Black Jacket Symphony Jay

A recent pen and ink drawing featuring Jay Willoughby of the Black Jacket Symphony. It’s been a while since I’ve done any pen and ink portraits. This is an example of a more “loose” style that I’m trying to fine tune.

Upside Down Tears

This is a large shallow bowl/plate created using a smooth, durable stonewear clay. It measures approx. 10 inches wide, is safe for food use and dishwasher safe. Very durable glazes and gloss over glaze used.

I found this image online and loosly recreated and altered it. I’m starting to really enjoy the challenge of kiln firing a painting you’ve spent hours creating. Some survive, some crack and explode in the kiln. Pottery’s real lesson is patience.

Leaf Cello Player


This is a acrylic painting that measures 2 ft wide x 4 ft tall. My Mom claimed this painting as soon as I was finished and it now hangs in her home. I can recreate this painting using your color choices and framed to your specs.

Beneath an Orange Sky

This was created using an old book, lots of glue, a little pottery clay and paint. I used a router to dig the square hole in the book about halfway through the thickness, then painted the sunset. The figure is made from clay and represents my wife enjoying a sunset. Once all was assembled, it was given to my wife as a present. I hope she liked it…….

Angel in the Sky

I painted this angel as part of a three painting series. This was the second. I’ve always liked the elongated neck and the off-center placement.

Rustic Glazed Pitchers

These are hand built from stacking clay coils individually and ensuring a watertight seal with each added layer. The glazed used was a happy accident that I wish I knew the formula, so that I could recreate and use more often. The larger vessel could be used for tea, while the smaller would be perfect for coffee creamer…..or really anything. All are glazed with a food-grade safe glaze and dishwasher safe.

Handcoiled Rustic Bowl

This bowl is handmade by rolling individual coils and stacking them one on top of the other to create the desired look and feel. It measures approx. 7 inches wide like a standard bowl and the glaze used is food grade and dishwasher safe. I made 1 gallon of this glaze and loved the results, but did not write down what I mixed, so recreating this exact glaze is now impossible. Available now for $25
