About

Hand made pottery bowls, recycled bottle art and pine needle baskets

I started designing, creating, and selling ceramics 23 years ago. My main venue was word of mouth and arts and crafts shows. In 1995 I took a ceramic course at the University of Wisconsin at Washington County. I deepened my knowledge and craftsmanship in all the aspects of ceramics. I also realized the potential found in the potter’s wheel. I ended up buying one and now most of what I sell at the art shows is wheel thrown bowls or slab platters. All the designs are my original designs. They are food, dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. I have won various ribbons and trophies with my pottery in the Cerix Ceramic Shows.
In 2006 I started making stoneware jewelry. They are each uniquely glazed so no two are alike.
In 2008 I started slumping bottles. They are recycled and made into cheese platters and dishes you can use them for cheese, crackers, olives, lemons, etc. You can also use them to hold keys, change and jewelry.
After attending the basket conventions I expanded my talents to teaching and making the pine needle baskets at IL, IN, KY, MO, MI and WI basket weaving conventions. I teach how to make pine needle baskets using pottery bases at basket shops and basket conventions. I do about 15 art shows a year and 5 basket conventions. I am continually coming up with new one of a kind pottery bases for them.
In 2014 I learned wool felt applique. I started making some coaster, pin cushions, eye glass holders and table runners to sell.They are gifts made of love.

Welcome! I make all of my items one at a time. Have been making pottery for over 22 years. Love nature and it reflects my one of a kind fern, flower and leaf functional pottery. American home crafted.

All my pottery is food safe, microwave, oven & dishwasher safe.

I have taught the pine needle baskets at conventions and guilds for 10 years in WI, MI, IN, MO, IL & KY. Sally was the first one to incorporate pine needle with pottery. They compliment each other.
