Can I contact you with questions?
Yes, I am happy to share what I have learned over the years. Please email me using the form above or send a direct message through my Instagram handle, @lesliemademe
Do you take commissions?
Not currently but I am open to the possibility.
What clay body do you use?
Primarily Laguna Big White
What glazes do you use?
I use a variety of Laguna, Aardvark and Georgie’s raku glazes, often in combination. I also make frequent use of a mystery glaze that I inherited from a studio that was closing (and boy will I miss it when it’s all used up!)
How do you fire your work?
I bisque fire to cone 08 in oxidation. I raku fire to cone 06 (1830F), using newspaper and undyed excelsior as my combustibles.
How long does it take to make one of your pieces?
Decades. There is a whole lifetime of experience in every one of them.
