Hi Y’all,

I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting images from the last firing, and here they are!

I have been sending pots out and setting up our showroom for spring visitors.  We’ve had a lot of folks through despite our lousy, cold weather (where is spring??).  I’m also taking some time to get our land in order.  All that rain and a broken lawnmower meant that our lawn was incredibly tall.  I finally am getting that taken care of this week, alond with planting, weeding, cleaning, painting…  You know, all those things that get pushed aside when I’m slammed in the studio.  I’ll post some pictures of my garden soon- it’s a lovely space.  We are eating spinach from it now, and lots more is growing.

Coming up in June, I will be the Featured Artist at Crimson Laurel Gallery.  Many of the pots above will be in that show.

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think of the new work!


Loading and Firing Photo Round Up


It’s been busy!  I fired last week, and it went well.  Here are some photos of the loading:

Me wadding the pots.  I put my plates rim to rim lately- it saves space and I like the look.

The firing went smoothly.  I got to spend the day with my husband and some good friends.

I had images shot this week of some of the best pots.  With luck I’ll get them soon.

I still have a few yunomis unsold at AKAR.  Check them out here– I’d love to have mine sell out!

Thanks for reading.

Close Up Around the Kiln

I’m almost done glazing so I took some time to ready my kiln area for loading. It’s really a nice space under my kiln shed. Here are a couple close-ups of texture.


bricks, scraped and washed.

bag wall. Leaning a bit, but it’s got a few more firing in it!

Birds! Nest!

This afternoon my daughter and I spent a bunch of time outside. We weeded and walked and went to my studio. In my ekiln and dry material shed we found a birds nest (between the silica and the old plaster).


There is a mama bird around guarding the nest and atleast 5 eggs in the nest!


Pretty neat!


We stopped to smell the flowers.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I might just take the day off. Thanks for reading!
