My Etsy Store 

Please bare with me, this site is being updated (former updater didn't quite do the job!) I'll be adding pictures to the separate galleries...I'll be working on bowls and drinking vessels this and next week - 7/10/15


 CARVED PIECES: slabbed and wheel thrown pieces that I carve clay away from to create patterns, designs and pictures. 


SLABBED PIECES: where I create patterns with organic textures, original designs, embed patterns and layer glazes by painting and utilize the mishima technique 


Animals and Flowers - Living here in the canyon affords me many opportunities to interact with my natural surroundings - my muses - 

quail, owls, hummingbirds, butterflies, flowers and being so close to Monterey Bay brings me my ocean buddies...sea otters,

leafy sea dragons, dolphins and whales.

Reduction Fired Glazeware - 

I create about 35 different shapes: Plates, Sets, Mugs, Cafe au Laits, Creamers, Jars, Bowls, Trays, Colanders, Berry Bowls, Casseroles, Platters, Vases, Pitchers and Teapots...

 With these pieces I layer multiple glazes, sometimes in a swirl, sometimes one on top of another; usually creating great patterns of color. I use wax resist to create detailed patterns at times.

With every pot and every firing I strive to make sweet, strong functional pots

with interesting forms, textures and colors that enhance your day - that first cup of coffee or tea in the morning, a special serving piece, 
dinnerware you enjoy looking at whether there's food in it or not, a vase for your flowers, a gift for that special person or occasion...

like connecting my pottery to your life! 
I hope they bring joy and a smile to your day.

All are lead free, microwave, dishwasher, and oven-safe. Enjoy!
My work is high fired, meaning it is very durable. You can use it each and every day with confidence!
