the prickly pear is native to north carolina.
i find it reoccurring in my work, largely because
this succulent will thrive in just about any conditions!
go, little cactus, go!
(or should i say grow….hehehe)

i have been working on some new ideas for mug forms. these are some from my first batch of "sketches". i am pretty excited to see how these turn out once they're fired!
goblets that jingle!
these goblets are inspired by two things:
1) i believe that because of surprises, life stays exciting
2) i will never fall out of love with the notion of magic
it came to me as an inspiration after attending a workshop given by julie wiggins at HCC. she made these sweet little covered jars that, essentially, had a lid that jingled when you lifted it! oh my goodness! the joy and surprise of lifting that lid! in a word, it was magical.
so, considering i am all about sparkly-happy-lovely-surprises, i knew i HAD to find a way to incorporate "jingle-y things" into something that i make! the most obvious way for them to compliment my work, was to incorporate them into my goblets. standing only about five inches tall, i make them smaller than the usual goblets. the "bells" are in the stem.

A flask, because women drink whiskey too!
This is my first ever whiskey flask. I see plenty of man potter's making whiskey flasks, but never a flask to cater to the more feminine desires of lady's taste. I am pretty excited about how it turned out. I have brought it down here to Lazy Daze in Raleigh, NC and I am super excited to have re-"home"-d it to another potter friend who happens to be here.
I love trades! In return, I got a sweet one cup coffee maker
made by Wendy Wrenn of Wrenn Pottery.
More of these to come!
