I am so pleased with this beautiful communion set. It came carefully wrapped and it's even better than the photographs. I contacted the seller with questions and she responded promptly and thoroughly. I have saved this shop as "favorite" for future orders! Thanks!
Two goats and our life in the country
Henry and Ruby are Saanan goats and my husband and I adopted them in 2010 as little kids. They would run and bounce around like they had springs in their hooves. We took them on walks in the woods behind our farmhouse in upstate New York and loved them dearly. During this period I began making pottery and stationary from our farmhouse home. I studied wheel-throwing at UPenn and the University of Delaware, but had never set up my own studio. I found a wheel on Craigslist and transformed half of my kitchen into a pottery.
Just this past fall we have turned our lives upside down temporarily as I complete my Masters of Divinity at Candler School of Theology in Atlanta. Although we have moved from our beloved farmhouse home and have left Ruby and Henry with family friends, I'm continuing to make art. I now work at a ceramic cooperative called Mudfire and I'm enjoying trying out the different clays and glazes they offer.
My work is inspired by the rural landscape and farm life we left in New York and hope to return to soon. Thanks for stopping by!

I live in Upstate New York with my husband and two goats, Henry and Ruby. I work to express in my craft the strong relationship I feel between place, culture and the natural environment.
I am inspired by clean and simple forms and the beauty of tradition in everyday practice. I have been throwing pots for fifteen years as a side interest while attending school and working as a historian. Although I've spent the last couple years working on a wheel in my farmhouse kitchen, we moved to Atlanta this year for me to attend seminary and I now work out of the Mudfire cooperative studio in Decatur.
Paper crafting is becoming a new love of mine. I have for years worked with fabric and just recently began combing fabric with paper. It all began when I took scraps from a wedding quilt I was making for my brother and sister-in-law and turned them into shower invitations. I'm fascinated by the textures of fabric on paper and the many possibility this art form offers!
