Welcome to TexasCeramics. We never know the path life will take us. I was first introduced to the world of ceramics by my parents and never in a million years thought it would become my livelihood. Thanks to the corporate world giving me the boot it is now how I make my living. I am grateful to my parents for taking the time to share with me a craft and trade I find fulfilling and fun.
My ceramic studio is located in the beautiful hill country of central Texas. It is west of Austin in the tiny community of Spicewood in Burnet County.
As a ceramicist I use many tools and mediums to create the pieces you see. I work with clay slip and block clay. My tools vary from my bare hands to plaster molds. My mediums include products that must be kiln fired to achieve the effects that you see. All ceramics I offer are made in my shop, I do not use imported bisque. The block clay and slip I use are purchased locally, as are the glazes, I use Mayco Colors and my kilns are from Cress Kiln of Carson City, Nv.
Not only am I ceramicist I am also a dog “Mom”, Bunny, Flash and Tucker are my Chihuahua's. Miss Bunny, Flash and Tucker supervise my work in the shop each and every day.
You can be assured that the ceramics sold by Texas Ceramics are genuine hand made by me. All pieces are made one at a time with my two hands. All clay I use is from the USA - actually it is mined in Van Horn, Texas. The color I use to finish my ceramics is from Mayco Color of Hilliard, Ohio. Other supplies I use are purchased from Armadillo Clay in Austin, Texas. My business supports other businesses here in the US and when buying from me you keep this circle going. Thank you for your continued support.
