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!

Throwing Again!

Well my faithful readers, I offer you proof that I have begun to throw on my wheel once again! This past Saturday I finally had a few free hours and the energy I needed to throw on my apron and get covered in pottery clay. And fortunately for me my sister was home and agreed to take a few pictures for me.

I was not having the best hair day, it looks like I have an afro. I also did not make anything really worth mentioning, unfortunately.

This piece you see on the wheel in the picture above actually ended up being boring and I flattened it (see photo below). I ended up making a small bowl instead, with a swirl in the center. Nothing fancy, but at least I got going again.

Saturday Mom is coming over to help fire up the kiln and we're going to make some clay jewelry. I'm really excited about it and will take tons of pictures of the process! So have a good week readers and check back next weekend for another blog!
