Very happy repeat customer. This glaze looks a bit like wood accented with the perfect shade of blue.

Very fast shipping. I am a happy repeat customer. These mugs look delicate but they are very sturdy and hold heat well. Very comfortable grip. Huge capacity for the full measure of morning coffee.

About

Becoming a potter

My first encounter with clay happened in 1998 when I took Ceramics in Community College. Up to that moment I had not even considered a teapot let alone a handmade one. Over the next 8 years I continued to take the classes offered sometimes with long breaks in between. In fact it was leaving the class that made me realize how integral ceramics was to my well being. On my third break from class while I was traveling in India, I knew that when I got back I would become a potter. And since 2007 I have been experimenting with my own forms and glazes.
My thrown forms have given me a sense of accomplishment I could not have gotten any other way. As a student I was a one of a kind potter never throwing the same form twice. As a studio potter I really appreciated the challenge of refining and trying to throw a particular form well each time. It was like working on my first album, and each pot was a song I was mastering with each performance. My dream is to be able create everyday objects in ceramic that never age.
