This is gorgeous - wonderful weight, handle and shape fit nicely in the hand, and the color palette is beautiful. My current favorite mug

About

Beauty, Simplicity, and Usefulness

I'm long-time lover of all things old, beautiful, and time-worn. My tastes are constantly evolving and my shop goes right along with me. I'm currently interested in fiber art, 70s design books, studio pottery, beat-up flat woven antique rugs, japanese stoneware, vessels and hangers for houseplants, coiled baskets, and amateur oil paintings.

I've been making ceramics since late 2015, after years of collecting vintage studio pottery. My current body of work focuses and color and pattern, paired with earthy stoneware and imperfect, hand-built forms.

    I live in Massachusetts with my husband and our sweet cat, Olive. I'm happiest at home, cozied up with a good book and a glass of something nice.

Thanks for visiting!

Our vintage items have lived a life before arriving here, so please know that signs of use, age, and wear are to be expected. I do my very best to accurately describe the condition of each item; please contact me if you have any additional questions before purchasing, as all sales are final.

Handmade ceramics are all made by my own two hands. My work is made by hand-building with clay slabs, a wonderfully tactile method with results that are intentionally imperfect. Each pieces has signs of its handmade origin, and no two pieces are exactly alike.

All my ceramics and food, dishwasher, and microwave safe, though hand washing is recommended.
