This serving plate is gorgeous. It is even more beautiful in person. It arrived quickly and was cleverly wrapped it layers of bubble tape, cardboard, and packing peanuts to keep it safe on its journey through the mail. I gave this as plate as a gift, and now I want all of the pieces myself! Who doesn't need some artful octopus platters in their lives?

Incredibly beautiful mugs. They are a perfect and substantial size for warm cups of coffee or tea. Most importantly, though, this seller is awesome to work with! I gave these as a shower gift and Jessica helped them arrive safely and on time. She was also very patient with all the questions that I had, and she responded quickly. I will certainly order from her again!
Nature inspired pottery hand painted and illustrated in bright, happy colors and crisp, clean lines.
Exciting things are happening! Jessica's work has been chosen for a feature wall on a major cruise line! (we cant tell you which one just yet!) The perfect setting for her nautical inspired pottery. Due to set sail in a few months!
Jessica was a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards!

At 17 years old Jessica Howard was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Terrified she was thrown into a whirlwind of tests and toxins. It all culminated into a seven-hour surgery that left her unable to speak or walk for days.
She still recalls in vivid detail the struggle to regain her art, to learn to draw again. “It was like drawing backwards. I needed to find my lines again”, she explains. “To rediscover my strength in my lines. Each line needed to be re-imagined, made whole again.”
Today, years later, she is whole. Married, with two healthy boys she is now cancer free and the lines on her pieces are both bold and clear. Each one a reflection of the treasures she hunted for as a child on the bucolic North Shore of Long Island in those years before the storm, life affirming memories of her strength. The tree limbs, the blades of grass, the lonesomeness of dead ocean life, even the breath of the waves and grains of sand.
