I’ve been busy at home carving and printing a new series of linocut notecards. Here are the latest 3!!! You can see all notecards by visiting the PRINTMAKING section from the menu at the top of this page.
I’m SUPER EXCITED that printmaking season has started at my studio!
Here is my first group of linocut notecards: The art is 6″x4.5″ printed on a 7×5″ notecard. The notecard is made from acid-free, heavyweight paper made with 100% post consumer recycled materials. The ink is made in Chicago, the paper made in Michigan (both about 5 hours from my studio). An envelope is included-so you can share my art by mail to your friends and family!!
These are a hand made products made by me in Old Washington, Kentucky. The designs are hand carved, inked by hand, then put through a hand cranked press. No computers or electricity involved.
I just opened the kiln–i had some wonderful goodies, like these little cream pitchers. I don’t know why they got me so excited, but they sure are cute!
Another exciting thing is that I’ve ben experimenting with greens, and have some new results.
Here’s a gallery that shows EVERYTHING that was in today’s firing. Click the arrows or swipe to see all the different pieces from the firing
if you are looking for a unique Valentine’s Day gift, one of these pots might be the perfect thing for you!
I don’t ship or sell online. Pottery should be seen (and picked up) in person before you can truly know if it’s ‘the one’ for you. You can see them in person this Wednesday (February 9th) from noon- 6pm at my studio (studio 400) at the Pendleton Art Center in downtown Cincinnati. Contact me me for more information–or you can visit this facebook link to RSVP:
the carving is done, now i just have to let it dry, put a clear glaze on it. It’ll go through the kiln twice, and if all goes well, this little fox bowl will be able to serve your morning oatmeal or soup, or whatever warms you up on these cold winter days!
If today’s kiln opening (the first of 2022) is any indicator of what the new year is going to bring-it’s going to be a great year!!!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I made plenty of red and love themed pots. They would make the perfect gift for that special someone who appreciates a hard carved one of a kind work of art that can be used everyday to eat or drink.

As an artist, sometimes there’s a conflict between my creative ideas and REALITY. I’ve had to accept that the front porch idea loses its charm in winter. It’s too cold, and I don’t feel right encouraging people to take an unnecessary long drive in the country during winter.
HERES MY NEW PLAN: The porch will be open over the weekend, but after that, I’m bringing all the pottery to my studio at the Pendleton Art Center Cincinnati. I’ll be there once a week (still deciding the date-probably Wednesdays – what week day works for you?), you’ll be able to visit and take your time while looking at the different pots (and other art) in a heated space.
Sorry for the abrupt pivot, and hope to see you soon!!!
Here’s a sneak peek at another clay work in progress. It’s a porcelain lidded jar.
The carving is all finished. if it makes it though the kiln firings *fingers crossed*, it will be bright red and black on porcelain. Would make a great container for salt, sugar, relish, mustard, honey, etc.
Stay tuned to see how it turns out!
