Sweet little wizard, too cute.
I am but the Clay - once broken, becoming Beautiful
I have to start off my story with giving thanks to God. I am beyond amazed that not only did God carry me through many fires and deep valleys that all but took my life (and came close to it on more than occasion), but that He is replacing all that the enemy stole, and is giving me beauty for ashes. Part of this beauty is giving me the ability and means to do what I love to do: create.
He - God, Christ - is The Immaculate Raven. When I was in the wilderness begging for death, He is the one who sent the "ravens" to feed me as I hid away. They came in many forms from His Word, to strangers, to new and wonderful friends and many other amazing and mysterious ways. He and He alone is my reason for being, doing, and becoming all that I am to become. Glory to the King.
That being said, creating is a joy of my heart. I've been doing pottery for over 12 years and dabble in other mediums as the inspiration hits. With college, crazy life issues, and family taking much of my time over the past decade, I was only able to create sporadically in my free moments - when I could find the energy. Another huge obstacle for me was having a way to complete my process; I loved doing pottery, but finding a place and time to fire it was a challenge.
But that has all now changed and the impossible has become not only possible, but my reality. I now have a small studio set up in the basement of our new home in the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina. Married to an amazing man of God who just retired from teaching, we now are creating a homestead and I - to my utter amazement - instead of having to enter back in the office, I am allowed to pursue my dreams.
Because it's not about "things", you know? It's about relationships, and growth, and beauty, and love, and thankfulness for the good in this crazy, glorious life. I am SO blessed and grateful to have the opportunity I do, with a wonderful man by my side - my heart overflows.
Back to my ART :) As of now, I'm still exploring my art. I've finally found a rabbit trail to run down, and it runs on the side of whimsical. I love fun, silly things. But I have found it takes some bravery to really explore that - so I'm just testing the waters before the full cliff dive. Who knows what may appear. :)
So... over the next few years my voice will come forth, and it's going to be a fun and intriguing journey towards it. I'd love for you to come along for the ride. But through it all, to God be the glory.
"And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there." ~ 1st Kings 17:4
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." ~ Jesus
An artist since birth, a potter for 12 years, and finally at a stage in my life where I can begin to focus on the growth and production of my art on a more consistent basis. But all I have, and all I'm going to be - to God alone I give the glory.
I strive to create quality, one-of-a-kind creative work that will appeal to many. My goal is to provide top-notch customer service so please feel free to contact me about anything you need along the way and I'll do my best to help you ensure you have the best experience possible.

Additional policies and FAQs
I currently do not do custom work, but if you have an idea or request please feel free to send it to me and I will evaluate it based on my time, skill level, and resources and possibly work with you on it. I do love a good challenge when time and energy can afford it! But please realize pottery is not a quick process. In addition to the time spent making it, it must be fired twice. Please allow 4-6 weeks.
