These pieces have evolved from a craftsy project made with my daughter on long summer days. She loved to press a real leaf into a slab of clay, cut around the edges, and shape that into a plate. Soon all the neighborhood kids joined in until all the surrounding families had plates, ornaments, trivets and wind chimes plus plenty of treasured gifts to give. I made pieces alongside the young ones, working to combine the simple pleasure of spontaneous creation with complex functional forms that maintain their sculptural interest. These evolved over a decade to produce this week's kiln load. Click on the image for more information.



Enjoy! Hope you find something that brings you back to the magic of a summer day from the eyes of a child.
