Horse Hair Pottery!

Just finished two pieces featuring the hair from my niece’s horses in Colorado. (Twister and Daisy kindly donated some of their hair after grooming!) Special thanks to their owner Jill!

These pots will be donated to a local charity fundraising event: The Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York (LAUNY) Diva’s Treat Raffle

Experimenting with new techniques!

My first scheduled show is in March so I am taking this time to design new jewelry and try out a few interesting techniques. Since I have been working with Sterling flatware in some of my designs, I have a bit of silver left over to play with.

I decided to try a version of reticulation, the process of creating a textured surface using a torch to bring the metals to a high temperature. 

Here are some of my first attempts!

Stay tuned for my upcoming spring and early summer show schedule!
