Yay! I am now selling on the boxsocial website, look me up under artists if you're interested! they also havemany other talented artists from Western Canada selling their works.

These wall pieces are examples of my unconventional mosaics that I make constantly at kilnhouse out of old shards of my work and weathered boards from my parents farm. I find their is a nice juxtaposition between the materials

Coming Up Next works

Here is my work that I am sending to the Alberta Craft Council in Edmonton today for the "Coming Up Next", show. Including a Tumbler Installation and some Jugs.

This is a new take on my porcelain cylinder vases that I've been making in the past year. This time I added hollow "branches" to the sides of each vase, creating a type of lace tree. I like that these pieces combine bring many elements together in an unexpected way. The rustic and pale outside contrasts with the bright commercial glazes of the inside, and the little red birdies just give a pop of color for your eye to hang on to. All of these are still for sale at my shop or contact me via email

New Branching Vases and Vintage Pendants

This is my latest grouping of my work shown here on the table in my showroom. Three Branching Vases made of porcelain and impressed with lace, along with many tumblers and mugs with hollow handles.

Here are some of the pendants I have recently made. They are fired three times to achieve this effect. The vintage images are permanent. Hung on real hand dyed silk, all my pendants cost $25!

Cupboard Installation....

Hollow Love Owl Sculpture

Hello Everybody!!!

This is my FIRST BLOG EVER, so please bear with me. I am an emerging ceramic artist, living in Fort St. John, British Columbia. I run a studio/shop named kilnhouse studio, which is open Fridays and Saturdays from 10-6. I am located at 10510 101 Ave. So come see me if you're in the area!! I make medium fire porcelain handbuilt objects. Some functional some sculptural as you'll see...I work a lot with mixing old and new, (vintage lace and commercial glaze). At the moment I am working on a series of hanbuilt hollow sculptural "love owls", along with some tumblers and jugs for a show that I recently got into named "Coming Up Next". I'm really excited about this is in Edmonton AB, at the Alberta Craft Council. If you're interested in buying anything that you see on the blog-just email me, I accept Visa/MC and am willing to ship anywhere!!
