Holiday Season is here!! Palomares Clubhouse, Castro Valley, Nov 13, 11-7pm, Nov 14 10-5pm

The holiday season is firmly upon us now, at least I am preparing for four straight weeks of holiday boutiques and events!

This weekend I will be at the Palomares Holiday Boutique in Castro Valley.  Friday, November 13th from 11 a.m. to 7pm, and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  This was an awesome event last year and I’m really looking forward to it!  Although with my expanded inventory, I’m not sure how I’m going to fit everything…



I have a ton of new items that I am bringing, everything is so colorful!

Harvest Festival at the Sunol Water Temple on Sept. 27th , 2015

Such a busy September! I will be at the Sunol Water Temple this Sunday for the Harvest Festival! Attendees will have a chance to stroll the pumpkin patch, select their own hand picked bouquet from the farm greenhouse, and more. Live music and food, and by current weather accounts… ACTUALLY PLEASANT!! 😀

Sunol Water Temple

Seriously, look how cool that thing is, come take awesome pictures and see art and hear music and stuffs! Lumpy Doodles will be there along with other artists selling jewelry, fiber arts, fused glass and gorgeous dichroic glass.

Fremont Art Association puts on Art in the Garden at Regan’s Nursery

This was a wonderful event! I was thrilled to be chosen to participate.

Game of Thrones Dinner Party!!

Having a dinner party? Planning a unique menu that you would like to easily identify for your guests? Planning any special items for friends with dietary restrictions??

These little name plates are perfect!! Because they are smooth and ceramic, they can be written on with a dry erase marker which wipes off clean with a damp cloth. Perfect for seating arrangements, marking areas for a buffet with items that are “dairy free” or “vegetarian,” or as an easy way to let guests know what’s in that savory smelling dish!

A Full Kiln is a Happy Kiln!!!

It’s always so much fun to see a kiln full of bright, beautiful pieces. Even better when some experimental risks pay off. I have been gearing up for a few art festivals, so it’s great to see everything come out okay.

Turkish Inspired Ceramics!

I traveled through Turkey 13 years ago and had the chance to visit a ceramics studio. It was so beautiful. Their style is very rich with tactile features and bright colors. I was inspired to try to do some pieces in a similar style. I’m so pleased with the results!

Recent Traditional Pieces

Here are a few recent items I’ve been working on, a little more of a traditional look.
