Blog-based Pottery Sale 2009

Welcome to my 2nd annual blog-based pottery sale. It's a very no-frills approach to internet shopping. There's no shopping cart or fancy buttons. You'll have to work with me via email or phone.

Here's the rules:

If you see an item you want to purchase, please email me the item number. My email address is I will email you back to confirm your purchase or to notify you that the piece has already sold. I will update the sales status on the blog as often as I can. My goal is to avoid disapointments. But, all items are one-of-a-kind and offered on a first-come first-served basis.

I accept checks or cash only. I will make payment arrangements with you by email when I confirm your purchase. Tax is included, but shipping (if necessary) is additional. Please respond quickly if you need your piece before Christmas.

Satisfaction is guaranteed. If you do not like a piece once you receive it you may return it for a full refund (minus shipping costs).

Here are some general details about my work. It is all white stoneware fired in an electric kiln to cone 6-7. It is wheelthrown, carved and decorated by hand. Each piece is one-of-a-kind. All pieces are food safe and may be put in the dishwasher, microwave and oven (when appropriate). I have included multiple views of some pieces. If you have any questions regarding the work or the rules please don't hesitate to email or call me at 715-277-5099.

These ornaments are made from flat slabs of clay. I cut the shapes with cookie cutters and then use stamps and carving tools to create each individual ornament. They are finished with twisted copper wire hanger. Ornaments are $10 each and come in a variety of colors as listed below:

Earth Angel: available as shown

Butterfly: available in many colors and patterns, no two alike. I will pick one for you.

Cross: available in bronze, blue, green or light yellow

Moon: available in blue and pale green

Snowflake: available in blue, pale green and pale yellow

Bluebird of Peace: available as shown

Thanks for looking. Have a happy, healthy holiday season and fantastic new year!
