Ceramics by Kristin Doner
Kristin Doner's ceramic artwork has been featured in books and magazines internationally (see Exhibition History). One of the notable features of this body of work was her method for making an 8-pound pinch pot, using the hammer and anvil technique (paddling the clay against her hand). Read one of the articles and see demo photos (scroll to page 2).
A specially designed raku kiln allowed her to fire one large pot at a time without moving the piece to a reduction container. Later work utilized the coil method and electric firing, combined with original metal jewelry made for each piece, as in Pyramus & Thisbe shown here.
