Why drink your iced tea, lemonade, milk, mojito or other beverage out of a boring glass when you can spice up your drink with these colorful handmade tumblers with blocks of color? I made each of these on my pottery wheel out of a gorgeous white stoneware clay that is very similar to porcelain.

While the clay was soft, I carved in a woodland forest design and then used pottery stains and glazes for the colors. Note the little owl perched on a branch in most designs. It's an artistic drawing or illustration built into a functional piece of pottery!

They each will hold at least 16 ounces of liquid and measure around 4.5" high x 3.5" across. This listing is for one tumbler. If you have a color preference: red, yellow, blue, purple, green or peach...just leave me a note in your message to seller at check out.

 Bring the outdoors inside with this original fine art watercolor painting.

Fall Aspens Original Watercolor Painting

This original watercolor painting of aspen trees in the fall brings the outdoors inside and is sure to brighten up most any space.....office, den, bedroom, hallway, nursery. It's an artistic piece of sophisticated art that is very affordable. A one of a kind original.

I used high quality Arches watercolor paper and Yarka paints for this image. You'll see some texture behind the trees and sun in this painting which are obtained through the use of some fine quality rice paper that was adhered to the watercolor paper and painted upon as well. I love the way the watercolors bleed into the tissue to give a more organic feel to the painting.

** SIZE: 20" x 24" matted and framed; image size is 11" x 13"

Artistic and functional, my handmade ceramic garlic keepers are the perfect way to keep garlic fresh without the mess of all the outside skin shedding in your cupboard. In fact, it's pretty enough to leave out on the countertop.

I make them on my pottery wheel out of durable, white stoneware clay, incising decorative holes in the sides and lid to allow air flow needed for the bulbs. I put a knob on the top that is whimsical and decorative, and complements the color and design of the rest of the pot.

I have these in a variety of colors and can make them in most any size you need. Most hold 2-3 garlic bulbs.
These lidded jars are available in my shop both online and physical shop in Steamboat Springs.

Wall Vase in Granny Square Design

$ 80 USD

My mom was a wonderful quilter and this vase is a tribute to her beautiful work. It's a  great piece of wall art as well as functional pottery. This sculptured and carved hanging vase makes a conversation piece for most any room of the house or just a wonderful, colorful piece of artwork for your best friend, boss, favorite aunt, etc.

I created this artistic vessel by handbuilding some porcelain/stoneware clay and then carving in the design which is reminiscent of granny squares in a patchwork quilt. I use pottery stains and glazes in shades of blues and greens for the color.

It's gorgeous with or without flowers inside and can be used to hold pens and scissors or other things as well.

This pocket vase measures 5" high x 10" across and about 1" deep and is designed to hold water if you wish to place fresh flowers in it. It has a hanging wire on the back and is ready to place anywhere in your home or office today.
