The Great Dragon Lamps

They are the largest I've made, just shy of 2 feet long and are a feat of engineering.  There is a system to lower them into the kiln without breaking. And they pretty much have to just sit in place while glazing.


Raw clay is about 20#, finished product with glaze come close to 25#.  Right now they range from $300 to $500, but the half size is $150- $200.  I don't bring the massive dragons to all shows; usually only indoor places where I know the display will be stable.

The Celtic suff

 By "Celtic", by and large I mean Irish or Irish inspired, unless otherwise noted.

I people love these crosses and I've had more than one customer buy one after traveling to Ireland.  Which baffled me, until I too went there.  Then the reality of luggage limits hit you.  Every trip I'm mailing myself back books and sundry things a couple days before my flight; it is usually cheaper than buying more luggage space.  Shipping back pottery or stone would be a nightmare.

Mar sin e...


I made a series inspired by the Book of Kells.  Which sounds exciting until one encounters all the people who love Celtic/Irish things but have never heard of the Book of Kells.  I ndáiríre? So here I am all pleased with myself I can make knots freehand without tracing or copying, while the customer nods, blankly.  As long as they sell....


Fish with freeform spirals and design work, inspired by salmon and trout.

Christmas 2021 at the Market

 

This was my last time selling at PSM.  I don't know when or if I'll be back.  Several problematic issues have been on going, but the most immediate is mismanagement, specifically the failure to offer storage back after sabbatical as stated in documentation.  Without storage I cannot sell.  


I will not say more at the moment.  Persons still spreading unfounded rumors or  personal information without consent are cautioned against doing so, especially if they are in positions of responsibility. 

Cad atá oraibh? Ná bí amaideach...   


Customers can find my at recent shows listed.

Recent lamps

 

More recent than this blog, anyway.  

The white wolves always sell out.  As do most of the snow dragons. Gothic Dragons however depend on the crowd.  Lots of complements, but not all find a home, faraor.
