I have been making little watercolors lately for friends. It has been so long since I have painted. Getting in touch with this part of my creativity is opening new doors for my ceramic work. Worlds are colliding!!
The forest is calling! This week I took a little vacation. Turned off the electronics, strapped on my snowboard and made the mountain my roller coaster. This kind of engagement with nature is such a gift!
Red Rock Canyon is like another planet... Nature's passage of time is documented in craggy multicolored glory.
I am feeling so recharged after this week. Disconnecting really helps to center my focus. Next on my list- firing my greenware mugs and experimenting with surface.
When I was a kid, I lived in a new outcropping of homes bordering the Southern California hills. Runs through them still bring me a sense of calm and focus. Body and mind. Out in the hills I am free to open my heart and let the countryside tell me its secrets.
Sketching forms in the winter sunshine as the trees dance with the wind. I love this part of winter. Quiet moments like this are treasure.
Barnacle Planters and Mini Coral Line cups placed in the kiln for bisque firing. This moment is always a release. A moment of letting go as the kiln will have its way!
Sweet lavendar sunset. This color is so obsessing me lately. A sort of orchid lavendar rich, soft, and yet somehow boldly authentic. Unfortunately this is one of those things a camara eye can never capture.
This weekend I'm photographing what didn't get shipped in orders. Posting them next week! Much more to come.

I discovered this shop thanks to IAMTHELAB's post recently. This shop is filled with gorgeously authentic work handmade by artists and designers in the US. If you are in town, be sure to stop by or check out their beautiful web shop!
In a tranquil nook off the crazy tourist path of Hollywood Blvd lies Otherwild.
Jo Boyer's work was one of my favorites. The photo does not do it justice, but you can see more of her work here.
Gorgeous goods bordering on the mystical...
The shop is filled with handcrafted authentically created wares.
The shop owner had a great eye for fresh, authentic, and magical objects. I will definitely be back!
