For information about materials and processes, the section called "Collected Mud Stories" drop-down menu is where I share what information was passed to me by donors of sediments. Search or click Joan Lederman's Blog.

This is a well-edited book (thanks to Christiana Walford) about leadership, about inventing a life. It's about how I navigated through a two-decade escapade with sea-mud-melting. Some how-to seekers might be disappointed that I summarized glazing in one sentence, "I adjust the form, the application, the thickness, the claybody, the firing, the juxtaposition to other glazes, to make what could happen actually emerge." I couldn't manage the chaos of getting more specific about how to handle each material. If you need to know more, bring me to your work space and I'll do what I can to shorten your success time.
