I have been an artist my entire adult life. I did the very first Portland Saturday Market and realized there was a way to make a living doing what I loved. I have been very lucky to have lived this life. Thanks!
I make each piece one at a time. I use no molds or other forms of reproduction. I use a white porcelain clay that is very strong and durable. I hand mold each piece using only a knife, a bamboo skewer and a rolling pin for night lights and lamps. After drying, I paint the colors with paints made of ground minerals. I bisque fire the pieces, paint accent colors and dip the finished pieces in a clear glaze and fire again to 2,200 degrees. The work is all lead free and nontoxic. The colors can never fade or wash off.
