I love it! This is beautifully crafted and so unique! It looks perfect with the rest of my collection of your wonderful pottery. The photo only tells half of the story. You have to see this in person to realize just how much time and work went into creating this little planter vase. There is so much detail and it is lovely no matter which side you chose to display. I know you featured the buttons but the back is so detailed that I have turned it half a dozen times trying to decide which one I wanted. I have a feeling this one will get turned around quite often. All of your work is fantastic. I hope that you will continue to play with clay. Thank you so much! I am glad this waited for me to purchase it.

About

Kittinger Clay

Everyone has something in life that they ‘need’ to do. I need to express myself artistically. Through the years I’ve had many ways that I’ve done that. When my boys were young I began hand-painting clothing before it was even a popular art/craft show thing. I’ve made beads and pins with Fimo and Sculpey clay for many years. Tile mosaics kept my attention for a while. Recently I also became very involved with wood burning (pyrography) on plaques and gourds.

About 12 years ago, with the death of a loved one, I needed something that I could totally immerse myself in. I took a pottery class at a city recreation facility. I was hooked! It provided me with something to totally concentrate on and lose myself in. When carving clay hours seem like minutes. Carving has become my ‘me’ and meditation time. At night when waiting for sleep new carving patterns and ideas flit through my head. When my husband sees a far away look in my eyes he comments, ‘You’re thinking about pottery (carving), aren’t you?’ He has golf, I have pottery!

By day, for the past 14 years, I am a Long Term Care Ombudsman for the Area Agency on Aging. I am a resident rights expert for people in nursing homes and personal care. I help them with complaints and mediate between them and the facility administration. I absolutely love this job and that is the reason that I’m not a full time clay carver!

Whenever someone comments that they like my pottery and style of work I’m truly amazed! I just can’t believe that what I consider to be doodling in clay is art?!

Thank you for your interest in my clay. Please keep checking back at my site…. my brain keeps ticking with ideas for carvings!
