What do you keep around the house for inspiration? "Above my bed right now is a good sampling of stuff worth holding on to: a porcelain bunny from an old studio mate, a box camera, a nightlight of Mary mother of Jesus, an old Russian painted egg, a plastic jewelry box from my grandmother, a beautiful green glass bottle and a little leprechaun figurine a friend picked up for me at Dead Horse Bay after Hurricane Sandy, a big ceramic hand I made, a children's cube toy, a fishing weight I found at Fort Tilden, a tiny ceramic creamer from an old hotel that I got in Puerto Rico, and a seal one of my old pottery students made for me."
