 Handmade Pottery Creations:
I love creating hand-sculpted pottery that is functional and fun!  
I create whimsical instruments such as flutes, ocarinas, and turtle rattles with clay.  I  also enjoy using stoneware and earthenware clay to create sculptural animals that also have a purpose - bowls, containers, dishes, and banks. So far, my creature creations include elephants, giraffes, chameleons, pigs, birds, fish, armadillos, tapirs, turtles, dragons, woodland imps, sea serpents, and lizards.
Handmade Jewelry and Glass Beads for Jewelry Making:
I enjoy the magic of the flame and how with patience and the careful coordination and 'dance' of heat, timing, and glass color choices, a beautiful pendant or 
bead is formed. 
Kiln casting and fusing of glass also has a magic that attract me. Frit casting and fusing cut glass into intricate pendants, colorful beads, and star ornaments and wedding decorations is also a source of creative pleasure.
My Inspiration:  
I'm very lucky to be surrounded by so many friends and family that are creative and encouraging. My studio is also surrounded by a wooded area and a beautiful garden that is a constant source of inspiration. I am also an art teacher and marvel at all the creative solutions that my young artists come up with. They also inspire me throughout the school year and help to keep me on my toes, learning new things to teach them and helping to 
keep me growing as an artist.

~Enjoyed a short walk in the woods late this afternoon, enjoyed seeing everything new and green!... and found lot's of burdock, violet, oakleaf hydrangea, and maple tree leaves to help finish off  24 stoneware 'leaf vases'. 
~Put last weeks batch of 'leaf vases' in the kiln to be bisque fired.
~Finally, the toad houses were ready for me to add the 
 friendly 'toad' that sits on the top to welcome new ones to your garden-this is my favorite part...when I finish it's friendly expression!
~This week, I've also been getting prepared for teaching my 1st Glass Bead Lampworking class that begins early this summer...reviewing my wonderful 'glass books' : They are 'EYE CANDY'... so colorful, beautiful and providing me with new inspiration for my class and my own work!
