In addition to writing, I’m addicted to art generally. Some of the things I’ve done in my spotted career are: printmaking, manuscript illumination, spinning, weaving, natural dyes, maskmaking, felting, bookmaking (with pages, not ponies), pop-ups and origami. I’ve also done some playing around with lampwork and hot glass.
I fear this addiction is lifelong and incurable. It’s treatable, mind you, if you have enough art supplies.
On this page I’ll put some of the things I do. Others can be seen at Northern Pop-ups, the link to which is on “Favourite Sites” to the right.
The first two pictures are plates, made in majolica clay and glazed. These are low-fire, but food-safe.
I love making animal-themed pottery. Lizards are great as mug handles. Here are a few. The first one is my husband’s mug. The other two are ones I made to sell in the pet store.
Below those are some of my whistles, and at the bottom are some specialty pieces from other people’s collections.
