Temple Jars are the most popular seller in my Eugene studio gallery, and shops that carry the work in Ashland, Yachats, and San Francisco. A neighborhood tea shop sold quite a few as tea stash vessels. Everyone asks what are they for, what else can do you put in them? The answer is varied. I use several each for salt, dental floss, spare keys, wooden checkers. i have a few at home and large ones in my studio for loose tea. Customers love them for everything ranging from alters to candy kisses. Hundreds sold over ten years and each is a different as a snowflake. Made of stoneware they get their luscious colors in 2400F fire in my natural gas kiln. Copper green glaze lends patina and antiquity. Toasty colored clay adds great warmth to the form. The feet are impressed with eucalyptus pods from the trees at the Academy of Science in San Francisco. Altered on the sides so they are a joy to hold. All handmade in honor of misty mountain Asian temples. A fantastic gift for all occasions.

Sandra McPherson writes on etsy, "Really nice! The colors of a sea lion off the Oregon coast. It's in a place where the light will show it to me every day."

Dorothy in Maryland adds, "Just bought your most recently-listed Temple Jar. I really like your work, obviously. Will be posting feedback on Etsy, and feel free to use whatever I say to you as well."
