Wow, what to say here. We have lived
most of our lives just working to raise our kids, and make a decent living. I
(Rick) have had a woodworking shop for the better part of 30 years but it was
mostly used to make things for our own use.
Now we are
starting to make things, mostly things from discarded, re-purposed, or reclaimed
materials. As new items are created, they will be posted on this website, and
some will be made available for purchase
into Photography about 8 years ago. It became an obsession. We saw the world in a whole new way while
looking through the viewfinder of our cameras. We have accumulated quite a
large collection of Photos, and have kept them pretty much to ourselves. Due to
lots of prompting from family and friends, we are making these available to
share with the world.
Our most recent
creative outlet is Pottery, and ceramics in general.
In June 2012 Vicki and I were watching a TV show about
making pottery. We talked about maybe taking some classes. The class taking
Still intrigued by actually taking Clay from the
ground and making utilitarian items, and even a pieces of art, We got on E- Bay
and found a used homemade kick-wheel. We played around with throwing pots with
this contraption and soon realized we could actually make functional pieces.
With these green clay pots accumulating, it was back on
the Internet to find a used kiln to fire our pieces. It snowballed from there,
and we now have 2 electric wheels, but are currently using the same used kiln
we bought originally.
We both still have full time jobs, but our lives
have been so enriched with these creative outlets, that stress in our lives has
become nearly non existent!
