New Blue Ceramic Watercan

Here’s a new take on an old form. A little more elegant, and little more lyrical…perhaps. Just a little different. Sending this one over to my gallery on the Oregon coast, Touchstone Gallery.  $75

Sage Green Handled Vase

Handled Vase

Handled Vase

This style vase has been one of my standard pieces for many years now. Arrangers like the handle and I like the clean lines and timely feel of the shape. Here it is with the sage green glaze that seems to have taken off in popularity this year. 13″ – $75 (Sold)

Woodfired “Ice Queen” Vase


“Ice Queen” was woodfired at Digger Mtn Anagama Kiln in the Oregon Coast Range. Decoration on this piece came from wood ash flying through the kiln over several days of stoking wood. One of my favorites out of the kiln. Its subtle ash markings are quiet and not as dramatic as I’d hoped, but seem to fit its gently twisting feminine form just perfectly.

13.5x 8x 6.5 inches

Dog Treat Canister

Dog Treat Canister

Dog Treat Canister

This funky, organic shaped canister is meant for one lucky slightly “off-centered” dog lover.
Who keeps human cookies around in a canister anymore? Just don’t last that long–at least at our house… So, this bone handled cutie is probably best for doggie biscuits or treats, rawhides or anything else actually. See how quickly your four-legged friend learns something good is coming at the sound of the lid lifting off this ceramic piece. Good doggie!

Bone handle on the lid is made out of porcelain. The rest is high-fired stoneware, durable for many years of use. Food safe glaze, so if you want to hide your people cookies inside, they’ll be safe here.

11″ x 7″ x 5″

I make these every-once-and-awhile.  Check out my Etsy shop to see if one is listed.

Small Creamer

Small Creamer

Light Sage/Blue Creamer

This small pitcher with sage blue/green glaze will be happy to sit on your table and pour cream, soy sauce or syrup. It was cut out from one piece of clay and fit together on the back seam. The spiral decoration on both sides serves as the handle grips, meaning there is no pesky handle to try and fit into the dishwasher.

Looks lovely as a small vase for short stem posies, too.
Food safe glaze of course.
5″ tall x 4″ x 3.5″

Blushing Ceramic Vase

Small Porcelain Vase

Small Blushing Porcelain Vase

This porcelain cutie was fired at Hiroshi Ogawa’s woodfire kiln many moons ago but I’m just now really appreciating the subtle markings on it. A hint of pink shows in good light–marks made from copper fuming off other pots in the firing. Will be a nice windowsill vase for short stemmed blooms.
3.5″ tall – $35.

Ceramic Butter Dish

Ceramic Butter Dish

Stoneware Butter Dish

A customer asked for a butter dish to match a sugar and creamer set she purchased from me many years ago. Took me a couple of attempts to figure out the shrinkage to fit over a cube of butter but not be too large to pick up. Then had to get the glazing right. People are seeing all kinds of animal faces… I like that.

These will go nicely with the leaf plates. Dishwasher safe. $40-$45 depending on size.
