Thanks for all the love yesterday! So good to be part of this community. 🤗
Another wall tile to share. Home, flowers and chair...all about summer memories and sharing flowers and plant knowledge. I can't stop making flowers even though where I live we are deep into winter already. 🌸🌹🌼🌨❄❄

Hello! Thank you for following me on here. I'm camera shy and life shy (I'll resist the urge to delete this immediately!) I wanted to give a background of my pottery life. I have been working with clay for over 17 years. Hands up to artists over 40! I've had many side hustles, part time and full time jobs and an art degree in ceramics, while also figuring out how to have ceramics my full time job. A few years ago I found it impossible to have a ceramics business when I had my kids..so I stopped for 3 years! Which was hard. And I was a bit lost. During my haitus from clay I immigrated to Quebec in 2016. I find living in Canada has helped me find clay again and create a new passion for ceramics. The studio I joined in Montreal gave me my art life back! ( @markosavard ) daycare is cheap and the family benefits help moms tremendously. (USA you have a lot to learn from this province!) I have moved many times, PDX, California, Montreal, Arizona, Minnesota, back to Montreal and 6 months ago I moved to Gatineau. So I have found keeping clay and glazes simple is important. Clear or white glaze with a mostly porcelain clay. Each time you move, clay options and materials change. Now I have a home studio in my basement which isnt so pretty but works. I live with my husband, my two boys ages 5 & 6 and an old rescue dog from Tucson. I am quiet but I really enjoy people and cocktails and If you live in ottawa or near me please say Hi. I need pals honestly!

I had my first appointment with an osteopath 🙌 to help fix my shoulder this morning. Feeling relaxed and glad I took some time off this year from making too much production. Sadly my two boxes of pottery that were to be part of @objecthandmadestudio #krampusmrkt have been stuck in Ottawa because of the postal strike. Which I support strikes!! only I wish it wasn't my pottery stuck in a truck. 😭😭

Snake mugs. Creative and transformative symbols for me. I was born the year of the snake and my grandmother made me a cup when I was child with my name written in snake letters. So it feels good to put some on my own cups.🐍 #snake #etsyseller #etsycanada #faitalamain #handbuiltpottery #handbuiltceramics #tasse #potterylove #potterforall #howiamaco #pshclay #mugsofinstagram
