These are perfect water glasses for you or your flowers!
Just big enough for that huge bag of oranges!
Just applied the decoration for this batch of wildflower mugs. Check out the tag to see how much the colors change in the kiln!

I grew up on a very small goat farm in Western New York, where the only place to be was outside. Before my house was built, the topsoil had been bulldozed off and sold, leaving land that was mostly rocks and clay. Our surprisingly fruitful gardening efforts were my first taste of what I would come to love; being up to my elbows (or knees) in clay.
At 18, I left my tiny, isolated town and moved to Brooklyn, NY to attend Pratt Institute, majoring in painting. I worked in the ceramics studio under the incredibly talented Patrick Purcell. Here, I learned, and came to love, glaze chemistry, kiln maintainance, the reclaim process, and of course, throwing.
Since I graduated, I have been running a studio and teaching just North of the city. Here, I have had the time to develope my own style and start to scratch the surface of the infinite possibilities of hand thrown pottery.
Teaching has been an endless source of inspiration. When a student needs an answer for their work it forces me to figure out new processes and solutions which I never would have come to on my own.
