The Talking Clay Field Trip series was started in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, as a learning tool for potters who were suddenly left without access to a studio, or students and teachers who found themselves thrust into remote learning. Hosted by Simon Levin, the field trips feature great conversations, some demonstrations, and a peek into the studios of some of the greatest makers in our field.

  • Michelle you are a breath of fresh air and down to earth kind of lady. I love your work because I can relate to your messages. I am a latin lady myself and lived in Brooklyn for 12 years. I love working with Clay high fire and low fire .Hope you are invited back soon.

    Awesome Inspiration! I love earthenware and really want to return to it, currently trapped with the studio regulations – no low fire 🙁 Finally have my own wheel, dreaming of a kiln. Thanks so much for sharing your work and life. Keep creating…….waiting for new items on your Etsy store 🙂

    Michelle, you are a breath of fresh air. Bravo to Ceramic Arts Network for continuing to provide an intimate understanding of this artist’s process and context. I enjoyed the video very much.

    Loved your presentation. Your work reminds me of my own experiences growing up in project housing and going to public school in NYC. You are an inspiration to us all.

  • Susan M.

    Thank you, Michelle, for your demonstration. I watched after the initial presentation, and hadn’t thought of firing again after the line work but before the clear. The line work does degrade sometimes because I don’t. Now I know how to hopefully fix that for sharper lines. I like your drawing and the relevancy of your subject matter.
