Clay wall vases and serving dishes with inlaid vintage lace designs.

"Pretty Pottery" has been in existence for over 40 years. It started out as a hobby. Now, I have a highly, functional studio in the rear of my home. It's my haven where I work to build up inventory for fine art and craft shows and for Etsy.

The inspiration for my work came from a love of the beautiful lace patterns I found in vintage shops. When I started working with clay, I originally started with throwing pots on a kick wheel. I hated it. It was dirty, messy and hard to do. I persisted for awhile then gave up and started throwing out slabs of clay. It was then that I took a lace doily my grandmother had given me on my wedding day. I laid it on the clay and rolled the impression into the clay with a rolling pin. That was it. From that point on all of my pieces had a lace impression.

Originally, my clay buisness name was Treasured Possessions then Fire and Lace, changed to Earth and Lace when I opened a small gallary. Finally, after about 20 years I changed the name to "Pretty Pottery" because everyone said how "pretty" my pottery was. So "Pretty Pottery" it will remain.

I started with small local shows and as I perfected my work, I advanced into fine art and craft shows, galleries and online sales.

The Philadelphia Flower Show was one of my best venues where I exhibited my work for 20 years. Having participated in 100's of shows through the years, the gypsy in me is ready to slow down.
At this time I'm coming to the end of my career as a clay artisan but hopefully one of my grand children will take over where I left off. But I'm not finished yet. As long as I can make my "Pretty Pottery", I will.
