I make my ceramic dishes, bowls and little vases at home by hand. I use stoneware clay and make slips and glazes myself from stones, sand, soils and sediments I collect near and far. Each piece is unique and sets the scene for a display in the tradition of Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging). The bowl represents the earth, the shallow water reflecting light an essential part of the scene on which two or three stems of wild or cut flowers are set.
Everyone is creative and I hope you accept the invitation to create a little indoor garden of your own with stones, sprigs, stems and flowers from a place special to you. A still oasis in our now fast, noisy virtual world.
“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us”
