In my home, mornings begin with a cabinet full of memories. Each mug I have to choose from has it’s own story. I’m reminded of a mentor, a friend, a place, or an artist I dream of one day meeting. I love watching our guests open that same cabinet as each cup is carefully studied. It’s not long before a friend finds the one that speaks to them. I make pottery because I think the objects we use on a daily basis are as important as what they hold.

I think that a meal with friends that you’ve spent hours preparing calls for dinnerware crafted with the same care. I think flowers picked fresh from your garden look better in a vase you’ve picked as well. I think you deserve to know the maker of the objects you use every day.
