Bought as a gift, it was loved by the recipient. Shipped reasonably quickly, though no updated information on shipping provided. It did arrive within about 10 days of placing order. All items were carefully packed and shipped.

GORGEOUS! Hands down, one of my favorite pottery pieces. I would love big coffee mugs that look just like it. HINT, HINT...

About

In a Tradition

As a youth I spent my early years charging across the dusty floor boards of my grandfather's pottery studio. For the gang of us, my cousins, my sister, and myself, the "pot shop" was a den for mischief and occasional skirmishes involving projectile nuggets of soft clay. Slathering ourselves, and each other, with those cold wet gobs was the extent of our interests in ceramics at that time. My grandfather, Jack O'leary, had been a founding member of the New Hampshire Crafts Guild and the thriving New England craft community in the 1950's and 60's. It was a family business, and while our uncles tolerated our shenanigans (and tried to enlist us in pugging clay)we eventually drifted away, rejecting the life of mud and dust. It wasn't until years later that I discovered the magic of this craft and attempted to embrace my lineage. In these times of shifting sensibilities and economic anxieties, I find a rootedness, a heartiness and dependibility, in this earthly endeavor. Feeling the wet clay rise in my hands as the wheel spins relaxes me,relieves me of my own anxieties. When I am creating pots in my studio, I strive to bring spontaneity and life to the process of working with clay.
