I love the bowls June made for my guinea pigs - and they love them too. They're colorful, sturdy (which piggies need since they stand on them) and the perfect size. These are a good purchase indeed and June was very responsive and customer service oriented. Definitely use her again!

I bought this for a friend that I am teaching to knit. It is SO CUTE that I want to keep it!!!!!
I have a hard time calling it "art."
I don't want my pieces to be put on a pedestal and admired. I want them to become part of a life; to be held, used and loved every day.
After receiving my BA in studio art, I never wanted to make anything ever again. So I became an Animal Control Officer.
Fast forward to us living in Las Cruces, NM with 18 month old twins, when my husband surprised me with a used wheel and kiln. After expressing my horror that he would think I even had time for that, I found myself sneaking out to the garage during naptimes to dabble in the mud once again.
In 1997 I sold my first mug for $5 to a neighbor who stopped to chat and admired what I was pulling out of my kiln.
In 1999 we moved to Rhode Island where the pottery was put on hold until 2003 when I started up Rising Sun Earthworks, named in honor of my Japanese mom who always encouraged my artistic endeavors.
I've been muddy ever since.

I was born to a Japanese mom and an American dad, and grew up in Los Alamos, NM. I spent my youth exploring the canyons, collecting shards of ancient pottery. I guess my fascination with mud and earth, and what can be created from it, started then.
