I’ve made my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe so often, I know it by heart. It was given to me by a former neighbor many years ago. In turn, I’ve shared it with others as well. I don’t know the exact science behind the success of this particular recipe, but I do know that it produces a reliable, delicious treat each time I make it.
For me, working in clay is a little bit like baking. I know the desired outcome so I’ve practiced techniques and combinations of ingredients to achieve a reliable product. Again, there is absolute science behind the success; I’ve learned by adjusting some of the components of my creations from time to time, I can achieve the most dependable combination of clay and glazes to complement my creations.
This week I’ve been trying a different brand of clay to test the results with the variety of glazes I use. As with my baking, I may return to the blueprint I’ve used in the past or learn something new from this process that will make every firing favorable. There are always new combinations to explore!
Try my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for yourself! Please share your favorite recipes with me as well. I love experimenting in the kitchen almost as much as I do in the studio!
