Jan, in her “spare” time, is now creating wonderfully unique ceramic totems for your home and garden, sculptures, and other interesting items. The articles on this page describe some of these projects
A ceramic totem consists of several abstract or not-so-abstract objects through which passes an aluminum rod. Each ceramic object is individually sculpted and glazed in colors that complement one another and its surroundings.
In addition to the glazed ceramic objects on the totem, Jan can add items such as native stone and/or crystals
The totem can be placed in your flower garden or as a free-standing decorative object in your home.
Not only are the ceramic totems interesting as free-standing art for your home or garden, Jan is also incorporating the idea into desk or table lamps for your home.
Because the pieces that make up the totem are each custom and unique, lamps can be fabricated to fit well with any decor. The lamps can be assembled in a variety of finishes, from raku to earthy to fun, bright colors.
Lamps can be made in many different sizes, including small desk lamps, standard table lamps, and taller floor lamps. Each ceramic object comprising the lamp is individually made and fired before threading it onto a metal support.
Along with the totems, Jan has also been creating a number of different bowls and abstract pieces to decorate your home or office.
These sculptures are created in different colors and styles. Some customization of pieces is possible. Click on a small image below to view larger photos of these example pieces.
