We welcomed twelve new students into my studio today for another week long workshop at the TORTUS clay studio. Day 1 is always quite intense as we try our best to get everyone off on the right foot. We have a mix of beginners and experienced throwers, all with different goals and needs, and we pride ourselves on quickly getting the ball rolling on each individual student’s development👍🏾

Me trimming a tall vessel. Workshops keep my time pretty occupied during the summer months, so I fit my own work in where I can. In this case over the weekend. It helps the my job is also my hobby✌🏾

Had a very lovely visit today from a beloved member of the TORTUS family, @mathildeeich keramik (left of me )❤️ She has been a very important part of our small close team, and we are saddened that a complication in her pregnancy has meant that she’s had to take a break from ceramics. Many of you that have met her will agree with me when I write that she is just awesome! We wish @mathildeeich keramik great health and we hope to see here back at the wheel some time in 2020!!!❤️

A part of a workshop demo showing that there are many possible ways to pull a cylinder if one understands and respects the principal of a good pull. I used my chin next. Will not be sharing that one😅

Bellying a small fluted vessel from the perspective of the wheelhead. Notice the slight wobble. It’s the piece making contact with my hand and tool with each rotation.🌀 ________________________________________ Music by @insightful , Cherry Chapstick #makersgonnamake #clay #pottery #ceramics #ceramics #potteryvideos #creative #artisan #handmade #ceramic #diy

I’m a restless maker, always exploring new possibilities. Any of you the same?

Some of you may remember I did a video like this 9 years ago that made a lot of people dizzy. Thought I’d give it another go after all these years.

I have to steady the piece with my left hand so it doesn’t tip over as I trim.😅🤞🏾 Music by @insightful , Cherry Chapstick. _ #ceramics #pottery #clay #makersgonnamake #artisan #creative #crafts #handmade #ceramicart #diy #artsandcrafts #potteryvideos #processvideos

900K followers😱 I am grateful that this once kinky haired Black/Mexican mixed kid from Milwaukee has the opportunity to share his work with the world despite being confronted with a number of serious hurdles in life. Grateful to have the chance to prove that, despite struggles in school as a child and being told that I wasn’t quite book smart enough, that intelligence takes many forms and one can be successful despite one’s limitations. Grateful to prove those wrong who said “ya can’t make a living doing pottery”, and thought “who are you to believe that you can’t achieve something that few have achieved with your pots.” Where there is talent, creativity and determination, anything is possible. Grateful to, despite being made to have self esteem over my ethnicity and appearance throughout the my youth, to have deepened my love and pride for it, and add just a little more color to the crafts scene which struggles with the problems of underrepresentation. Grateful to, despite not being particularly popular or cool in high school myself, manage to reach and inspired a countless high school students and aspiring young ceramicist around the world with my work. It’s all only possible because of your love and support. I feel honored dedicate just a little of your time following my life in clay. Thank you from bottom of my heart ❤️

Making pottery can be a messy job and I love a mess every now and then. However, many have asked how my clothes stay so clean in the studio and at the wheel. With practice comes cleanliness. Effective throwing is generally cleaner.
