My story ... so far!
Each piece in my shop is made one-by-one with my own two hands, my four eyes and a lot of love. With a few simple tools, an old piece of burlap, an old doily, a potters wheel or a slab roller, clay takes shape.. I mix my own food-safe glazes and fire in my kiln. Glaze firings reach 2172 degrees F.
I am a studio potter and mostly self-taught, but classes in a catacomb-like basement of an old mansion many years ago and recent classes in an old vocational building have provided me with wonderful teachers, insight, and new friends.
My old studio was the dining room table, and it worked just fine, but now I have a little workshop out back. We call it the Phoenix shop because it literally rose from the ashes ... lemonade out of lemons!
Etsy has provided me with an opportunity to share what I make with others and is also one of the ways to let go (reluctantly sometimes) of the pottery piling up on the shelves at home. I also try to sell 2-3 times a year a local shows.
Hoping to re-open my shop soon, so please visit again!

Additional policies and FAQs
ALWAYS be careful when removing hot pottery from microwaves/ovens and remember that candle holders get hot, too. Thermal shock is not kind to pottery, so pottery is not for use on a stove top. For the same reason, do not place cold pottery in an already heated oven - warm the piece along with the oven.
I have done my best to photograph my work, but please remember that colors and hues vary on device screens.
