Purchase Siglinda’s Pottery for a Good Cause

Purchase Siglinda’s unique pottery online because ninety percent of the price of your purchase goes to support the cats and kittens at the Goathouse Refuge.

Spaying and neutering are still not exercised enough by the local population, and shelters are ill-equipped to deal with the steady flow of animals coming in. Many shelters kill for space almost on a daily basis, and often do so in inhumane ways. Thankfully, gas chambers are now illegal in the state of North Carolina since 2/14/2015, after 8 years of fighting to shut them down. Those shelters that might offer longer term residency can lack indoor/heated spaces during the winter and, consequently, many of their residents simply freeze to death. It is heart-breaking.

The Goathouse attempts to take in as many cats as possible from some of the worst shelters. Know that your purchase of Siglinda’s pottery helps to end the pain and suffering of animals in public shelters because we do everything we can within our resources to help cats from one of the many local kill shelters in this area.

Mica Sculpture

Mica SculptureUnique and rare describe this beautiful sculpture by Siglinda Scarpa which tells a story all its own…here it is in her own words…”A few years ago somebody wrote an article about my work and said something that made a lot of sense to me. He said that I make something that does not exist but it could, because I have an intimate relationship with creation. Don’t ask me where it comes from, I don’t know. So the sculpture is something that could exist. It took me 8 months to find the mica, finally a collector decided to sell to me a box that he had in his basement…one of the things I love about those sculptures is that the mica sheds little fragments all the time and it makes me feel that it is alive.” This sculpture is priced at $7,000.
