So excited to be included in another pottery book…
“THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF POTTERY TECHNIQUES”
by author Peter Cosentino.

It’s a great collection of potters making beautiful work with all different techniques.
Page 60 is all about stamping… err, “Impressing” as they apparently call it across The Pond…
and Page 61 is all about ME!!!

Thrilled to see two of my “impressed” & soda-fired bowls take up an entire page! AMAZING!
Thanks for including me Search Press as my work has now been published internationally!!!
