Sarah Wallace

Allow me to introduce to you this week's Artist Spotlight: Sarah Wallace!

Located in the charming rural town of Higginsville, Missouri - located about 40 minutes East of Kansas City - Sarah enjoys honing her craft of wheel thrown pottery.

Starting at the ripe age of 9 years old, Sarah was introduced to ceramics through the 4-H youth development program. From there on, she was hooked and continued to take classes all throughout High School and College.

"Even though I went to college and got my degree in Economics and Personal Finance I spent most of my free time in college in the Ceramics classroom. I continue to learn new techniques from Pinterest and YouTube. What would we do without the internet?"

Every artist needs proper tools and equipment, Sarah is using an Evenheat RM II 1822 kiln and a Speedball Clay Boss pottery wheel.

Every time I open my kiln it's like Christmas. It is always a surprise!

Asking what drew her to to the craft, Sarah exclaimed, "I love how involved you are in ceramics - the process is like baking, construction, chemistry and art all combined. Every time I open my kiln it's like Christmas. It is always a surprise!"

Sarah draws inspiration from a variety of sources, but her favorite artist has always Claude Monet.

"I like to call what I make Functional Art. Artistic, unique things that you can actually use. Beautiful pieces you can display and use. Almost everything I make is microwave, oven and dishwasher safe."

Sarah originally jumped into pottery as a hobby, but as her collection grew - she decided too turn it into a small business. Her work can be found at a number of local craft fairs, as well as her Etsy store Lily Jude Pottery.

"I named my Etsy shop after my two kids Lily and Jude. I hope that they will have the courage to follow their passions and know that it is ok to step outside the box and do what they love."

Olympic Kiln - 146 Slider
Steven Hewitt (Columbia, US)
Can’t wait to fire this kiln.

The new Olympic kiln I ordered is well made with a good thickness to the wall with a state of the arts tempreature controller just what you need for firing up the glass components needed to create the projects in my mind’s eye. Luckily I will not be works larger than 12 inches square since the interior usable space is actually 14 inches square. This is the type of information that may cause folks to purchase larger interior space kiln.

Speedball Boss Splash Pan
William Kaplan (San Leandro, US)
Soul Ceramics is Awesome!!!

I was surprised that Soul stocked this hard to find splashpan. They shipped out quickly but FedEx delayed delivery for a few days. Soul Ceramics customer service was on top of it and got it straightened out and delivered. I highly recommend Soul Ceramics!

Evenheat Knife Oven - KO 22.5
Marc Chord (Portland, US)
Works great

Even heat 22.5 ko came 100%assembled and ready to go. Went with quite relays and temp only deviates +~4deg. Great service and response from soul ceramics when I had one little problem when it was totally my screw up

Evenheat Knife Oven - KH 418
Daniel Schulze (Milwaukee, US)
Kiln worked good.

My only complaint is that the door mount is a sloppy design. The door sits crooked and a mistake screw hole was drilled. I will fix it eventually but for the money I spent a little more care should have went into it.

Evenheat Heat Treat Oven - LB 27
Alex Coward (San Dimas, US)
The LB 27 oven.

This team is awesome, TJ, Alex, & Lea took care of all the transactions, ordering, Q&A, additional parts, Shipping etc. Kept me up to date weekly as the manufacturing process did increase. These small companies Evenheat and Soul ceramics are true MADE IN THE USA companies. I would absolutely recommend them. I love my LB27. I can now make 2 foot gold bars
