This is a new series of pottery items that are inspired by the ocean and the beach. Much of this series includes lines that are a reminder of the shoreline - when the waves lap up on the beach. Others include etchings of sea kelp - with their beautiful flowing lines. If you're a fan of the ocean and the beach, you'll find something in this series to love!
I've created a series of pottery items designed with ocean themes. Much of my work incorporates the black and white sgraffito images of sea kelp as well as colorful patterns inspired by the lines washed up on the beach.

Serving Platter in Turquoise Blue Pottery with Zendala Abstract Design
You may want this beautiful platter as a decoration only but its fully functional for your serving needs. It was hand built from stoneware clay and includes an oval foot at the bottom. After it was bisque fired it was given a zendala design (a form of zentangle) using glaze pens, and then it was dipped in turquoise glaze. This is a new series of pieces that I’m working on in collaboration with Whimsy By Kelly who is a certified Zentangle teacher and artist. Her shop is https://www.etsy.com/shop/WhimsyByKelly
Its dimensions are: 6 ¾ inches/ 17.1 cm width 10 ½ inches/ 26.7 cm length ½ inch/ 1.2 cm height 20 ounces (1 pound 4 ounces)/ 567 grams weight
This exotic peacock design on a unique half-moon shaped plate can be used every day or just on special occasions. The plate is hand constructed from a slab of stoneware clay with the edges turned up slightly, and after it was bisque fired, the peacock was drawn using glaze pens in blue, black and white. The design is zentangle inspired so it has a unique abstract look. The plate was then dipped into a pale turquoise glaze which drips a some areas. This is part of a new series I am working on with Whimsy By Kelly with zentangle designs. Her shop is here:https://www.etsy.com/shop/WhimsyByKelly

The items in this series are made of stoneware clay, glazed white and then fired. After firing they have been decorated with various alcohol inks and then later sprayed with a clear glaze. These items are not food safe and should only be washed by hand.
I love cats and enjoy making numerous pieces inspired by my two cats, Jesse and Jet.
Here is a series of yarn bowls that I make for those that knit and crochet.
I teach a wide array of classes for both children and adults. Most recently I have started teaching how to use alcohol ink on pottery.
