Schedule: June and July

Schedule:  June and July

This is a new piece with Bysmith on top.  I love this crystal formation because of the geometric crystals and color.  It is a man made crystal.  It seems to me that it was created just to go with my raku vessel.  The colors of the crystal and the colors of copper in the raku are in harmony.  As well as art festivals, my work can be seen in the gallery: Seagrove Pottery of the Sand Hills, Pinehurst, NC

Raku Lantern
Sometimes the fire is the magic and in this case it is true.  You can see how the fire flamed up this piece, bringing out all of the colors of copper.  I love it when the blues and coppers merge.  Nature is my inspiration in its color, texture and form.  Raku combines the earth, wind and fire, connecting my work back to nature.  This lantern stands 18" with cut work.

Spring 2018

Spring 2018


Spring Schedule 2018

Sometimes, the fire is magic when firing in the raku process and in this case the fire brought out the beautiful blues and copper.  I am working this winter on new ideas for clay.   I love to work in clay because if you dream it, you can figurer out a way to build the clay piece.  You can add texture and carvings, which gives the piece depth and design.  Then the magic of the fire will hopefully bring the piece to life.   Each piece is fired individually, thus making a unique statement in clay.

July and August Schedule

                                                 Raku Flower Container

Soft smoked black caved clay accented by copper band makes a perfect flower presentation.  The attached pin frog enables you to have one or two flowers for a complete arrangement.  I love flowers and wanted to make a unique flower container.  $42.00 what a bargain!

I am home for several weeks and will be working on new ideas for this fall.  I love to have this time to explore new ideas and be creative.   I am also painting this summer.  I work in oils and paint from photos from trips and nature. It is a time to regroup and renew the creative spirit.
