A Brief Article in Ceramics Monthly – by Nancy Gallagher!

Screen Printed Graphic Transfers on Clay

Once upon a time, I started out as a graphic designer. In the dark ages. Really.

I haven’t had much time to update the blog at all this Summer, but my big news is, a new studio is underway for the pottery! For those who have actually seen the small space I have to work with (literally two 4×8 strips, partly overlapping in an ‘L’ shape), this space looks huge to me and hopefully will promote lots more pot-making! It started with...
