roseville2Roseville Pottery

1890-1954

I’ve been on the hunt for damaged Roseville Pottery for over ten years, but collectors covet even broken pieces of Roseville. This year I uncovered a particularly mangled cornucopia vase that I managed to bring into the studio and transform into jewelry.

More about Roseville: Ohio’s Roseville Pottery ranks among the most-prized American art pottery. Early on Roseville produced utilitarian items such as flower pots and household pieces, but in 1900 they began a line of fine art pottery that competed with Rookwood, Owens, and Weller potteries. Roseville has enjoyed two revivals with collectors. First, in the 1970s with baby boomers and then again in the late 1990s with the popularity of the Arts and Crafts Style.

My largest and last show of the year opens on Thursday in Chicago; and this year, I decided to preview some of the new pieces to you BEFORE the event starts.

I want to let you know a few of my favorites and what makes them special. If you see something you like, you can even purchase it… without having to make a trip to Chicago 😉 Just realize that on Wednesday evening, I’ll be taking these pieces out of the online store and moving them to the One of a Kind Show and Sale… so if you want one, you’ll have to act.

Katharine Hepburn Plate Shard NecklaceVictorian Majolica Ware 1849-1900

I first worked with Majolica Ware several years ago when I acquired a piece that once belonged the Katharine Hepburn (sorry, no pieces from that plate remain, but there’s a photo on the right). I recently recovered a few broken Majolica plates… one in particular has a gorgeous deep red and caramel glaze that I haven’t seen before.

More about Majolica Ware: Known for its brilliantly colored glazes and classical and naturalistic designs, this vibrant earthenware was introduced by English china maker Mintons in mid-1800s and featured at the Great Exhibition of 1851, also known as the Crystal Palace Exhibition. This style of pottery was based on Mediterranean Majolica pottery developed during the Renaissance Period by Moorish potters from the Spanish island of Majorca.

(7th floor #1110)

Just as I was finishing up my new collection of jewelry and ready to escape the icy Upper Peninsula of Michigan for winter shows in California and Arizona, I had a bit of a setback.

My partner Corey (who you might have met at an art shows) was hospitalized for a week. He’s recovering at home now, but his recovery has forced us to adjust our travel and show schedule. As a result, I won’t be attending the La Encantada Arts Festival in Tucson this weekend.

Since I’ll be absent from the show, I decided to run a little Get Well Soon Sale in my online store. You will get 20% OFF everything through Sunday, January 24th.

My fingers are crossed that we won’t miss any of the other shows we have planned. If you’re in Arizona or California, take a look at the art show line up.

Today, my final show of the season begins, the One of a Kind Show in Chicago. This year, I decided it was time to bring out a very special piece of shard jewelry… a piece that hasn’t been seen in public for over five years…

The Katharine Hepburn necklace… a stunning piece of jewelry made from bits of a broken plate that belonged to the legendary actress.

How’d I get the broken plate? Well back in 2004, Hepburn’s estate went up for auction at Sothebys New York. Among the memorabilia and person items, there was a set of majolica ware dishes… and among that set of dishes, a damaged plate.
How could I resist, I bought the broken plate. It took me over a year to figure out what I wanted to create. The end result… well, I think it turned out quite stunning…

I must thank my friend CJ Iglinski for her fine beadwork on the necklace.

You can view the piece and my full collection of jewelry at the One of a Kind Show in Chicago through Sunday, or visit my online collection.


 

If you’re around Chicago, stop by the One of a Kind Show. I’d love to show you the Katharine Hepburn necklace. Booth #1110.

Every year I take some of my favorite bits of broken dishes and turn them into ornaments for my Christmas tree. I’ve gathered such an extensive collection that this year the weight of all those ornaments actually tipped over the tree… it was quite a scene. Fortunately, none of my shard ornaments were damaged, but I wish I could say the same for the old bell ornaments from childhood 🙁

I’m taking this as a sign that it’s time for me to give the tree a little break and start sharing some of these ornaments with you. Sixteen ornaments from my personal collection have been added to my online store. These are truly one-of-a-kind pieces that I hand picked for hanging on the tree. You can get a peek at the pieces below.

I had half this piece finished for a while… E.T.’s head from an old mug, but I never knew what I’d do with the hands. This week I finally figured it out, and I’m thrilled with the results. I’ve decided I should wear this one at a few shows.

If you’re at an upcoming show in the near future, stop by and say HI to the little fella.
