The term 'Handmade' can mean many things; in this case it means quite literally handmade from beginning to end?
EJ spends countless hours on each piece creating a true one of a kind product. Each tile, mug, bowl, platter etc. starts as a big hunk of clay. Rememer that clay you played with in high school? That's where EJ fell in love with this medium. You'd probably be pretty good too, if you loved it as much as her.
EJ has many ready made products that stock the shelves of several stores and fills her studio most of the time.
Many of EJ's pottery items are avaialbe right now. However, her stock shifts so quickly that it is necessary to contact her at 208-xxx-xxxx or XXX@email.com
If you love one of her products and you want to tweek it to suit your taste. Let her know and most of the time she can accomidate your request.
Microwaves do crazy things but tableware should be just fine.
The tableware should be just fine in your microwave and dishwasher, however you'll extend the life of your EJ Art if you choose to handwash it.
Like many artists, the current project is typically the most fun because it is new.
EJ has worked on so many cool projects and each one has an element of excitement that differs from the others. If she had to pick one though it would be the seascape on the side of the building in California. Read more about that monster project here.
Sometimes projects are so large that it would send most of us into a tailspin trying to find a place to begin?
When a project of such grand scale comes along EJ knows right where to begin. First she has to research the subject matter. Then create the design and finally apply that to the tiles. You can read every detail on the large scale custom mural here.
EJ has produced artwork of all sizes. She has plastered the side of a building with her art. No really, go look.
You'll see EJ's art in every size you can imagine. She has created pieces that fit nicely in your kitchen cabinet and others that you will need to create a whole new wing in your home. Of course, you could build a sky scraper and she would no doubt rize to the occaision.
What does it take to do an outdoor mural?
Coordination is a huge part of any large scale project. Never fear with EJ, she has the dicipline of a world class athlete. You know what that means, more than you and I. As in, mind over matter and body. Here is an overview of what it took to do a 120'X18' tile mural to be installed on an exterior wall.
Absoutely - EJ can create custom work when you don't even know what you want?
Many of EJ's clients only have a vague idea of what they want. They know they like her work and they know they want to incorporate it into their lives in some unique way. This is where the artist comes in, EJ is highly skilled at finding something you are passionate about and turning that into something tangable that reminds you of those emotions.
What else would you like to know?
Because it is impossible to answer every question in advance, if you have lots of questions then it's probably best just to give EJ a call.
