About The Artist

My photo
I am a jeweler, a potter...an artist I suppose. I have been creating hemp, glass bead and wire jewelry since 1996 but have only been throwing pottery since the Spring of 2008. I plan to open my own gallery and workshop within the next five years but for now I make my work out of my home and sell in galleries and online. I sell my work to feed my hobby and because I am running out of room for my creations in the house. My art, like this blog, is in it's beginning stages and I hope that as my reader you will join me in my journey as an artist and enjoy it as much as I know I will!

Meet My Little Beach Bum!

After some really busy and stressful weeks filled with tax returns and audits I managed to find some time to play in the clay. I have made this covered Crab dish that I call "Beach Bum."

I have to give my mom credit for the idea of making it a covered dish, I was just going to put the eyes in the bowl. It ended up looking ridiculous with the eyes being attached to the same piece the legs were attached to so I made the lid and put the eyes there. He's currently drying in the basement and I'll take him to be fired once he's bone dry.

24 days until tax season is over! Then there will be many more blogs posted, I promise!
