Melissa Weiss is a studio potter located in Asheville, NC. Melissa digs her own clay off her land in NW Arkansas. She turns this clay into a slip, and screens the big rocks out; adding dry clays, feldspar and sand. Next, she takes this liquid clay and pours it into screened racks lined with sheets to let the water drip out. She uses a variety of methods to make the pots: wheel thrown, pinched, and slab constructed. These artist-made glazes are a variety of celadons and ash glazes.
