I’ve been cranking out some new projects of late… and thus have fallen off the Blogging Express a little.
However, a friend recently reminded me that the Yuletide season is approaching, and that I’d better overcome my counter-commercial instincts and promote myself a bit.
If you’re interested in a custom-made piece of my work, you should contact me soon. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact form on this site. Basically- for work to be ready by Chrismas, I need to do my clay work by about the December 10.
I do, in point of fact, offer some pretty unique options for the generous of heart… especially if you’re into ceramics. Here are a few highlights.
All of my planters are Raku-fired, with mosaic style designs. I love working on commission, however. My designs typically emphasize wildlife, marine, or mythological elements… but I’m happy to work with your vision. Prices vary by size, ranging from $80 for a smaller planter to $120 for a larger, floor-sized model.
You’d probably want to involve your potential recipient in the design phase for one of these… but they’re unique, functional, and suffused with an inner glow.
Lanterns are a bit more intricate to make (multiple thrown elements, wiring, etc.), and sell in the $180-$250 range (depending on the size and level of detail in the design).
All of my drums are fully functional (sort of like Data from Star Trek the Next Generation... nyuk nyuk) - you can play your heart out. The tone is typically more staccato and ‘barking’ than a similar wooden drum… but there’s a lovely musical tone that’s unique to the ceramic material.
Drums sell in the $150-$250 range (size and form dependent)
Fountains are among my more elaborate creations, and sell for $250-$400 (size and design dependent). Hardware and pump included.
So- get in touch if you’ve got a unique person who deserves a unique piece of functional artwork- especially if you (or your friend) is enamored of mountains, sharks, waves, light through coastal cloudscapes, selkies, ents, gnarled trees by riversides, or anything else wet, wild, or wooly.
