Joyce Martin's Profile

About

I am a retired nurse educator that loves working with textiles and ceramics. I had intended to open a ceramic shop when I retired but it didn.t happen. Life just got in the way. I especially enjoy making functional pieces. My husband helps with all the ceramics. The molds are too heavy for me to lift so he gracefully does all the pouring and firing for me. I do all the cleaning, sculpting, and art work. We make a lot of yarn bowls and some african violet pots. Hopefully, we will be listing some violet pots soon along with more yarn bowls. It's just been too hot to fire the kilns. Our pieces are all signed "Joy Bill and the year made" on the back.
I am an avid quilter and usually give these to family and friends but have decided to list some of them.
I also enjoy shopping for antique and vintage items, usually with my granddaughter, CaitLyne. I am never bored. I stay very busy with church, family…
