in my hometown state today. 42 years after Stonewall.
Now it's time for my children's hometown state--come on California!

With the exciting growth of my ceramics works- I had been eyeing the cottage we have in our backyard that is near the coop studio-but has its own distinct charm- it is a loft like space that is reminiscent of what was good about 1970's california handmade wooden houses. We had been renting it out for years- but the studio was bursting--and my family was getting tired of my pieces taking over the entire house.
So we reclaimed this space and set to work making it my showroom/office, shipping station and-- just a lovely place to hang out and relax too. Soaring Monterey Cyprus peak through the skylights and the sun sets around the room in a very poignant way.
My husband built the Donald Judd inspired tables that hold the goods- Now when people want to come by the studio- they can come through the verdant garden gate-brush by the koi pond and enter a dedicated ceramic space. The dirty work is all still being done in the coop-but this is an exciting expansion for me--and completes the rancheria we love so much here in the middle of San Francisco....
