Horsehair Landscape Plate

Horsehair Landscape Plate

This plate has various colors of terra sigilatta, painted in a landscape scene.  Horsehair, feathers and sugar are used to decorate the hot plate when it comes out of the kiln.  It is hot work and the results are unpredictable and earthy.

Earth Tone Berry Bowl

Earth Tone Berry Bowl

Use this cute bowl to  rinse berries, then put the bowl right in the refrigerator to keep them nice and cool.  The matching saucer will catch the drips.  It can also be used to drain small amounts of pasta.  Food and dishwasher safe.

Walk Through the Birches Mural

Walk Through the Birches Mural

All the pieces in this mural were Raku fired individually, and there are a lot of them… 107  to be exact!  It is quick, hot work, but I love the effect I get with the fat white glaze on the birch trees.  After gluing the pieces in place, it is grouted… just the same as you would any tile work.  This free-form shaped mural is mounted and ready for hanging or setting on an easel.

What are Hybrid Works?

Hybrid: the combination of two things to make another.  ie  Hybrid plants, hybrid cars, hybrid animals… and now, hybrid pottery?  Well, maybe.  These pieces are a combination of both sculptural and functional with a bit of mixed media thrown in for good luck.  So, if you think that constitutes them as “hybrids” … great!  If not, please enjoy them for whatever purpose you deem them to have!

Yard and Garden Art

You don’t have to be an avid gardener, just someone who also believes that their yard or garden is a place that can be enhanced by adding decorative and interesting items.  Have a garden that reflects your individuality; not only through the flowers and plants you’ve chosen, but also through the decorative items you can  incorporate into your garden’s theme.  Each unique garden art accessory adds more visual interest and sometimes, a bit of whimsy too!
