Galaxies In The Making / by Jennifer Rose

I have a bit of pesky surgery coming up that will keep me from doing heavy lifting in the studio so I’m trying to plan ahead.  I really love the Galaxy series that I have been working on and, since I can’t work on the wheel after next week, I’m making as many disks as possible now.  Each piece is thrown as a flat plate on the potter’s wheel and then trimmed to clean up the back.  So far I have fifty blanks to work with and half of the are already in the kiln! Soon it will be glaze-time.

I have a grouping of galaxies on display right now at the Carneal Simmons Gallery.  I hope you can make it to the summer show to see them in person.
