I learned about hand-built ceramics working as a bisquer at R Wood Studio (rwoodstudio.com). I also learned about gardening and looking for beauty in everything. These are some of the results of my search. The blueish alien or snail-like form in the foreground is a combination salt and pepper shaker that works really well despite its odd appearance. And I am especially proud of the ashtray that looks like a big vanilla-glazed doughnut. It makes me inspired (and hungry) every time I look at it.
