5 out of 5 stars
(14)

Announcement   All of my pieces are completely handmade, either on the potter's wheel or through handbuilding methods. Each piece is unique. All of my work is food-safe, microwave and dishwasher safe and made for frequent use.
It's important to me that what I make gets used in everyday life....hand made things just feel better!

I live in the California desert in Rancho Mirage. I often photograph my pieces in front of a huge tumble weed I found rolling along the road near my house. It's now a piece of art that sits in the corner of my living room and it too has become functional!

I use both white and colored stoneware clay and make my own glazes which are non toxic and lead free. All my work is fired to 2400 degrees in either an electric or reduction kiln allowing it to be used in the dishwasher and microwave and to be water tight.....no rings on your tables! In addition to throwing pieces on a pottery wheel some of my more recent work is molded or sIab built and texturized.

I hope you will buy my pottery, use it often and enjoy it always!

I am happy to ship to overseas buyers, please message me and we can discuss shipping prices.

About

From Misery to Magic!

After I had been making ceramics for a few years I wanted a place to sell my pieces besides the occasional shows at College of the Desert near where I live. I really don't know how I discovered Etsy but I think the site is perfect for craftspeople, the site is so attractive and the support is incredible.

I started with only a few pieces and still don't have more than a page of pots since I give many away to friends and have just begun to throw nearly every day so hopefully the number will improve. Also, the process from the beginning of the piece to its completion can be many weeks.....potters like a full kiln before they fire so a pot may be completed workwise but the final firing is often delayed. But..... the excitement of opening the kiln is like Christmas! You never know how many wonderful and sometime disappointing pots you will find.

Learning to throw on the potter's wheel did not come easily to me. I was often frustrated but I kept going back to school during studio hours to perfect my technique. I had been told that to become a good (but not excellent) potter took about 10 years so that idea helped me to continue....it hadn't been THAT long!

I think when I really saw an improvement in my work was when I started to throw at my friend Steve's studio. He also iniIally got the bug for potting in college but that was back in the 1960's! He has taught at College of the Redwoods up in Mendocino, California so working alongside a terrific potter everyday not only improves my work but inspires my designs.

Working in clay is ever evolving and there is really no end to the improvement and creatively that flow when you love what you are doing.....it took awhile but now I do love the whole process: from throwing, texturing the surface, glazing and firing in the kiln. Each step improves the next pot that is created.

I know you will love anything you buy from me the way i love making it!

I live in the California desert in Rancho Mirage. I hope you enjoy my pottery. It's high fired and can go in the dishwasher, microwave and oven. I use both porcelain and storeware clays and make my own glazes which are non toxic and lead free. They are thrown on a potter's well and are one of a kind.
