I’m drawn to making things that elevate life’s simple pleasures; a mug that tells a story, a vase to host fresh cut flowers, things that nudge one to look for beauty in the ordinary rituals of our daily lives, how lunch is served on a beautiful plate, or the cup we offer to a friend.
My gallery gives a taste of the kind of pieces I make. A selection of mugs are for sale online. The rest of my mugs and work can be found in my studio showroom, and at the Shuswap Artisan Market.
I create mugs as limited editions. This allows me to work on one set at a time, and stay with a theme like birds, bikes or bees.
When a set is ready I put them in my online shop. I usually make about a dozen at a time. They can be bought as singles, or in any number I have available.
I don’t take orders when a set has sold. Instead I post my latest work as it comes out of the kiln. This way I can keep exploring the ideas that make me feel most alive and produce my best work.
Most of my serving wares are glazed in glossy white, or with a matte glaze I call ‘butter’. These glazes have a warm glow to them that compliments food beautifully. Most of my serving wares are one-of-a-kind although I do repeat some patterns.
These sweet little wall vases are reminiscent of tin ware, perfect for a few flowers from the garden, or some fresh herbs in the kitchen.
