Bowls of all sizes to fit your every need made especially for you from hand crafted stoneware.

I am a potter who lives in SE Oklahoma.  Currently I am attending Texas A&M University in Commerce, Texas.  I will be graduating with my BFA in Studio Arts with a concentration in ceramics in December, 2012 just a few months shy of my 70th birthday.

I make custom hand made pottery. Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike. When I make something I like to think about the person I am making the piece for.  It gives me a warm, wonderful feeling to know that something I have made with my own two hands will be used by others in their everyday lives.  There is such a unique connection between the potter and the person who utilizes the pottery.   Each piece connects the maker to the user. Each time you use your hand made pottery in your own home, you are interacting with the sincerity and soul of the artisan who created it.

I believe that Kickstarter is a great way to showcase my pottery and raise awareness about hand made functional items we use everyday. The funds that are collected here will be used to offset the cost of the clay, glazes and firings that will be used in making the reward items. In addition to the bowl rewards I have also added a couple of smaller rewards such as the tatted earrings and the pen and ink miniatures.  At the other end of the reward spectrum I have added a large 3 foot high water fountain sculpted from stoneware bowls complete with pumping system.  I hope you will enjoy these rewards as much as I have enjoyed making them for you.
