"Schoolhouses are made wrong. If they must be,they should be built in a woods pasture beside a stream....You ought to learn your georaphy by climbing a hill,walking through a vally,wading creeks....You should do your arithmetic sitting under a tree adding hickory nuts,subtracting walnuts,multiplying butternuts, and dividing hazelnuts. You could use apples for fractions..You could spell everything in sight and this would teach you the words that are really used..."

I'm currently finishing my new studio...and acclimating myself to the Midwest..after living in California for ever




Here we go again,Im having a time filling this out! I have been making things forever and a day.
Studied BFA in clay. Have been in many gallery shows and am in lots of collections.All pcs are handmade by myself.I am a firing fool, by that I mean that I LOVE firing kilns. Ive done salt,wood,raku,soda highfire,lowfire..you name it and Ive pretty much have fired at that range. Why? Well I want to be able to choose what type of glaze and atmosphere to use for a paticular idea. More later.

I was the ACS-So California President for 2 years. Am still active via e-mail

Have studied Ohara school of Ikebana for 5 years with Noriko Naurishi!

I use recycled packing materials!

I accept checks,money orders and Paypal If using checks or money orders ,please note that there will be a time lapse in shipping order!(3 days after recieving payment) paypal orders will be sent asap after payment goes through.

Please notify happlake immediately if there is damage in shipping..I will insure most work,so it might be necessary to document packing.

**** I use parcel post for shipping ,and the packages take much longer than just an envelope,between 2-9 days...sometimes the PO takes a few days longer.
** if you want to ship Priority please convo me and I will bill you for the xtra cost.

Any questions?? Please convo me at any time!

Thanks...happylake

Etsy Project Embrace (EPE) is a Universal Coalition of Artists whose main purpose is to create awareness and support for people who have been diagnosed and are suffering with Cancer, whatever kind it may be. Together as a Team we are unified in reaching out to others by creating Treasuries, posting in our personal blogs and shop announcements, sharing personal stories, comfort and knowledge to those in need...this is the core of what EPE stands for! We have an EPE fundraiser page on the American Cancer Society (ACS) website and Team Members are encouraged, but not required, to list items in their shops with the etsyprojectembrace tag in order to donate the profits, or percentage of profits, for cancer research. As the future unfolds for EPE we have every confidence our horizons will grow more expansive to include other cancer related donation alternatives. Together, with caring, hope, compassion and love we can create awareness and make a difference! If you have any questions about our Team, would like to join us in an official capacity, or just find out more about how you can help, please do not hesitate to contact me!!

We have a glorious Team Homepage where you can read more about us and see who we are: http://team.etsy.com/viewteam.php?id=685
