New work, new studio

I was able to fire for the first time in the new space this weekend.  I fired tiles and I tried to get all the lingering custom orders finished.  Some of the orders lingered longer than I liked.  I am glad to get new work made and I am glad to get the space into working order.  We found an old door to use as a big counter and I found some high metal spinning stools for sale for $10 each down the street from the house.  The stools are the perfect height for the counters and have a nice adjustable back to them... and they spin!  Whoot!  That's a bonus.

tidy :-)
Along the back wall are more shelves made into counter space and my tiles molds and clay is all along the bottom shelf across the entire room.....I am so glad that my fellas helped me move all that clay!
My mom made that sculpture for me when I was pregnant with Lydia ;-)
I really like how the colors turned out on my tiles.  I love when I have multiples of the same tile in the studio.  I look forward to the day when I have a space to tile with my own handmade tiles.  For now, these will go to the Tile Gallery.... I live very close to the Moravian Tile works in Doylestown, PA
That's a town known for handmade tile.
Yeah.... I LOVE how they turn out!  I need to make more....
I made some beads too.... The long buttons are an order to be used on a cape.  Isn't that cool?  I love being able to work with other artists :-)
Most of my paintings are still at my old house, but I did find a few painted glass panels that I had started years ago around the garage to decorate the studio and make it feel more like home.
New donuts! 
And last but not least here is the finished glazed fairy sculpture that Sonya gave to my mom for her birthday...  She loves it! 


  1. Looks like you have a nice workable space and have it all organized. Way to go.

  2. I love seeing where you work! And I love my new pendant I bought! :-)
