Little Buddies Bud Vases - Pastel Celadon 4 Pack



The creamy color of yucca in June’s bloom. Canning in Grandma’s old blue jars. The chunky stitches on a patchwork heirloom quilt. A snapshot memory of my Dad twisting the gate wire with pliers from his back pocket. The old barn we've passed by the last 20 years. My daughters’ no-rules approach to color and finger-paints. The calming green of my new bath towels. A geometric print hanging in my closet. The fairy wings/seed pods hanging from our backyard trees.

These are just a few of my life’s influences revealed when I create pottery. My pottery is thrown on the wheel and often has hand applied embellishments. I use several different clays and glazes to achieve my designs and fire in electric kilns. I strive to make pieces that capture the spirit of my many inspirations while offering my customers diversity in design. Sometimes I favor the starkness of white on white, and sometimes I just need a pop of color. And I think my customers like variety, too.

Thank you for your interest in Sundance Clayworks. I enjoy exploring different clays and firing methods, but right now my focus is functional stoneware. I am inspired by my Wyoming native flora but also use cultivated plant life in my work which grows in our Zone 3-4 climate. Seasonally (summer and fall) I also throw and fire Raku pieces. Please review each listing’s description for suitability with food and drink.
