My work is hand formed, primitive and rustic. Each piece is unique to itself in design and coloring. If you are wanting perfection, my work will not suit you. I enjoy doing custom work:) I can not guarantee exact duplicates but make every effort to get close yet maintain each pieces' uniqueness!

Raku is an ancient Japanese glazing style that has been tweaked by modern potters to give wonderful colors and textures. Once a piece is glazed, it is fired to1850 +/- degrees, pulled from the kiln at that temperature and quickly placed in a reduction chamber filled with combustible materials. Immediately the blazing material is starved of oxygen by placing a top on the chamber and left to rest for a determined amount of time. When the top is removed...the treasures are revealed:) Every firing is different in the revealed colors, each piece uniquely different.

I enjoy researching and finding great digital images that are in public domain and more than 100 years old. I use digital methods to clean them up, sometimes creating new artistic works, or making PNG images for you to use in your own artistic creations. Images are 150 to 300 DPI and are easily manipulated to fit your projects. 150 dpi is perfect for image printing on fabric for pillows, quilting projects, sewing projects.

MY goal is to have what you buy delight and inspire! My individual pieces are meant to be a stepping off point to create your own unique work of art. Enjoy your visit to my shop!!! I hope you will stop by often to see what the Raku gods have offered:)

Love What You Do...Do What You Love

So you have found my little shop among all those thousands in Etsy! I hope you will take time to browse my virtual treasures and stop by often to see what I am up to. I have many interest and hobbies and my shop is reflective of that. My work is hand formed, primitive and rustic. Each piece is unique to itself in design and coloring. If you are wanting perfect rounds and squares, my work will not suit you. I use my hands and purposely alter every clay piece I make. I enjoy doing custom work:) I can not guarantee exact duplicates but make every effort to get close yet maintain each pieces' uniqueness!

Once a piece is glazed, it is fired to1850 +/- degrees, pulled from the kiln at that temperature and quickly placed in a reduction chamber filled with combustible materials. Immediately the blazing material is starved of oxygen by placing a top on the chamber and left to rest for a determined amount of time. When the top is removed...the treasures are revealed:) Every firing is different in the revealed colors, each piece uniquely different. Because humidity, daily temperatures, my quickness in getting the work in the reduction chamber all contribute to the final result...no two firings are alike. Opening the reduction chamber is always like opening a present at Christmas...never know what you are going to get...sometimes a diamond, sometimes a flannel shirt...but always a treat:)

Images are 150 to 300 DPI and are easily manipulated to fit your projects. 150 dpi is perfect for image printing on fabric for pillows, quilting projects, sewing projects. I am also able now to do vector images for your Silhouette Cameo machine. I hope to introduce stencils to my shop as well. Original designs based on organic shapes or my original photography.

My work is hand formed and slightly primitive and rustic. Even when using molds I have made, I try to make every impression a little different from the last. Each piece is unique to itself in design and coloring. If you are wanting perfection, my work will not suit you.

I subscribe to the Wabi Sabi simple school of creating... "[Wabi-sabi] nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect. It also refers to quirks and anomalies arising from the process of construction, which add uniqueness and elegance to the object."

I always hope what you buy delights and inspires you! My individual pieces are meant to be a stepping off point to create your own unique work of art. They are imperfect and Wondrously Strange:) Enjoy your visit to my shop!!!
