Hey! This will be quick because I need to hit the hay, but just wanted to let everyone know that I did a bisque fire this weekend and have lots o' pots to glaze now! Chips 'n Salsa trays, huge mugs and soapdishes are on the menu. I'll post them to my Etsy shop when they are finished! My head is swimming with glazing possibilites... :-)

Pottery Shop on ETSY

NEWS FLASH : : : : : : : I've set up a Pottery Shop on the Etsy website! It's a great place where you can go to check out my latest pottery that is for sale...

I'm two-wheeling it!

Hey! I got my motorcycle permit on Saturday and bought my helmut today! This evening Terry (my hubbie) and I went out driving around to practice. I am riding his 2008 Honda Ruckus scooter and he's on his 1969 Honda 450 motorcycle. WOW! Going 25 mph seemed fast! But, my turns are getting smoother. The fastest the scooter can go is about 40mph, but it gets 100 MPG!! Cool! Maybe someday I'll work myself up to a "real" bike!

Fall is here!

Hello, again! I don't know what happened to the summer other than I seemed to have spent most of it working on the Troy Arts Alliance. I was so stressed out with it that I couldn't get myself into my studio.

Anyway, I'm very happy that Fall/Autumn is here and the air is cool and light with a hint of dried leaves in the air! The older I get, the more I love the month of October--in Ohio anyway!

This weekend found me in my studio again and I'm starting to throw again! Yeah! I've got some fun functional pieces that I want to make for the holidays. These include Santa & Snowman mugs, Chips 'N Salsa trays, funky soap dishes and maybe some casserole dishes with handles. I've set up an account on and need to get some inventory going so that I can start up my shop! This will be fun!
Also, I can't wait to try more Lotus Zen fountains. The next ones will look more like water lilies (pointed petals) and I'm thinking of using porcelain for the flower part. I'm hoping that the porcelain clay will make the flower look translucent.

Attached is a picture of one of my new mugs and a FRESH chips 'n salsa platter. I'm using my brown clay again and it smells so awesome!
