Her interview is below so read through and get to know her a little, then stop by the shop and check her out!
ALBH: How did you get into making incense burners? We don’t see a lot of that other than from certain suppliers.
CD: I began pottery 4 years ago through classes held at the Brambleton Center. It wasn’t hard to learn – just something that required a lot of practice.
ALBH: Your pieces are all so different – I’m sure no two are ever the same?
CD: Yes! And custom orders are my favorite – it keeps the work all unique.
ALBH: What’s your favorite and least favorite part of your work?
CD: Getting messy with the earth’s clay but then having to clean it up.
ALBH: What does the word “hippie” mean to you?
CD: Being spontaneous, loving & caring; a relaxed frame of mind.
ALBH: Finally, why is your art such a great fit for our customers?
CD: Lots of folks enjoy incense – my burners make an excellent addition to them!
