2 : a person into whom some quality (as grace) is infused

ceremonyWe invite others into our lives and if we are lucky, the connection grows and drops seeds of new life all around us.  When we choose to invite the special people in our lives to share in an important occasion, they are more than spectators.  My pieces celebrate and invite attendees to participate. A stone, poem or trinket from a shared moment of childhood bring a unique element that you alone can appreciate and share.  My porcelain vessels are often chosen to highlight the precious, pure nature of the moment being celebrated.  The white porcelain also lends itself to being signed by attendees which can then can be baked at home to adhere signatures permanently.

Recently I created a vessel for a minister who mingles sand as a representation of the joining of two lives, unique and individual, but forever inseparable as the grains of sand. So eloquent and I am so pleased to share the gift of a porcelain vessel to highlight the contents of that special ceremony.

Created for a Celebration of Life memorial, friends and loved ones shared thoughts about her which were transferred to the luminary. In addition small leaves where made for each attendee to take with them as a memory of the day.

Wedding, birth, graduation or memorial, it is my honor to create vessels that become an important part of the moment being celebrated. Like the individuals they celebrate, no two vessels are exactly alike, crafted by my hands alone.
