ARTIST STATEMENT

DeeDee & Shark, is a whimsical art company that makes everyday more fun and beautiful. The name DeeDee & Shark comes from my son’s two favorite stuffed animals, a huge bear named DeeDee and a stuffed shark. I wanted to create a business that didn’t pin me to a specific medium or concept; that embodied my eclectic interests and personality.

Currently I make ceramic pieces, sometimes small sculptural pieces, often functional pieces that I make on the wheel and then decorate the surface with original designs using under glaze and glaze. I love animals, botanical drawings, mythical creatures, zombies, bones, and will gladly work on custom pieces that cater to individuals. It’s all about creating a unique object filled with humanity, imperfect yet beautiful to enhance your everyday with warmth and fun.
