Rekindling Creativity

I attended the University of Delaware in my early 20's. Science always interested me as a child, but I had decided to major in my passion. It took a little time to get there, but I finally graduated with a BFA in printmaking. Coming to the end of my senior year, I come to the realization that all of my artwork centered around the sciences. My love for biology, microbiology, and anatomy and physiology shown through my art. References to cells, tumors, bones, bacteria, and pathology took center stage in everything that I created. I took the plunge and went back to school to focus on the sciences. I immersed myself in my studies and my new career. My artistic creative side fell to the wayside.

Since then, I felt like there was something missing in my life. There was something crucial lacking. I found my way back to the arts through ceramics. Initially, I started to spend more time with my mother. Little did I know that I would find a passion inside that I thought had withered away.

Here I am a few years later, ceramics consumes every moment of my free time. This etsy shop is a way to keep me from filling my entire house with ceramics and other creations.

When you decide to purchase an item that means you are obligated to pay for it as well. If you decide not to pay for it I will convo with a reminder. If you do not respond within 2 days I will cancel the sale.
Shipping
I try to use recycled materials or to reuse materials for shipping. In this day and age of internet shopping there are so many shipping materials that are only used once and then thrown into land fills. I take donations of used shipping materials from my friends and family. I avoid buying plastic to ship, most plastic shipping materials are reused. This is very important to me. How I feel about the sustainability of shipping greatly outweighs the aesthetics of my shipped boxes. Hopefully the items themselves and the love and intention that went into their creation will make up for some ugly (but sturdy) packaging. If you want to spread the love please reuse or recycle the shipping materials sent with your purchase. :)

I will only ship you item after receiving your payment. I will try to ship as promptly as possible, but allow me three to five business days from when I receive your payment. If there is something that you need shipped immediately feel free to let me know. I don't mind catering to your needs.

I ship through the United States Postal service. If you would like extra insurance please let me know by sending me a convo.
