“Tut Tut” – Double Crane Vase

This vase was hand-built in the shape of two overlapping cranes standing in a bed of tall grasses.  It was sold before I measured it (oops!), but stood approximately 18 inches tall.  The vase did have a name, however – a dear friend christened it “Tut Tut”. Read more

Newest Color Combination.

My latest round of plates includes this new color combination – a striking contrast between designs carved in black underglaze under a warm honey-colored (food safe!) glaze.

Plates A-Blooming!

Of course, not all flowers need be bright – I also really enjoy the simplicity of black designs against a subtle, not-too-white glaze.

Recent Work.

I headed into the winter of 2011 – 2012 making floral plates and platters – lots of color to focus on as the days got dark and cold.  Designs are painted in underglaze then carved for greater detail – so no two pieces are ever quite alike.
