have made weeks before, and begin creating. The thing I love about these urns is the process… a totally different process than what I do daily in my studio. The results are immediate, the color, the texture, and the form. No kiln involved, no waiting a couple of weeks for the results!
