I made these beautiful porcelain serving dishes to bring excitement to the table. Images of animals and pottery effects in the glazed interior get revealed as a dish is served.
Illuminated Mugs, 2015: Feather Guardian, Commissioned Chihuahua Portrait "Mo," Seagull King
Rainbow of Mugs
I am continually experimenting with glaze combinations, effects, and colors as I search for the perfect surface for each application. I love making these mugs differently from one another so that they are unique, one of a kind, and of high quality craftsmanship.
Mixed clay and Illuminated Mugs: Both my bodies of work, work together to redefine space around them. The earth tones and textures of the mixed clay pieces vibe well in any space, and they invite the creatures and colors from my porcelain wares to come and play.
Each mixed clay mug boasts an individualized spiral that composes its form. I sand each piece by hand to achieve a soft, stone touch from the unglazed, raw clay exterior which contrasts with the pottery effects of combined glazes on the interior of the mugs.
Serving trays, cereal bowls, mugs, planters--I can make any form. If you'd like to ask me about a commissioned form or set, please send me a message via my contact page.
Tea Ceremony: We all have little rituals that help us get through our daily lives. Pottery has been an important part of our human lives for a very, very long time. The objects we invite into our lives play a bigger role in our day than we might expect. Choose art for your home.
