Step right up

I started this shop as a place to show some of my work ,as I tend to be reclusive and secretive about it. Social media did wonders for me and millions of introverts and when it became too crowded I quit that too.
I met great people on Etsy in the old, old times and forged friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.
I wish I could say this shop is a business but it's more like an extension of my studio. If I like you I might drag you in and give you cup after cup of strong drinks and ask all kinds of things about your life.

i work in stoneware and porcelain mid and high fire temperatures. I use dinnerware safe glazes , keep coloring to a minimum and everything can be put in the dishwasher
I like crazed surfaces , I will make a note of items that will develop acre zed pattern with use, "tea staining"
decals are iron based fired and safe to use
gold, platinum and silver accents are metals fired on the pot and they should not be in the microwave. I also recommend hand washing to prevent dulling in time.
