Like the earthenware coffee mug. Two things would entice me to buy again: 1) up-size the cup to 10 ounces (mug is too small). 2) MORE PRONOUNCED sky-blue glaze. Cup would be bolder and more handsome! Change those 2 things and I'll buy again! :-) Thanks

Amazing that these two pieces arrived undamaged with a fist size hole in the box from the postal service. All due to Amy's perfect packaging! Love this little dish! Thanks so much Amy!

About

Durable, Functional & Beautiful

My shop is filled with functional pottery. The pottery pieces I have made are intended to be handled, used and enjoyed.

I make pottery using my pottery wheel then add texture designs to the clay. I layer my glazes so that when they are fired they flow and intermingle around the textures to create interesting color combinations. Each piece of pottery is original and unique.

Forty years of working with clay is just a beginning. My pottery continues to evolve as I am inspired to try new things. Each piece of pottery in my shop is something I am proud of.

    All of the pottery in my shop was thrown, fired and glazed by me. I feel fortunate to be able to spend my time doing something I love. I hope you enjoy my pottery as much as I enjoy making it.
