For a while I made delicate porcelain vases and bowls with ruffled edges. I am not currently producing these, but I do still have some lovely pieces left. Tall vases with ruffled edges start at $45, in white with pastel ruffles. I also have some "coral reef" bowl-like sculptures with pastel ruffled edges, and some bowls and vases with delicate petal decorations. These also start at $45, depending on the size and glazes. Please inquire if you are interested and would like to see images of the other pieces I have left.

Yarn Dolls

"Ostara" doll with basket of flowers and Easter egg"Ostara" doll with basket of flowers and Easter egg, $16.95
I have been having fun making yarn dollies like those we made or had when we were kids. I enjoy playing with various special yarns to give the dolls added character. And some are decorated with accessories - perhaps a basket of flowers, a hat, a broom, a beaded necklace, a baby, and so on. They are about 6 inches tall.  Dolls can have skirts or pants.

Calligraphy and illumination

custom scroll I occasionally create custom illuminated pages, in the style of some of the Books of Hours from the Middle Ages (though not as elaborate as some of those).  These are created on heavy weight acid free paper with India ink and gouache watercolor paints.  A clear sealer can be applied, if necessary.  Price will depend on the amount of text and illumination involved.  A page (8.5 x 11 or 9 x 12 inches) starts at $75, unframed.

Hand embroidered fabric

I sometimes have fun "painting with a needle", doing hand embroidery. I especially like leaves, flowers, vines and similar designs from the world of nature. I use cotton floss and cotton blend fabrics for the most part, occasionally splurging on silk. Most are in the 6 inch size range; some are bags, some are unfinished. Here are some of my more recent creations. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a piece.
