My Raku Pottery can be purchased at the Marble Gallery in Marble, CO!

Beautiful Marble Gallery in Marble, CO has such a wonderful blend of art works in a variety of media. They have carried my raku pottery, raku wall pieces and raku sculpture for years. If you’ve never been to Marble, I surely encourage you to visit. It’s a historical spot and the beautiful marble from the mines there (called Marble marble) is utilized in many municipal buildings in the United States and it gets shipped overseas for use also! AND, if you like Barbeque, Slow Groovin Barbeque is fabulous and I highly recommend it!

Marble Gallery customers are watching me as I demonstrate how designs are placed on raku wall pieces. It was fun visiting and talking with interested persons about raku pottery!

Custom Urn

This urn was for a family member who loved elephants. First, I threw the urn form on the potter’s wheel and trimmed the bottom the next day. Then I ‘drew’ the elephant on a thin slab of clay, added the design detail, cut it out and added it to the still damp urn form by a joining technique called ‘scoring and slipping’. From that point forward, the elephant addition and the urn are one piece.
