Welcome! I've set up this blog to show the process of creating 12 custom 5-piece place settings out of stoneware clay. I will do my best to stay fairly current with what is happening in my studio. Please stop by often to see the progress!

Dinner is served...

by candlelight no less! What a pretty eating nook; it's no wonder my customer picked the two glazes she did. The colors are perfect. Everything is so nicely coordinated-- even the food! I just had to show off how nice the dinner and salad plates look, even with meatloaf!

Tomorrow I take the b and b plates out of the kiln. If all goes according to plan, I will take pictures and pack them up to be delivered to the Thanksgiving table. :)

Up early

Here it is a Saturday morning, mid November and I'm up early having started the kiln at 5 am. Loaded with stuff. Custom orders mostly and "getting ready for Christmas" pots. But the big things are my babies: the last of the bread and butter plates and alas, the end of this big order. Next post will show all 12, ready to ship for the Thanksgiving table...

I'm up and early this morning; could hardly wait to open my kiln! I just took out the first four bread and butter plates. I will be firing more this week...
