Quirky Ceramics and Fine Art
Lenny is the name of my studio cat. I make the pots and Lenny breaks them: this way I never run out of shelf space.
Lenny is not for sale. Probably not.
I know my shop name makes me sound like a 50 year old man who smokes cigars, but I am a female who is sometimes told that she looks ten years younger than her real age. (My husband says the nicest things in the dark. When he's drunk.) I am the mother to two small, adorable children that I like to call The Spawn. They provide much of the inspiration for my work, as well as for getting out of the house sometimes. ( Like when I realize no one else in the whole house is capable of changing a roll of toilet paper but me. )
I like to make stuff. Sometimes I like to work with clay and other days I like to draw or paint. I work a busy day job as a designer for a line of ceramics sold worldwide-Etsy is a hobby, or perhaps a midlife crisis. It brings me joy and I hope the things I make bring you the same.
My darling husband helps me with packing and shipping but i do the rest. Kinda like at home. (I'm kidding, Honey.) (PS: the laundry hamper is located to the right of your dresser. Just sayin.)
My ceramics are made from two kinds of clay: earthenware and stoneware. I use a variety of methods to make the items I sell: wheel thrown, handbuilt and upcycled-as well as a variety of decorative techniques: free hand painting, screened design and design transfers. Regardless of the materials or technique, you can be sure that the item you purchase is 100% lead free and safe to place in the dishwasher or microwave. I work with all non toxic, eco friendly materials and try to purchase from local suppliers whenever possible. Everything is made with Mud, Sweat & Tears...mostly sweat.

And yes, it's ok if you call me Lenny, everybody does.
I have two other Etsy shops which may or may not be open-
- vintage and fine art
I am thrilled to have been featured by Etsy on their blog (with much better pictures than I could ever take, btw) here
