"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."

Latest Work

This kiln had a lot of Prairie pieces mixed in with more of the usual work.

Small with the Dark Green glaze usually reserved for Petals

Group of small Prairie in our Teco Green Glaze

Smaller group in our Yellow Glaze

The single shots are of larger pieces. I'm thinking of adding a linked page connected to our website's Prairie page with these photos, sizes and prices. The idea would be to post "in stock" pieces and remove them when they sell. It could be a way to enhance the website a bit and make the time frame more convenient. People wanting a quick gift then wouldn't be put off by our making pots to order. Any feedback on this?

one inch of rain in the mountains means a lot!
