Sad story from a customer whose mug decided to break… gravity and all… and no longer holds her morning coffee. But it does make a nice home for her cactus! Innovative way to not “let go” of her favorite mug!!! Now we just need to get her one that will still hold her coffee!!!

See the crack running from top to bottom?!!! Look close… there’s a couple!

Categories: bowls, stamped

As we’re zooming towards the holidays, I have a few last minute projects going on! Like a friend’s request for some matching bowls for her parents’ Christmas gift. Not sure if they’ll get done in time… but I’m trying my best. You know I love a good challenge!!… and work best with a deadline!!!

Still throwing. Still stamping.
Another vase and that one stamp that did all of the tough work!

And a detail of the freshly stamped surface… still a bit wet, and waiting for a little clean-up!
