Keeping away the brain freeze in frigid February

Here in Western New York we’ve been blessed with a fairly mild winter. My neighborhood received its first major winter storm just a few days ago.

Thanks to my sunny studio and a roaring gas fire, (heartfelt thank you to my wonderful husband for fixing the blower!) I have been able to design and produce no matter the weather.

Here are a few of the things I have been working on…




Thanks to all…

Sending a great big thank you hug to Rose for hosting Over the Buffalo Moon jewelry and decorative pottery today at DeJa Vu Haircutting Room on Park Avenue in Lockport.  

Thanks to all who came out to support us as well- it was wonderful meeting you and I hope we see each other again in the new year!

To all who supported and followed me in this amazing new venture, I wish the merriest of merryment and a very memorable new year!!  

Thank you again and see ya soon….

Raku and Rain

A few days ago, some of us here in Western New York experienced some extremely heavy rains, causing a some flash flooding, along with a bit of a muddy mess!  I decided to work on some horse hair and raku pottery while the skies were beginning to clear…

Here are two of my favorite pieces from last Saturday’s firing~
