in reply to a poster's comment, i would be more than happy to ship things cross country. the reason i attempted this blog is so that not only clevelanders would get to see my work.

if anyone needs price info, commissions, glaze choices, or other questions please drop me a line.

the art house sale was a financial success however the sales were limited to a few repeat and loyal customers. it was a good day for jewelers, bad day for potters.

for the rest of the season you can find me at pop shop, local girl gallery, and forst gallery. or you can contact me directly and shop in my house.

monoprints on stoneware mugs dipped in slip. unfortunately my pink glaze and clear do not want to co-exist. these were supposed to be iznik inspired. the glaze should have be bold and run outside the black edges. try, try again.

experiments, deviations, and new glazes. this glaze looks very yellow in the image but it is more crayola spring green in person. i think natalie will like it...

one of my favorite sets

cups had a different tray, tray had different cups, but things are getting rearranged

purple, pink, black, white everywhere you turn

above, wetwork and chaos in my studio. too many cups, too little room.
