I'd take a porcelain volleyball with the hopes I could trade it for Chris' water filter... Posted Image.

I would take the very first piece I ever made - a round ball rattle. It was my first attempt at ceramics and we started with pinching. The ball turned out so smooth and almost completely round. It is the perfect size to fit in my hand and makes a great sound when shaken.


Side note - It serves as a stress reliever so it would come in handy on a deserted island where I would be stressed out about not being able to work in my studio :-).

If I were deserted on a island, I first thought I would bring something to catch rain water. However, as I looked around my home I found a little piece of clay work done by my daughter Julie, when she was 3 years old. It was a little tiny candle holder. This is what I would bring with me!

I would take my stoneware mask Spirit of Chochise", because it would provide me with an image that represents transformation, and survival against all odds. Good company too. LOL

Color me boring ...
But I'm taking a Potters for Peace water filter so I live long enough to search for a volleyball to be my friend!

I would bring my very favorite coffee mug by Jeff Brown. It would remind me that artists can find beautiful optimism in any situation by creating. The sgraffito also gives great hand massages after trying to open stubborn coconuts and after ripping off stalks for a hut. Jeff Brown's Website - Pottery for all of your trips to sea


I guess it's not very practical, but I would bring my favorite mug too. Made by Birch Frew, it is my morning companion as I start work in my studio. It would be a comfort and help to remind of life before (and beyond the island).

The Ugly Pot. I made it in high school, I'm 42, and it's sitting in my mother's living room. Upon being stranded, I would throw the ugly thing into the sea. I would then be rescued shortly after, as my mother arrived to rescue the childhood treasure I'd one again tried to dispose of.


Oh yes, we all have those- and I think our loved ones keep them to keep us humble ;-}

I would take an Udu. I could tap out messages (drum). I could also carry water in it up to the hole in the side.

It would be the mug I made myself for xmas last year. Ever since my Jeff Brown mug broke, I've been searching for the right size...this isn't as pretty as Jeff's, but it IS the right size!!

I'd take a bowl... it can be a plate with a curve, a mug with some nerve and even a hat, or a home for your cat.
