An Artist Journey - The ups and downs of creation, and how to keep moving forward.

The Fill Your Cup Irish Tour

I am embarking on a journey. Although, I will physically be traveling alone, I am taking my creativity, my pottery, and all of you along in my heart. I invite you to come along via my Facebook and Instagram feeds to see what kind of shenanigans this potter can get into.  A few weeks ago I was on a walk with someone when the topic of “Is the glass half full, or half empty?” came up. This man had a very interesting perspective that I had not considered before. He said, “It depends whether you are filling it, or emptying...

Composing the Symphony of Your Life

Their are times in life when everything just fits together perfectly. The perfect symphony, where mathematics and magic come together, enter your ears to transport your heart to a higher level.

You wouldn’t go out to eat and just let the waitress bring whatever is lying around the kitchen for you to consume. Yes, they may bring something delicious and unexpected, or...

The Gratitude Button Game

I started a little game with my daughters that we call the gratitude button game. To be completely honest I am the one who needed this game the most. I had all of these handmade clay buttons from the button pots that I make. Many times I make a few extra, and I never had the heart to put them in the reclaimed clay, their was just something about them. So I would set them aside, not exactly knowing what I was going to do with them. My daughters love the buttons, so I glazed and fired a few of...
