I make hand-built functional pottery embellished with botanical stamps and snarky, sarcastic and somewhat inappropriate words, i.e. curse words. My beloved grandmother is my inspiration. While she was a very sweet and proper Southern lady, she also cussed like a sailor! She was often heard muttering “well shit” just under her breath whenever something didn’t suit her. True to her salty and sweet nature, I use stamps and found objects to embellish the outside of my work with delicate flora and fauna along with a choice word or phrase. Red/brown stain brings out the impressions against the buff clay body, and bright glazes inside add a pop of color. All work is fired to cone 6 and is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
