When Mom's Away

Tower of animals beginning with a dog on it's back, cat on dogs stomach, rabbit, turtle and frog

This totem pole is pure playful joy at its very best. These rascals are up to no good while their mom is away. They remind us of how much fun it is to be a kid and feel like you're getting away with something! I want to jump onto the pile and play too.

Fishing Pole

Fishing  Pole was made during a time when I had a lot of mental hoops to jump  through. Not realizing it while I was making the totem pole  I thought I was  just making a totem about fish swimming . I wanted to use the hoops to  create the feeling of movement for the fish, like they were suspended in  the water. It was not until the piece was almost all built that I  looked at it and saw the hoop jumping that my life had been doing  represented in the piece. I am always amazed when this happens even  though so much of my work has an autobiographical aspect to it. I never  seem to see it coming!

Purple, red and green totem pole with raccoon peeking out from a leafy globe in the middle

This  sweet little bandit is peeking through the bushes asking "Who's There?". I have very fond memories of feeding raccoons over the top of  the dutch door at our cabin when I was a little girl. This little guy  always makes me smile remembering those happy childhood days.

Woodpecker Totem

Woodpecker Totem

wood beads alternating with checkered beads and a woodpecker on the top

My  Woodpecker Pole captures a very sweet  moment between a mother and her  babies. I love the idea of a family choosing to nest in one of my  sculptures.
By  a special coincidence, my only experience with seeing a piiated woodpecker in person came while I was making this totem pole. I had been looking at woodpecker images trying to decide what I wanted the woodpecker on the top to look like and I looked up to see that outside my window was an unbelievably large, magnificent woodpecker clinging to the side of a redwood tree. It stayed long enough for me to take some photos and enjoy its company. Then off it went and I haven't seen one since. The artist in me felt like it was a special muse sent at just the right moment.

The frogs on this totem are glazed with my special Philo Green Glaze that I make from clay hand dug on my land in Philo. It has an interesting mottled surface pattern that comes from the natural minerals that make up the raw clay. It was such a happy surprise to find this local clay made such beautiful frog ‘skin’. 

Top Dog

Inspired by my studio companion and muse, Charlotte, this playful pole is composed of dogs and cats along with their playmates. Dogs and cats bring such joy to our lives - my Charlotte keeps me laughing or saying 'aaaw' all day long. This totem showcases some of the aweet and funny things she does.


It stands about 5 feet tall. Each part of the pole is a little vignette of animal friends.
