Each of my clay creations is made from either stoneware or porcelain and is reduction fired to cone 10. Miniatures are my specialty in claywork. Each vessel is hand thrown on the potter's wheel, trimmed, footed, and signed. I also enjoy doing small sculptures such as cats, turtles, and birds.
I create each of my glass beads that I use in my jewelry using a technique called lampworking or flameworking. I design each bead using layers of Moretti glass and often incorporate fine silver or other metals in the process. After the torch process, beads are put in a small kiln for annealing. All the asssembly work is done in either sterling silver or 14K gold-fill. These photos show just a small sampling of what I love to do!
