Welcome Wednesday!

This week Jaritas Creations joins the Homefront Team.  Jarita makes some gorgeous handcrafted pottery (personally a craft that I am in awe of). 
Jarita's husband has been in the Army since 1985, and they married in 1987.  Her husband has served in Iraq, and they have been at several duty stations.
Jarita started doing pottery after taking classes with MWR (morale, wefare, recreation) nearly 20yrs ago.  After dealing with some health issues, she restarted in pottery back in 1998, when she self taught herself to use handbuilding technique, as disability makes wheel throwing difficult. She has now added slab-building and Cone 6 electric firing to her repetoire, and continues to study, attend some workshops, and experiment to expand her knowledge and skills.
You can learn more about her, from her shop profile and her blog:

Here are some of her items listed in shop:

Bluesy Star Ornament
Mini Birdhouse
Wood Tone Bottle

Raku Planter
