Leaves and Birds and Trees and Paw Prints

I fired the kiln Thursday and I always love opening the kiln the next day! Yesterday, as I was unloading the warm bisque pieces, I thought about how much fun it is to see everything after firing.   My kiln is in a shed in the backyard, so on the way into the studio, I [...]

Beauty is all around us!  Do you take the time to notice?  We are so busy every minute of every day.  I hear people complain about not having enough time to do the things they want to do.  Have you ever said those words?  Have you said “if only I had the time” or “I’m [...]

Welcome to Dapple Dog Pottery!

Welcome to Dapple Dog Pottery! I have been working with clay since about 1990 and I love the feel of the clay and turning it into functional piece of art.  In 2008, I had the opportunity to buy a wheel and really devote more time to my pottery.   That’s when I decided to set [...]
