This form is part of my "Fleet" series of boat-like surrealistic forms that appear to be filled with water. To me, these pieces have deep meaning. They are a conundrum of sorts, that provoke thought and philosophical discussion. This series evolved out of my own fear of water, which I have since overcome. I am now infatuated with the turquoise depths of the ocean and what lies beneath its surface. These pieces honor the beauty of water and its significance to humanity.
Each piece is carefully made by hand using slabs of stoneware clay that are assembled and carved or modeled with hand tools in leather-hard clay. The form is hollow with a small hole in the bottom. It is fired to 2300 degrees in a gas-fired kiln with a reducing atmosphere, to create the subtle variation in the glaze surface.
Size: 9.5"L x 3"D x 2.5"H
This piece is not intended for use with food. It is for decorative/sculptural purposes only.

I gladly accept payment via PayPal, money order, or check. On personal checks, my policy is to wait until the check clears before shipping the item to you. Thanks for understanding.
I generally ship the same day I receive payment, and for most items I use Fed Ex Ground, but I will ship the fastest way possible for the amount of money you have paid. I often double box and and always thoroughly pack items I am shipping. Whenever possible, I try to reuse packing materials so please be understanding of multiple types of padding (i.e. bubble wrap, foam, news paper, shredded paper, etc.)
On international orders, I will likely use USPS for international shipping. I try very hard to accurately estimate the shipping costs. However, if I have overestimated significantly, I will refund the difference to you.
As mentioned above, customer satisfaction is very important to me. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please let me know within one week of receiving the item and I will either refund your purchase, replace the item or remake it (this may take some time due to firing schedules).
ON GLAZE COLORS:
While I make every effort to portray the true color of my work through the photography process, every computer monitor has its own color nuances. The glazes themselves are complex surfaces often with many subtle variations. If the color of the piece is extremely important for you, please contact me for further descriptions. If you have access to a local hardware store with paint color samples such as Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore, we can very accurately compare colors though their free in-store samples.
I gladly accept custom orders with a 50% deposit required up front. However, variations in glazes are sometimes unpredictable, so like any handmade product no two are exactly alike.
I will sell wholesale on some items, so please contact me via e-mail if you are interested. I rarely work on consignment.
