BC Bud

 BC's biggest agricultural export was Grass. Now with Grass not on the road a year away from national legal distribution we have another BC Bud filling those big shoes. Here is my BC bud Cathi Jefferson making one day terra sig. Pretty clever idea to put the Red Art and Darvan in a plastic bottle so ya see the three layers of clay-(the sludge at the bottom, the finer particle clay in the middle and the murky water at the top. Cathi just poked a hole above the sludge and drained the sig into a bucket ready for use. We are firing the old gas kiln today and going to introduce some soda. We also placed some small bowls of salt between the pots in the stacking. We don't expect a very juicy surface but it is a great exercise. Cathi's decoration is top drawer. Everyone is loving her. Awesome teacher and maker!

She is an amazing teacher and potter. Very generous with her advice and her critiques are very well thought out. I have only taken one workshop with her, but I always mentally reference her when I am in the studio making and teaching.

Brilliant way to make and drain the terra sig off!

We had the great pleasure of meeting Cathi at her beautiful home and studio when we were on the island I think it was 2014. She was very gracious and generous with when time and we were happy to add a few more of her beautiful pieces to our collection. She seems like a lovely person and what a slice of paradise she lives in! A creative persons dream to live in a forest like that!!

When ever I'm in the studio "cat-licking" on a piece, I think of Cathi's teachings... Also when I look over at my shelf dedicated to her beautiful pieces!
