A triptych meant to show windmills and their evolution and the environment they are familiar with. The left frame is a nineteenth century windmill with Midwestern corn. The middle frame is of a wind turbine which is actually in the ocean. Yes, in the ocean. Wind is everywhere and so are turbines. The right is a 13th century windmill from Western Europe.

First pinch pot I ever made. Raku fired.
Raku fired coil pot. Turned our metallic and the Raku firing made for a spontaneous affect.
Pinch pot and result of happy accident. This pot was made in opposition to my other daintier pottery. Inspired by a rose but made to look strong, this piece is my favorite. I used blue glaze but did not have enough coverage so pot showed in many areas. I took gold acrylic paint to fix this situation. The blue and gold effect makes for a regal tone to the piece while still appearing playful.
Originally this pot was perfect but an unstable bottom resulted in it collapsing. Instead of restarting I worked with the organic nature of the pot. Inspired by Impressionism I created a series of small groves. One student suggested that it looked like a bee hive, so using that as inspiration I painted this pot with thinned down acrylic paint with thick varnish as an overcoat. I have dubbed this pot my “honey pot”.
