~Featured Artist Lenni~ When creating a functional piece of pottery on the potters wheel, Lenni is always keeping in mind how each creation can be a useful item as well as a piece of art. To her, that is the difference between something handmade and something mass produced in a factory. Her whole life has been about art. She started working with clay 10 years ago after selling her flower shop in New Jersey. Each finished piece of pottery takes many hours of work. It all starts with a lump of clay, (stoneware or porcelain), and a wedge, then it's thrown on a potters wheel. Then she turns it over and trims well when it's as hard as leather. The piece must slowly dry before being bisque fired for 12 hours. Then each piece is glazed with multiple colors and fired at 2300° for an additional 12 hours. Lenni has loved working with clay from the first time she sat at a potters wheel and it started to turn in her hands.
