Finding works

I do not have a lot of work available at this time but, what I do have you can find at The Market on Main in Prosperity and  I hope to have more work available once I get caught up on my orders!  There is always room for more orders though so if you see something (in my slim collection) that you like drop me an email.

Philoma's Fish

Here it is........ the photo does not show the colors very well, the green is lime and the face is yellow.

On a roll

Time is moving along so quickly these days, I have been in the studio for two nights until 10 pm working on orders that have time stamps on them.  My husband is thinking I have traded him in for a block of clay!
I'm working on plates, something I haven't ventured on much so I have my fingers crossed!! I'll post pics when they are done, no matter how they turn out. Check back for results....

Finished cup just for me

Here is the lemon tea cup all finished!  I made this as one of my proto types, well, also for myself .  If you are going to work this hard to get an idea perfected at least make it good enough to use yourself!!!!!

Pottery Trip

For anyone who loves pottery and has not made the short and beautiful trek to Seagrove, NC, go now.
Put down your watering hose, laptop or what ever distraction keeps you at home and get into your mode of transportation and go. 
I just returned, it was only for a day because I want to make this a regular thing.  There are over 100 potters in this quaint rural setting and to try and whip through it in one or two days would be a shame, but if you want a nice day or so trip this is a super choice.
The first stop as you hop on 220 was A.R. Britt Pottery, I purchased the coolest egg cooker, I should have bought several, so see I have to go back.  I had a great time talking shop with these guys for an hour or more and really got to know the town.
Then off to several more potteries, I especially enjoyed Village Pottery.  They carry a huge selecion of potters from areas all over and Melanie, the owner was most delightful.
Next was Kings Pottery, unfortunatley I arrived after hours, but I still got out and meandered around the gardens, which in itself was so cool.  They have metal art pieces made from recycled farm and garden tools placed in the flower beds and along the splitrail fence that leads you up to a cozy porch.  What really struck me were the hand made quilts that were laid out on the benches along the front porch.  I can only quess why they were there, but what ever the reason, it made me feel comfortable and welcome.
So, now that I have returned  home and I am motivated to get into the studio and get crackin'
I will keep you posted on my progress!!
