Announcement   Hi Welcome to my shop and thanks for stopping in!! All pieces are handmade exclusively by me.

My new studio is up and running. It's a little slow going as I work to get the workspace flow just right. In the meantime I will add more items to my shop as they become available. Another new development is that in my new location I will be doing more raku work. Stay tuned.

Handmade pottery and ceramics, wheel-thrown and hand-built creations.

The mug fit perfectly into my husbands hands and is his favorite for Joe or Tea. He uses it everyday. Beautiful, rich colored glaze , comfortable handle and the shape beacons you to cradle it in both hands. Thank you for making wonderful pottery.

Second night light. Some of the stars were glazed in but I like the added black in the sheep

About

Accidental Artist due to corporate downsizing in Texas and other such things

In 2006 had recently moved to a new city and was building my new studio. I was out of the loop regarding any local artist groups at the time but knew I needed a creative space.

In 1996 I started doing pottery because I lived on the coast of Oregon and it rained a lot. I needed something to do that was not in the rain. I took a community pottery class and that was the beginning.

What I really love about having my home studio in Central Oregon is that I can go into it anytime of the day and night. So o.k. sometimes I run down there in my pajamas in the middle of the night to check on the kiln or to cover pieces to allow it to dry slowly. But, hey! It works for me!

I like to say that I'm a closet pyromaniac since I love fire so much. The instant gratification of raku is crazy cool! Raku pieces are fired outside in a propane gas kiln. It's take to 1800 to 1850 degrees. The gas is then turned off and the pieces are taken out red hot using iron tongs. It's then placed in a reduction can with shredded newspaper and or pine needles. The hot piece will instantly set the paper on fire. A lid is then placed over the can to smoke the pottery and allowed to cool. This sets the glaze.

I use a mid range clay which means I fire to 2165 degrees for my functional pieces. I'm always experimenting with forms or glazes. Sometimes it works out and sometimes not. That's the beauty or the beast of being a ceramic artist. On the days I get to unload the electric kiln.....it's like Christmas.

    2 year old sadie is another furry one to keep company in my studio. She makes sure I take enough breaks to throw the ball chuck for her in order to keep this potter from working in one position too long.
