INSPIRATION THROUGH EXPLORATION:
We are taking a break and headed off into the desert for some off-the-grid time this Thanksgiving week.
I will be returning emails and filling orders when I return, if you want to start your holiday shopping early, don’t forget, the online shop is open 24/7!
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
I’m so happy to share that two Lichen Series pieces have found the perfect forever home!
There was a lot of time and contemplation that went into this installation but it was so worth it, they really look perfect in this entry hallway. More pics will be up on the website soon!
About the Lichen Series:
The Lichen Series are vertical stalk shaped structures which have a variety of ceramic lichen inspired pieces emerging from and fused to them. This series play with ideas of death and regrowth, the power of negative space and the contrast of dark and light. These pieces are hand-built and hand-carved from high fired stoneware and each piece is original and unique. There are 7 more available for purchase.

These pieces from the Lichen Series haven’t been shown very much, so if you haven’t seen these pieces in my studio, I finally got some good photos of these three trees and they are up on the website now!
The Lichen Series is about new growth from the old, in these pieces the ceramic lichen forms are growing on California black walnut planks that came from a storm fallen tree. The glazed ceramic pieces are inspired by the structures of shelf fungus and have been placed in compositions that follow and enhance the natural grain of the wood. Read more here…
If you’re interested in purchasing them, please contact JCO’s Art Haus in Los Gatos.
After nearly going through my entire inventory of Art Hearts at Open Studios this year, I’m slowly restocking the online shop. So if you wanted to get some house warming gifts for the upcoming holidays or just for yourself… get um while they last!
Now back in the shop are Deep Red Winged Hearts and Purple DREAM Hearts in both ornaments and on metal stems.
