About Me

Introduction

My name in Raylene,  from San Diego CA and I have been from New Mexico,  Tucson Arizona,  Los Angeles and briefly Champlin Minnesota. I’m very passionate about ceramics and plan on becoming an online ceramic business person.

What I Love about Ceramics

Everything!!!!!!

How I started with ceramics

Back in the years of living in Arizona I was taking lapidary classes, jewelry Silversmith classes and wanted to add making clay beads to my jewelry making experience so I signed up for a ceramic class at the Randolph center and the Udall Center and ended up falling in love.  I love the whole ceramic thing!  I am in love with pottery.

What inspires me

Other potters, so many talented artists and creative people out there! I am inspired by the studio owners that make a living in the ceramic world, the potters that create on-line pages, my instructors and the works by Vincent Garcia,  Simon Leach and others I’ve seen at the first for me, the Ceramic Congress of 2020

What I'm working on at the moment

Putting together a home studio and on-line site, offering an array of functional pottery.
