Thank you for visiting! My ceramics are all about celebrating the joy that flowers and plants bring us. I hope you find something in my store that brings YOU joy as you incorporate it into your daily life.
I enjoy working with porcelain for its translucency and lightness. I like to use a surface decorating technique called "mishima", whereby I carve whimsical botanical illustrations that I then in-fill with a stained slip and hand-paint the accents (fruit, flowers, leaves and so forth) afterwards. All of my pieces are food-safe.
I have an engineering background, so I tend to prefer functional forms that start with good, fundamental design principles.
SOLD OUT! Next shop update: Late July
Folks, when I first started my career as a ceramic artist and potter I never thought this could happen to me, but it did. I've just shipped my VERY LAST PIECE - a mug with the red poppy design that is going to a collector's daughter as a graduation gift.
Thank you so, SO much for your enthusiasm and support for my little one-woman creative business! I truly appreciate every single one of you. Even if you didn't buy from me but commented on one of my social media posts or visited me at my booth at one of my art fairs and remarked about how much you liked my work. Your words matter and are uplifting and encouraging.
I'm taking a break until Cheesman Park Art Fest July 23-24 in Cheesman Park, Denver. If you're in the area, come visit me as well as the multitude of high quality creative artists who will be there.
I'll also be at the Affordable Art Festival August 28 at Arapahoe Community College, Littleton
Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Enjoy your summer! I'm SO looking forward to seeing you out and about again xo
It's only 10 degrees outside, so I'm making tea in my new mug. I wanted to let you know it arrived safe & sound (and fast). It's beautiful...I love it. I was at my sister's-in-law over Thanksgiving, and she had the same one in her cupboard (a gift from a co-worker). I wanted one of my own the moment I saw it. I love anything citrus (it reminds me of sunshine) & am fond of art that has a form that meets function. Your work is incredible. & your engineering background is evident in your designs.
Amazing! This mug is both functional and beautiful – it has a gorgeously textured and hand crafted feel, great colour scheme (works well with our décor), as well as delicate features that make drinking from it more pleasurable. The contoured mouthpiece and thumb-grip make it easy to handle and my coffee almost vanishes a bit too quickly! Luckily, a refill is only a few minutes away
Juni was my first ceramics instructor, and has been so influential I have now joined a pottery co-op so I can be creative whenever the mood strikes! As an instructor, she is very patient and willing to help when you need it, but will also stand back and have you try it on your own without interference. She is supportive of students trying different methods, and wants to hear what they are interested in making during lessons. Her pieces are lovely and unique (I own several!). Highly recommend both as an instructor, and as a professional artist you should start collecting from!
