Biography

One-of-a-kind Individually Glazed Pottery

I am a ceramic artist finally doing what I love, making Magic: On the first floor of a townhouse in South Florida, on a golf course you will find the messy studio of a retired women finally doing the one thing she has always loved.

Day and night you will find her throwing at the wheel, hand building on the sturdy hand built table, wedging clay at her wedging board, mixing her own food safe glazes, spraying glazes out on her patio, and firing in the kiln in her garage.

That women would be me, Pat Parker, and I share my space with Moe, the fat studio cat, Misty the underfoot Shih Tzu dog, and last but not least, Nelson, my dear hubby of 35 years.

I am very lucky to have such wonderful helpers, Moe keeps me on my toes, and off of his, Misty makes sure I get out for my walks, and my dear husband Nelson, has all my clay buddies jealous, because he wedges my clay for me and helps me glaze.

I try to be as green as I can in my Etsy shop, by recycling all my clay and making my own food safe glazes. I also make a lot of my own tools and hand carve my stamps. I also recycle my shipping materials as much as possible.
