About My Shop
- Inspired by African pottery, generations of my family's quilting tradition, growing up on California beaches and an enthusiastic love of color, I make pieces to be lived with. As such, most of my work begins with an idea for something I would love to have in my own home. After I create the piece I desire, one of the most important phases of my work begins; living with it. I note aspects that work, details that need to be tweaked such as the thickness of a rim and then return to the studio to bring life to the enhanced vision. My pieces grow herbs in the yard, succulents around the house, provide shelters for pets, generously conceal cluttery collections on shelves, store tangles of charging cords, serve up & enhance meals, desserts and snacks, plate perfumes & potions, bring new life to game night, inspire individual claims on favored pieces and beautify every space they inhabit.
Meet the Maker
I work with a variety of clay bodies, but like to give each its own time in the studio to avoid unfavorable contamination. Because of this custom orders usually take 8 weeks MINIMUM. If you have an urgent deadline, please contact me as arrangements might be possible, but generally patience in this creative process is greatly appreciated.
Items are usually shipped within 5 days of ordering. I try to pack orders in recycled boxes and packaging material to put less strain on the environment and keep your items as safe as possible while they travel.
Return & Exchanges
These are handled on a case by case basis. If there is a problem with your order, please reach out so that I can make it right.
