A BIT ABOUT ME & MY STUDIO: I make each and every pot by myself in my own studio called “Dancing Dolphin Pottery” in Ohio, USA. (No studio assistants). I throw these pots on my potter's wheel and fire them in my electric kiln. I love to make these pots! They bring me such joy! As I sit down at my wheel I first bring in Reiki energy to connect with the clay. This energy opens up my creativity and grounds me to Mother Earth. Then I try to listen to what the clay would like to become. When I know that this small ball of clay will be a mug, I form a picture in my inner eye of the shape that I desire. Then my hands and my muses do the rest! Of course, the 5 years of pottery classes and 10 years of practice doesn't hurt! But--there's a point when you let go of all that you've learned and just BE. I highly recommend that everyone with a passion for pottery take a pottery class to experience it for yourself!

HOW I PUT WORDS AND DECORATIONS ON MY POTTERY: The designs that I use on my pottery are the crop circle patterns that please me the most. I print my own laser decals on a laser printer and it's the iron oxide of the toner that burns into the pots in a special 3rd kiln firing. This extra step requires more materials (decals & toner), labor (I spend about 30 min. designing each piece) and electricity. This is why my personalized pots with decals are more expensive than “stamped” personalized pieces. But, of course they are worth it! My pots are high fired to cone 5 for durability and are dishwasher and microwave safe. Also, only lead-free glazes are used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
