For Monica

I am posting this photo for my friend Monica of SugarPaperie. We share an obsession with milk glass and as I was surfing through my etsy favorites page I stumbled across this photographer, fieryeyed. I really love the old Polaroid camera and she has a great eye. Before I fell in love with clay I had a brief love affair with photography. We didn't last. I needed more, but it made me very picky when it comes to photographs. It really takes something special for me to take notice. I know, snobby. Really I am just bitter since now I have to turn back to photography to take my photos to sell my work. It's like asking an ex for a favor. You don't like it but know you can't get what you need any other way. Anyway, Monica this photo reminded me of you and your beautiful vases all lined up on that shelf in your adorable home:)

Little Dippers

Here are some more dishes that I have been working on. I have yet to adopt any of this series but I am about to grab up some of these little dippers. I seem to always need a little dish to hold some ingredient when I cook. I think they would make super cute salt and pepper holders too. You can get some in my etsy shop right now! Just click here.

New Mug Designs

I have been playing around some more, experimenting with the effects I can get with my Gocco. This last firing gave me some nice results, I think this will be a fun direction to take some pieces. I have to think of a name for this style of work though...I already have a line about Slow Food, what could this be?
