UP AND COMING!

Have you seen the changes? I am not talking seasons but surfaces. I am talking about MY POTTERY! Since studying with internationally known and admired ceramic artist, Linda Arbuckle, I have had a love for painting on pots. Problem is, I was too shy to take it to the market. Well, after suppressing my desires this long, it was time to get to painting on my hand made pottery!

My new series of work is titled my ‘Peacock’ Series because of the wealth of color. It is inspired, still, by my natural surroundings – that red dirt and lush greenery. I guess lately I have been noticing more and more flowers, butterflies and other brilliantly colored natural things around me.

Cruet handmade
Cruet for oil, vinegar, or other sauce. Peacock series glaze.

SO DON’T MISS ME at these upcoming shows where I will display and sell my new work. They won’t last – the series seems to be a hit and it takes time to paint each pot to bring out its beauty.
