Announcement    Welcome to my Etsy shop thank you for visiting. You will find many wonderfully handmade unique items of art, there is something for everyone.Everything in this shop was made by me and has a story, except the honey, The honey is collected from our bee hives. Most of my sculptures have a description written that includes its story. Those are the stories I share with you when I am asked what inspired me.

I am constantly working on adding more inventory to my shop. Check back often to see whats new. Due to Covid all my shows have been canceled. I will be putting most of what I have available in this shop. Many items that I have never put in my Etys shop because they sold so well at my shows. Take advantage of my free shipping for orders over $35.

Look for two of my sculptures in the 500 Figures in Clay volume 2.

See my sculpture featured on the cover of American Art Collector 2012 http://www.alcovebooks.net/submit.html

My ceramic sculptures are created with earthenware clay using ancient hand building techniques. Combining slabs, coil, and pinch methods I create the unique sculptured items you see in my shop. Most of my surfaces are highly textured and are enhanced by the various glazes and metal oxides I like to use. Each piece is fired at least once to 1971 degrees (cone 04) or as many as 5 times to achieve unique finishes. Using the clay as my canvas I sometimes use post fired finishes like acrylic paint, colored pencils, gold finishes, and wax encaustic.

The lanquage of dreams

After working in the horticulture field for over 20 years another form of mud captured my attention. Never thinking that making things out of clay would become my full time occupation. I began making pots for my Bonsai collection. One thing lead to another and eventually I began teaching clay techniques to others as I learned. My work has evolved and continues to do so. I stay very busy exhibiting and creating my work. I feel very fortunate to be able to spend my time being creative and sharing what I do with others.

    Over 20 years ago my journey with clay began. I was expanding my collection of Bonsai trees and decided i wanted some artfully unique pots to put them in. One way to get what I wanted was to make then myself. Easier said than done.
