What time of day are you most productive?

I prefer afternoons to other parts of the day. My other chores are up to date and I can focus on my art. Many days I lose track of time and work well into the evening.

What new items are you currently working?

Colanders, garlic pots and bird feeders. I recently purchased a clay slab roller – a fun new device – and am looking forward to creating new platters and other functional items.

Dream vacation? Where would you like to go and why.

We are heading to Iceland and Scotland in the fall. Both countries offer unique history, geographies, people and art.

Amazing new work3038And the inspiration….

The window with the geraniums is the inspiration for the piece and I included the curtain from the brown window.  I thought that making the entire window pane area black would be too heavy.  So the white curtain and black spacing works well.
