Jill uses both medium format film cameras and digital formats to create her images. This is how the artist describes her work: “My work is a reflection of everyday life and places. I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

Muddin' with Becky!

Yesterday I took Skye and went up to visit my friend Becky at her home.  Just to hang, wedge some clay, throw some pots...  

It was so much fun!  Skye was such a good doggie.  

I threw a pot on the wheel - haven't done that in line 15+ years!  It turned out okay... It's usable anyway!  Hopefully it will make it through drying and firing... we shall see!  :)

I helped Becky wedge some grog into a whole mess of clay, which was quite a workout.  I really felt the clay-love this morning when I woke up... whoa!  

Here are some shots from the afternoon visit.  Can't wait to do it again!!!

Yay! I'm so glad you came out... you're welcomed to come hang in the studio any time... and so is Skye, such a good woofer! :)

P.S. I think it's funny that you call sore muscles from wedging 'clay-love'. :D
