Welcome to Cottage Garden Creations

Thanks for visiting my website; I hope you enjoy my artwork as much as I enjoy creating it. I often wonder where these vessels will live once they leave my studio.

On any given day, you might find me searching stores and resale shops for unique glass bottles, jars, vases and jugs to craft into one-of-a-kind creations. I carefully prepare the bottles and then hand-sculpt the clay pieces to attach individually to each vessel, giving them texture and personality. After the clay has dried, I paint the bottles to bring them to life. I have hand-sculpted apples, sunflowers, grapes, cottages, lighthouses, flowers, butterflies—and I’m also designing some dogs and cats for future projects.

Folks love my wine bottle cottages for wedding, anniversary and housewarming gifts. I can personalize the cottages when requested with names, dates or addresses on the front door. With a string of lights inside the cottages, they take on a cozy glow.

You may have noticed that I refer to my bottles as vessels. That’s because as the light shines through my painted vessels, I pray the light of God shines through me onto you.

“For You cause my lamp to be lighted and to shine; the Lord my God illumines my darkness,” Psalm 18:28.
