A Peek at my Winter White Pottery . . .



My Winter White Pottery is available! Inspired by the pristine soft folds, drifts, and glistening light of freshly fallen snow. . . these bowls have a beautiful organic feel. Each one has its own defining characteristics, so no two are alike.  Just delivered a nice assortment to the Artful Deposit in Bordentown City, NJ in time for the Winter Gala this Saturday February 12th . . . Hope to see you there!
