Handcrafted Ceramic Art
All pottery is handmade in my studio and starts as a single ball of clay. I use several different methods to create ceramics, forming by hand, throwing on the wheel, or using a slab roller.
After drying, each piece is carefully loaded into the kiln and is bisque fired, then carefully layered with a combination of glazes or oxides. Some pieces feature sea glass, and the piece is stilted on its side in the kiln for the sea glass to melt and drip in the second glaze firing to transform into a final work of art.

Handmade Barnacle Cups
How It's Made
Each ceramic barnacle cup is hand-built. Texture is added and the foot is created. Next, each barnacle is meticulously handmade and attached to the piece, inspired by underwater life and is ready to #admire from every angle. Finishing touches are added, with shells attached to the face of the piece. Gentle curves around each barnacle also serve as a function to catch the drippy glazes.
