Beautiful fermenting vessel. The craftsmanship is top notch, even better than what I was expecting. This was a gift for my father and he was in awe of the quality of the piece. It's so nice it's almost a shame to make kimchi in it, but we are 5 days into our first batch and this is quite possibly the best fermenter either of us have ever seen or used.

About

My life in clay

One of my earliest memories I have was when I was in kindergarden. Our big assignment was a pinch pot. My love for clay started there. I have been actively making things out of clay ever since. If you do not believe me, ask my Mom! I moved up to Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA in 1985. My major at the time was fisheries, but I was certainly a closet art major. The only fisheries class I took was tropical aquarium management! I eventually switched majors.

I have a degree from Humboldt State University in art teaching 1992. My emphasis in college was ceramics. I studied under Louis Marak, Keith Schneider, Jim Crawford, and even Michael Lucero.

I consider myself a studio potter. I have a small studio at my house and more or less work in seclusion. Thankfully for the internet, I have hundreds of clay buddies that I communicate with daily. I love to make functional pottery that is thought provoking. Everything I make has some kind of playful element. I think of each piece I make as more than some kind of vessel, and even try to make each pot tell its own story.

It brings me a lot of joy to know now that my work has made it all over the United States as well as a few other countries. My influences come from a lot of places. I am always looking at things that give me a lot of ideas and inspirations. My largest influence with my sculptures comes from Michael Lucero and Pablo Picasso. Beatrice Wood would be another one of my favorites, as I love folk art too!

I fire from a range of cone 04 to cone 10. All of my cook ware, bowls, cups, or plates are lead free and food safe. All is microwave and dishwasher safe as well. I hope you like my work and would love any feedback that is given! Even if you do not buy anything, I would love to hear from you with your opinion. Also, I am willing to do just about any custom work you might be looking for. I can do any size, shape, color, or have something painted on a piece if you wish.

    I am a studio potter. I like to have the pieces i made portray some kind of fun element. I love to make thought provoking pieces. I even make pots that tell a story. I have a BFA in ceramics from Humboldt State University.

Thank you for looking at my shop. I would like to think that I do a little extra on my work than with the generic production pottery that you see all of the time. Even if you do not buy anything from me, I would love to hear from you and respond to any message very quickly.

Payment is expected at the time of purchase. When making a payment through paypal or direct direct checkout please continue through all steps until you have a receipt.
It is much easier and less time consuming to set up an Etsy account before making a purchase. This can save you a lot of frustration when making your purchase.
I will also accept money orders and personal checks. I cannot ship an order until the payment is received and a check has cleared my bank.
ShippingI ship all orders USPS. Orders over $50.00 will automatically be insured.

Shipping
I usually ship everything USPS or FedEx, unless you would like it sent through another carrier. Please send me a message, and I would be happy to send it some other way. I usually use bubble wrap, newspaper, and recycled cardboard boxes to ship. If I overcharged for shipping, I will refund the difference to your paypal or shop payment account. I will always provide a tracking number with the shipment and will send that to you in a message . .
Refunds and Exchanges
I want all of my customers to be happy with their purchase. I will gladly issue a refund within 7 day of purchase. The item must be shipped back to me intact at the purchaser's expense before a refund will be issued.

I cannot be responsible for misuse of pottery. Bakeware should be used as directed for long life. Always put in a cold oven and let the bakeware heat up as the oven does. Never put cold or partially frozen food in a casserole or roaster and put it in a hot oven.
