Welcome

Most of my creations are inspired by nature's organic forms, colors, and textures, as well as, its creatures. While each piece is an object d'art, many of them also serves as a useful object. A celebration of the environment that nurtures us all, each creation is hand-crafted and one-of-a kind.

All of "In the Shade of the Sycamore Tree" creations are original designs and are individually hand-crafted. The handmade quality and creativity are what set my work apart from mass-produced products. Color, size, and texture variations contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.

I hope that you have as much fun looking and shopping as I have creating!

All of my creations are all designed & individually handcrafted by me. I like to keep my hands busy & love to work with Glass. I find Magic in the way glass magically transforms light & color into a visual dance and how clay can be manipulated into so many forms and structures.
