We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Ferric Chloride Pottery

 Well, Bruce tried something different. He took a workshop with a Potter who uses this technique and this is what he came out with. The clay body is a Raku so there is no functional quality to these pieces unless you place containers inside of them to hold water.

 The pattern in the black rim was carved with a needle tool and sealed.

 This vase has a more classic form and was carved into while leather hard and pigmented with oil paint and sealed.
