A dish set with tulips made from stoneware clay. This is my new style of thrown pottery that I will be making spring 2018.
My chickens have been very popular in my stores. I started the "girls" about 2 years ago and love making them. I use texture and bright underglaze colors on the bodies. Some are big and some are very small! Prices range from 18$-30$
I paint flowers, leaves and birds on and in my pottery. My grandmother had a greenhouse of pansies and entered them in the Boston flower show with a friend who arranged them for her. My dad was a farmer who grew gardens. My husband was a wildlife biologist and we had a big family garden so it comes naturally to use nature in my art.
Most of the flowers you see in my website are from our yard.
Bow Tie Bunnies
So while I was making my Easter Rabbits in my studio, my 9 year old granddaughter came in and said, "O, Bow Tie Bunnies!" So that is what they are called!!
So I bought an old Duncan Kiln at a yard sale for 50$ and use that for my Raku firing. It works great but can only do small pieces. I have pictures of some of my woven bowls and bowls that have a copper color that I can get from one of my raku glaze.
I made this while I was at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Tenn. I went for a week to work with Tom Bartel from Ohio State.
