About

Liferaft!

I moved to NE Indiana in 2007,after 27 years in SO CAL. I found Etsy in 2008..and what a life raft that was. The first winter was so tough,what with cultural shock and extremely harsh weather. I spent hours trying to figure out my shop.

Ive had art studios and shown in galleries and museums,this was new to be online selling. I'm still learning. Its good to be back...I may not sell a bunch here ,but I do have fun. You may see see of my more wacky sculpture too!

Handmade clay work is just such a great thing to have in ones home..I use only handmade mugs for my coffee,tea,etc. Many of my mugs are from fellow Etsy shop owners ,or from potters I know. Please support handmade! There is something so unique and precious in holding a stoneware/porcelain/earthenware cup/mug/tumbler in your hands..to know that this item is created from a handful of clay on up to the finishing glaze firing. Another clay worker told me he counted the steps in creating a pc..32!

All my work is either hand thrown on my wheel,handbuilt..or combined..or sometimes (alot of times) I will alter a thrown form. You can see that in the first shot ..the "Underwater Vessels".

I do show in galleries,art shows and museums too.
I will time to time announce where Im showing.
The latest is a a show called "A river Runs Through" ,myself and 5 painters,at the Wabash Hoosier Gallery Salon,the oldest art organization in Indiana(from 1905!)

I do teach some classes and teach privately in my studio as well. This summer I am creating an art program at the Community Center in my little town.

Thanks for stopping by my shop!
