A Little for Ourselves

After two years of marriage to a potter, I finally have placed an order for my own special set of dinnerware! I'm very excited about our project. There is something so organic and satisfying about making a thing with your own hands and using it daily. This is the beautiful thing about clay. It's art to be sure, but it brings beauty to the daily life. It glorifies in it's own silent steady way that there is something to be appreciated in the simplest activity.

Here are some pictures of the process!
This is the studio that we are lucky enough to have access to. It works perfect for us right now.Throwing the spout for a custom ordered tea pot.

These will be the cups for the tea pot.
