Craftivism and More Compassion Pottery

I am integrating my racial justice activism with my craft (pottery) now = craftivism.

Big Heart for Equality #52 - $30-40
Heart Cup #53 - $15-20
Compassion Border #54 - $25-35

I have learned that folks in marginalized groups often don't feel seen (in our white supremacy culture). And they get judged for what overs in their racial group do/have done. 

I See You #55 - $40-50



inside of I See You bowl (below)
matching mug #56 - $25-35




A Healthy Community
fosters friendships, all are respected, equality is universal

This is a fundraiser, so you can decide how generous you will be in the price ranges I posted. All proceeds will be donated to mutual aid groups in the Boston area, and organizations helping folks who are struggling with food insecurity and more, due to the pandemic.

I can take payment with Venmo (SJoyD), PayPal (paypal.me/dagworks, pick "friends and family" not "service" please!), cash or check.

(I would prefer to not have to mail these, so let's talk about options, especially if you know me. You could pick up from my studio in Ashland, MA, if that is convenient for you. I could drop off/deliver if I will be seeing you.)

Shipping and handling will be an additional $10+ depending.

Contact Deb with interest, orders, and questions: 508-686-6046.

Reminder Stones

These are great for gifting or keeping to remind yourself/others of someone or something you care about. You can write a message on the back, if you want. Reminder Stones are smooth and can be carried in a pocket or set in a convenient spot. A very popular item. 

All proceeds go to folks who are food insecure or struggling due to the pandemic. $3-5 each; you chose how much you want to contribute. 

Also see the heart reminder stones on the Compassion Pottery posting.





thank you




for Activism, Equality and Equity





Om (for centering, mindfulness, meditation...self-care)




miscellaneous letters, designs, spirals

Studio Together Pottery Process Video

The Ashland Dragonfly Festival is going virtual this year. I was asked if I was willing to have a video made of me working in my studio for this virtual event. With hubby Phil's great assistance, we made this video and included some students who had class during the time we did the video shooting (Olga, Eri, Elaine and Mia).


This is the final product after many hours of cutting and editing (this link). The video is less than 7 minutes. 

I show throwing, trimming, carving, and some finished work of mine and the students in the video. I also explain about my Compassion Pottery fundraising. 

Enjoy!
