Clay House Number

Generally when I teach a class it is all about the students, and any demonstrations of technique are merely sample pieces.

By adding time after class I was able to construct items for my home.

This leaf plaque has my house number deeply engraved.   How funny that a slight change to a single digit matches our Tennessee apartment number!

I am very eager to glaze a large hand-built flower-pot because my coleus plant has sprawled into a candelabrum shape and await its new pot.

About Carol

A professional calligrapher for 30 years, I have hand written calligraphy in every size from business card to banners, including a full size reproduction of the U.S. Constitution. I specialize in Copperplate and elegant calligraphy for celebrations and parties. I stumbled into this art when my professor at Washington University told me "You could make money lettering." This was quite a surprise, as I had not seen any specific use of my talents beyond teaching children. As a result of designing my wedding stationery clients magically appeared. Balancing a family of four children and two big dogs with Bruce, my artistic time and available energy have varied considerably thru the years. Now I am happy to report that calligraphy is at the top of my activity list.
