I became a partner in the Houston Potters Guild Shop in 1990 when it located to Rice University Village in West University, Houston, Tx; and was with this prestigious local potters guild until it
closed its storefront location on Dunlavy St. Houston Texas in 2010. I continue to produce functional and decorative pottery as well as ceramic sculpture from my ClayThings Pottery and Sculpture
Studio in Cove, Texas. I welcome visitors to stop by for a visit. It is a most picturesque setting which you will enjoy. I have a great selection of pottery at affordable prices and I'm sure you will
find just what you are looking for.

Very alarming like the day I walked out to get into my car and "Smiley" was right there in the driveway. She then crawled up under my tire and lay there for a while.......until she got good
and ready to leave. I surely did not want to get bit trying to get into my car.

After 30 years working in the ceramic medium, I was determined to learn how to produce crystalline glazes. They are labor intensive but the results are fascinating.
This is the above pot with a close up view of the crystals. I used cobalt carbonate and manganese to get these crystals.
My first pots experimenting with crystalline glazes were small. This one I'm holding. I used copper carbonate for this glaze.
A close up of the above pot.....nice, delicate crystals.
