Sharing

I have a few favorite potters that I follow and today I would like to share Lisa Naples of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. She is a Earthenware potter & sculptor. She does whimsical illustrated pieces that tell a story.  A technique I am always drawn to.  I admire her work and hope to take her workshop one day.

I took up Earthenware this year, quite different than the Porcelain I use in the majority of my work.  I sent Lisa a email with a few questions.  I was bowled over when she returned with an actual phone call!  Saying it was faster to call than type. Such a sweet person and eager to help other potters.  Since that time I have purchased a few items from her, not being able to restrain myself any further.  I often buy cups from other potters that inspire me.  Lisa inspires me to the extent a cup was not enough.  I went for the goat mug,  a goat in the kitchen, how unusual!   I also added her cute bird creamer to my collection.  I find myself using Mr Goat most often for my morning coffee and the creamer is the best size for filling the coffee machine with water and has a permanent place in my kitchen window with a view of the bird feeders!  See them below.  You can check out her other work at www. lisanaples.com.

Cups II

Hi, glad you found my blog. And a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! The only time I celebrate my Irish heritage, 🍀🍀.

As I sit here in Richmond VA, taking a break from the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I am missing my studio.  Visions of sugarplums dancing in my head, my brain is full of designs that I have great intention of creating!! In the meantime I can share another cup or two.  Nothing new to my present followers,  A sampling of Hand Painted.

PEAR CUPS

Pears were a favorite last summer. They are hand painted on porcelain, a few different orientation of Pears. I will return to these for this summer, maybe Bosc Pears?

PEAR CUPS

Crab cups, another design I have had calls for. Recently I have done Red ones. Here they are too.

Forgive my simple site right now. After my return home I can have more choices when I am at my main computer. In the meantime I missed our last big storm and enjoying sandal weather in the East. 😂😜  Talk at you later!

Beach Poppy Series

Emerald Leaf Series

Cups are a staple in the functional  kitchen ware. I have several patterns that I keep in the line.

Beach Poppy: My imagination designed a simple splattered tan/brown background glaze, with a orange/red poppy blooming on a deserted beach.

Emerald Leaf: is a leaf design slip trailed thru the piece. A green matt glaze with a over spray of gloss glaze, resulting in a satin  and shiny glaze with crystals of blue & sometimes lavender shining thru. This color is easy on the eyes and will compliment any kitchen.
