“FINE WARES FOR INTREPID WAYFARERS” ~ Handcrafted ceramic jewelry & figurines. Check out my Etsy !

I’m launching a little Etsy store to sell the various things I’ve been making, 1.) for the joy of making and giving art, and 2.) to support my love of pottery, which isn’t a cheap hobby.

I’ve been inspired by everything from the scenes I’ve seen traveling in the North Cascades, Washington and Ghana, to designs in Estonian and Nordic embroidery. I keep a journal everywhere I travel and leaf through it for ideas when I’m crafting.

To the right is my favorite thing I’ve made so far– I gifted it to my wonderful & talented cousin Malado Baldwin, who wears it very well.

 

Below is a me, wearing one of my creations last summer. I love everything I make, but am happier giving it away. And nothing makes me feel better than seeing someone I know own and enjoy something I’ve made. These items are all listed with ‘friend’ prices–holler if there’s anything you’d like, because in a couple days I’ll be putting these on Etsy.

I absolutely love pine trees. Those rugged, geometric silhouettes, the way they catch the light. Pines make me think of places that are wild and cold and far. They crop up a lot in my charms.

Mint creature– combination of minty blue glaze and white underglazes, food safe.

Bear candelabra

IMG_7549 I’m really fond of this one— it has a nice heft to it, and really interested smears and swoops in the glaze. The white marks around the middle are lace-like. Inside is melted glass. It’s all completely food safe.

Below are things I’ve made and sold– if anyone expressed interest I’d make more. I love the idea of making things specifically for people.
