A few highlights from 2021! A HUGE thank you to everyone that has supported my art, bought pieces, invited me (or accepted me) into juried art shows, or commissioned custom work this year!

This year, I was able to complete my studio (thanks to my amazing hubby Matt Bacon Graphic Design)!! I began teaching ceramics professionally as a visual arts instructor, have been accepted in more juried shows than ever (some international ๐Ÿคฉ), was invited to work on some public art projects, produced and sold more work than I ever have in the past, was invited to more pop-up markets, and was invited to teach a workshop.

COVID has tossed me into the unknown and pushed me to work harder than ever. I'm seeing the fruits of my hard work, but I could have done it without my family and so many of my friends supporting and encouraging me!! I don't have words to show my appreciation!

The year isn't over yet, I have a few more pieces on the way and a few commissions I'm finishing up. If you'd like to reach out for custom work, I'Il be accepting new commissions sometime around the middle of January.

2021 has exploded with opportunities, and I can't wait to see what 2022 brings!! โ˜•๏ธโฃ๏ธโœจ

Aloe there!! ๐Ÿชด โ€œSand and Seaโ€ Flower pot & aloe plant with 2 aloe babies, $30.

Flower pot is stoneware, handthrown on the wheel. The lip is hand carved to create texture in the surface. I used a creamy sand-colored glaze with hints of turquoise. The color combo was inspired by the beach and the seaside. I only glazed the top portion so that the bottom portion can hold in moisture so that you can go longer between waterings. I put a small hole in the bottom for drainage.

Local/Northeast Ohio only.
Please message me if youโ€™re interested!

(They should be fine for about a year or 2 in this size pot. Eventually youโ€™ll have to replant into a bigger planter. But by then it should be providing you with new babies that you can replant into this pot. ๐Ÿ˜Š Looking for the perfect gift? Itโ€™s the gift that keeps on giving!!)
