Thank you so much for my custom order. I am obsessed with my new garden stakes!!! They are so cool in person. I will definitely keep ordering these as I add new plants to my garden. Thank you so much Sumiko 😍

Coasters arrived quickly. Very pretty glaze color, practical Naugahyde backing, wonderfully graceful floral pattern. The surface is very smooth, so that some of my mugs slipped around in a way I hadn't expected, and that is the only reason I didn't give a full 5star rating. Edited review: I am happy to upgrade to 5 stars. MY mugs may have been slippery, but when I showed the lovely coasters to a friend, she was wowed. I think she and her glassware will enjoy these coasters very much.

Shipping was on time. Great quality and even included a little extra ceramic heart. The perfect birthday gift for the person who has everything.

About

My name is Sumiko Braithwaite. I have had a love affair with all art forms since I was a teenager. I was born in Kumamoto, Japan, amd began studying fine arts while still in High School.
I traveled to Italy in 1958 and studied under local artists there. I was married while in Naples and put my artistic endeavors on hold while I raised my family.
Besides my four years in Italy, I lived in Washington, D.C., Honolulu, HI and finally settled in San Diego, CA.
I became serious with art as a student at Miramar College where I received an AA degree in Fine Art. I attended a class in clay at Mesa College and found my calling. At Mesa I studied ceramics, sculpting and glaze technology under Dr. John Conrad. Dr. Conrad is a world famous author and a Master Potter.
I create unique "Double Wall" pottery in a style that is definitely all my own. You can see examples at http://www.doublewallpottery.mysite.com or go to http://wwwvasefinder.com and check the international shows.
Examples of my work can be found in many private collections worldwide.

I am a member of Clay Artists of San Diego, Shelter Island Art Association, Coronado Art Association and San Diego Museum of Art, Artist Guild.

I have opened a second store at:
