    Happy Mother’s Day!

    This is what my Mom got for Mother’s Day this year!  This is my kitty, Sukie and yes she is the majesty of our household.  I’m so pleased with the way this turned out I am thinking about making it into a print!  I would hang one of these in my house.  How about you??… READ MORE

    New Collage

    I have been using the same collage of my images for years and today realized I don’t even make some of those pieces anymore.  So, in all of my embarrassment, I created two new collages.  This one turned out to be my favorite.

    To the Motherland!

    Woo hoo!  I got my first International order from Etsy and the first lesson I learned is that I didn’t charge enough for shipping – D’oh!  But the most exciting bit is that it is my little cup named Charlie and he is moving to Australia — ie the motherland for me. I feel so… READ MORE

    The Oh Happy Day!

    Alright, so since I got into writing blog posts, I feel like I have been using it as a diving board for my disasters in the ceramics world.  I won’t always be a complainer I promise.  I have had numerous misfortunes fall on me lately to be sure but this sadly is not unusual in… READ MORE  

  • S & M But Not the Dirty Kind

    Well not dirty in a deviant way but surely dirty in a clay way.  Every Ceramicist I know MUST be a sado masochist in the dirty clay way.  There are a million and one things that can go wrong every step of the way in the ceramics process.  Even tried and true ways never work… READ MORE

    Saying goodbye is the hardest part…

    I have to learn to say goodbye and everytime I do I sing that excellent Cole Porter song significantly titled “Everytime We Say Goodbye”.  I’m much happier when I say goodbye to my ceramic pieces that go to live in people’s houses.  They can bring happiness and joy to their new owner eating breakfast out… READ MORE
