"All of them are functional," she said of her pieces, ticking off uses that range from coffee mugs to casserole dishes to urns that hold cremation remains.
That last one has actually become an interesting little niche business.
"People are reluctant to ask me to do that, but it's really an honor," Selbe said.
She has been influenced by Asian and Southwest designs, although frequent hikes through Kanawha State Forest also have netted bits of wood that she has used to dress up handles.
Selbe produces lots of pieces in natural tones, but she's not opposed to color and even produced a series in bright orange and yellow this past year.
She was invited to join the artists of Gallery Eleven on Quarrier Street and is a juried artist at Tamarack in Beckley. The Greenbrier also carries a limited number of her pieces in one of the resort gift shops. She also sells pottery at two summer festivals.
And she's still learning — Selbe takes regular classes to help her hone her craft.
"I just love it," she said.
