The flowers were so cute! And the seller was amazing to work with. She lived so close to me and took the time to message me. I was able to pick up my items and received a refund on shipping. Above and beyond care!

These little worms are adorable. So creative and clever. They are exactly like the photo. Wonderful gift for my gardener friend. Thank you for the little butterfly that was also enclosed.

How it began.
20 years ago,
While throwing a vase on the potters wheel with some extremely wet clay, the vase fell over and was smashed. Instead of discarding it and starting over, I stretched it out, added some fins, and transformed my smashed vase into a fish. It was from that first smashed vase that Pond Scum, Inc was born.
Most of the pieces begin as wheel thrown vessels. The vessels are altered and appendages are attached to form some creature. Each piece is kiln fired to 2165 Degrees, a temperature that helps provide strength to the piece.
The finish on each piece is a base coat of acrylic paint with ceramic stains and textured acrylic paint detailing. I prefer using acrylic paints over traditional ceramic glazes because they afford me a much wider range of color which adds to the WHIMSY of my work.
Having been formally schooled at the John Herron School of Art at Indiana University with a Fine Arts Degrees in Sculputure and Ceramics in 1989. I spent many years working with clay and creating traditional vessel forms.
