House it Going?

Fresh out of the kiln.




I built my Starry Starry Night house in 2007 to demonstrate a lesson I was teaching to my ceramics classes at the time. I bisque fired it and left it sit for a year or so. I finally glazed and finished it! I wish I had more time to work on my art, I just don't. It also doesn't help that I like to dabble in so many different mediums. To many interesting things to try and little time.

Ceramic house in progress
A new work in progress.....


  1. That is beautiful! My 12 year old daughter and I are gushing over how awesome it is! We both wish we had your talent. My daughter want's to know how much you would charge to make her one ;-)

  2. nice work, the roof reminded me some Vincent Van Gogh paintings :)

  3. What an awesome tribute to VanGogh! I love this piece. Good for you for finishing it! I have pieces of greenware and bisqueware just sitting in the studio; they might never get done...

  4. How marvellous :) you're very talented. I miss making ceramics, haven't had kiln access since college.

    The house would look so pretty with a little light inside for Christmas.

  5. this is beautiful. starry nights is one of my favorite pieces.

  6. I love the detail and the placement of the windows. Nice work!

  7. so, ... where are we going to put the kiln? = ) how about rakhu!

  8. Thanks everyone!! I love when I get the time and itch to be creative and crafty in lots of different ways. Jill of many trades but master of none!

    Kim....Sgt has dibs on that house but tell your lovely daughter I will see what I can do for her. Sometimes kids won't take the houses they build...crazy I know...I will keep my eyes open and see what comes up.
