Dinnerware for Children

My dinnerware was originally created at the ceramic residency in Denmark, called Guldagergaard Ceramic Research Center. The nesting pitchers with triangular shaped pitcher spouts led me to use the triangle as a dinner plate shape. Other bowl shapes emerged that nest into the triangle plate.

    Dinnerware for Children called:
    "Ba Ba Blue Sheep", won 2nd place award at the Dinnerware Museum, Ann Arbor, MI show called "The Art of High Chair Fine Dining". The set is now part of the Dinnerware Museum's permanent collection of children's dinnerware. The set is based on a triangle, with nesting pitchers, plates, bowls, and cup. I often display it using LEGO bricks.

  • Triangle Test Tiles

    My porcelain test tiles to try out my glazes, and my illustrations applied as in-glazes. I glaze the piece first and then re-fire with decals of my illustrations on top. The glaze melts again and the image moves under the glaze and is dinnerware safe.

  • Stephanie at Medalta residency

    Here I am at the wonderful Medalta Ceramic Arts Residency in Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada, Sept. 2014. I'm working at a lathe spinning a shape from a block of plaster. Then a positive mold was made for slip casting more dinnerware shapes.

  • Blue Bird Dinnerware

    Made at Medalta Ceramic Residency, Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada. Experimenting with my illustrations from a children's book made into decals and fired on to make them dinnerware safe.

  • Mama Bluebird Feeding Babies

    My copyrighted work for a book I illustrated by Millicent Selsam called "All About Eggs". The book is now out of print, but my illustrations are getting a new life on dinnerware for children. I saw this happen on my front porch, in a potted hanging planter, this summer, with a family of Robins!

  • Red Sheep Dinnerware

    I'm playing with the idea of Red Sheep to delight children. I often display them with LEGOs for fun.

    The dinnerware sets, based on a triangle were inspired by the shape of the spouts on these nesting pitchers. The dishes are available with plates, cups, and bowls as well.
