I also like to make Pottery

In addition to my passion for jewelry, I also love ceramics. I love to escape in the studio while listening to my favorite music. Here is some fun I had creating rustic, irregular, organic-shaped slab bowls and plates. The glaze I chose is a white with adobe clay-colored undertones. I love its earthy beauty. I love the excitement and unknown of the glazing process because you can never predict exactly how it's going to turn out. I paired the set with my great-grandmother's antique sterling silverware. 

 I love the texture this linen cloth pad adds to the clay. I like the way it enhances the rustic look.

 Pounds and pounds of clay. So much clay, so little time!

 No one said ceramics was a clean art. I was covered in clay and dust.

 Glazes fascinate me. It's like the frosting on the cake- THE best part!

 I am obsessed with this ladle from great-grandma's antique silverware collection. The shape is just so unique. It reminds me of jewelry.

 One of the finished bowls. I love its authentic beauty and raw imperfection. I also made these wooden plates from a giant Eucalyptus tree I found in the neighborhood. Eucalyptus trees are a very hard dense wood and have lots of natural oils in them. This naturally creates a water resistant surface on the wood. Then I sealed them with Bees-Wax.  Bon appetit!
