 CARVED and PIERCED PIECES: slabbed and wheel thrown pieces that I carve cut 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!
