From rags to roses

I love experimenting, repurposing and sharing the creative fun with the blog world! 

And seeing all the new viewers visiting from across the world,

brings a smile to my heart, hello Russia !

 ...curious about the technique I use to create these sweet little

 embellishments on my ceramic vase designs.

You may view the process by clicking here.

I am using soft cotton fabric, 

mostly old T-shirts, that I dip in liquid clay and artfully twist 

and attach to the form that is also still wet clay,

before putting in for firing.

It is a very messy process 

but so much fun, and well worth the effort!

Спасибо, что посетили мой мир!
Не стесняйтесь, пишите мне с вопросами, я всегда рад поделиться.

Anthropologie New York City

This is one of my all time favorite haunts for inspiration!

Hand crafted owls, perched on tree branches 

greet you as you enter...

The layered abundance of displays are a feast for the imagination!

I would love this cart to store all the ceramics I've created 

that are taking over my studio!

Great use of plumbing pipes and the amazing paper background!

Sweet and unexpected lace insert on this sweater!

I have a thing for boxes and drawers...

and these are so fun!

Fabulous layered frame wall!

I love the feminine feel of this display!

This is such a great table for a working studio!!!

Even the employees and customers add inspired style!

Just wanted to share the creative inspiration...

Window shopping in New York

I escaped from my work world of carpenters, plumbers, 

painters, electricians and gardeners 

and spent a few days shopping new inspiration in New York. 

 The weather was classic fall, and perfect for traipsing all over town 

with my camera and iPad to capture these photos and share the fun here.
