Gifts for Holidays

Beat the Supply Chain with American Made

This year, holiday gift shopping has become difficult – for imported goods. The news is full of images of taker ships stuck off the coast, waiting to be unloaded. It kind of feels like the supply chain is trying to be the Grinch that stole Christmas. BUT . . . one-of-a-kind gifts that are made right here in the USA are available and ready to make gift recipients swoon! From statement jewelry to unique home decor, my online shop has small gift items that are ready to ship. These items can’t be found anywhere else – I make and sell them directly to you. Free shipping within the continental US is included with every purchase. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Blush Bowl

A client loved the original of this bowl, which is finished in a silver-toned metallic. Her home interior featured lush golden tones, so she asked if the metallic could be changed to coordinate with her interior. Of course! This commissioned blush bowl is the lovely result. 11″ diameter.

Orchard Vessel

This textural vessel is organic yet elegantly versatile with its Mediterranean green, bits of blue, and rose gold finish. The piece is created from reclaimed glass and finished in pigment and metallic foil. Each piece undergoes an extensive multi-step process, taking approximately two weeks to create.

Swirls of Cobalt Transport to Another World

When I was a kid, I loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The drama was pretty good, but my favorite thing was the Wardrobe. The whole idea of stepping through a secret door to another world was intriguing and delightful. And I’ll admit, the idea intrigues me to this day. I still check closets for secret doors. (Sorry to report, none yet.) That’s why I’m so interested in creating portals to the beyond, like this one: Swirls of cobalt and teal promise the adventure of another place. Another time. The metallic silver throws reflections of yourself, just on the other side, looking back. It’s like you can see the shape of yourself in another dimension waiving, “C’mon over, it’s fantastic here.” This piece is 22″ in diameter. It’s permanently framed in a coordinating silver-toned frame. Available via ArtfulHome.

Syrah Vessel

This textural vessel is organic yet elegantly versatile with its rich coloration and metallic finish. The piece is created from reclaimed glass and finished in opaque oxblood burgundy and smoky black charcoal. This is a limited production design that measures 11″ in diameter and 3″ tall.

Bodega Bowl

The Bodega Bay of California is a beautiful and dynamic place. The fog rolls in off the ocean fast. While I was visiting recently, I witnessed a river of fog sweep in off the ocean and up a cliff. The river was about 200 yards away, yet I continued to bask in the sun. It was beautiful and startling at the same. Of course, I knew at that moment the scene would serve as an inspiration for this vessel. Bodega Bowl measures 15″ in diameter. It’s created with reclaimed glass, pigments and a silver toned metallic foil.

Oblong Vessel in Berries and Gold

Representing abundance, this textural piece is finished in colors of berries and gold. This oblong vessel sits upon a reclaimed wood stand that elevates it literally and figuratively. Measuring 16″ wide, by 6″ deep by 7″ tall, this vessel makes an impact where ever it is displayed.

Dreamscape 136, Calming Blue

This captivating Dreamscape sculpture is reminiscent of a tropical ocean dive. Bits of calypso blue give way to vibrant purple, all finished off with silver metallic foil. Created with reclaimed glass, pigments and metallic foil. The glass is presented in a raw steel stand.
