I am so very lucky to live in a most bountiful place, surrounded by trees, flowers, streams, and stars. All of this natural beauty impresses itself into my artwork much like I impress leaves into clay. My husband and I have planted hundreds of trees on our farm since we moved here so many years ago.
I have collected leaves, bugs and other natural ephemera for as long as I can remember, I’m still partial to the red leaves of fall. When I started making “leafy” pottery I tried to turn clay leaves into bowls and such but the age old question asked by many through the years is “but can you eat spaghetti out of it?” No.
I did find ways to use leaves to print onto thrown ware and tiles, from super simple to extra detailed.
My latest leaf product has come full circle, individual ceramic leaves that can hang on the wall or sit on a table, or both. Click on store in the upper left corner to see all of my products.
