Need a one-of-a-kind gift for someone on your list? Or, maybe a handmade serving bowl for your holiday table? I made these fellas on commission for a friend, and have one that hasn’t been claimed yet! 10.25 across x 5.5 inches tall. There’s a quarter in the corner for scale 😉 The link to my Etsy shop is in my profile, if you’re interested...

This friend came out of the kiln last week and decided to live at our house! I’m really pleased with how the deep electric blue fades into midnight black. It reminds me of the milky-way filled sky Aaron and I saw over the Utah desert during our last backpacking adventure. I’m gonna enjoy pouring steaming tea from it this winter! Happy #teapottuesday !!

Happy #mugshotmonday ! I made this set of four cups for a Christmas commission. It’s more than a month until they’ll live in their new home, but I thought they might enjoy a little pre-Christmas coming out party!

Maybe it’s a strange thing to love, but I love making lids. There. I said it. *

Did you know that it’s #whiskeywednesday ?! I made this whiskey set a few weeks ago and it’s been happily living at our house ever since, patiently waiting to be broken-in. Last night these little cups held their first libation in celebration of Aaron installing the first of 9 windows we’re replacing this winter! 😳🎉 The bottle holds 750ml. The cups are actually double-shots (oops!). *

My husband makes beautiful things from mud. And then he sells them! Check out his bio for a link. Time listed is central time. They go QUICK so put your fast fingers on.

It’s a pretty great feeling to be making something for someone, and to be thinking about that someone while you’re making it, and then to realize that you really like what you’re making... like, really really like it.... like you like it so much that you think you might want to keep it for yourself... and then to remember how great that other person is and to get even happier thinking about the thing you’re making living in that person’s house. Yep. Good day. #pottery #bcpots #ceramics #pottersofinstagram #madeinnashville

It’s #mugshotmonday !!😁 I think today feels like a red cup day! Some people like big handles that will accommodate all four fingers. Personally, I like smaller, two-finger handles that let you balance the weight of the cup with your “underneath” fingers. So, these modern-esque mugs are two finger fellas with hairpin handles, balanced over a low center of gravity. Coming soon to my Etsy shop!

Today’s #mugshotmonday is brought to you by the color yellow! I’m leaning toward calling this full-bellied, bias-dipped, hairpin handled series “Modern-esque Mugs.” Thoughts?

Happy #MugShotMonday! I've been taking a break from making teapots to tinker with mug forms... and am loving playing with smaller shapes! In this series I'm experimenting with new lines and ideas - handles that echo pointy, mid-century table legs and bright, high-contrast colors. I want these cups to conjure the feeling - even if it's only slight - of sipping your coffee in 1962 while your kiddo watches The Jetsons before school. Maybe I'll call this series "Modern Mugs" or "Mary Tyler Moore Mugs"? Or... maybe you have an idea??

I started tinkering with a new mug form this weekend! These friends are the first drafts. They’re inspired by mid-century design, which played with balancing things around wonky centers of gravity and propped everything up on spindly, angular legs. I’m thinking of glazing them glossy white and giving each a clean burst of color around the handle. Thoughts?

Also... my sketch book sometimes doubles as a place to scribble recipes. If you look closely at the corner of this page of concept drawings, you’ll find scratches of a recipe for our favorite Thai basil pork. Yum!! Happy #mugshotmonday

Want to buy a handmade teapot hot off the shelf? Eight new pots were just listed for my “Support the Artist” sale on ETSY! (Link below and in bio). Full disclosure... this has been my first attempt at teapots and much has been learned along the way. For example, this batch has a tendency to dribble a little. (But, let’s be honest... don’t we all sometimes dribble a little?!) That’s why this is a Support the Artist sale! You can buy a pot and support the artist. Every batch gets better!!

Friends, this is my last #teapottuesday for a while. I’ve had a blast working on this set and am looking forward to getting started on a new batch. In the meantime... if you’d like to buy one one these pots, be watching for my ETSY store to open tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM (CST)! The link will be posted here when it opens!

IMPORTANT! This is a Support the Artist Sale! This has been my first attempt at teapots and much has been learned along the way. This first batch has a tendency to dribble a little. (But, let’s be honest... don’t we all sometimes dribble a little?!). So, these pots are all part of a “Support The Artist” sale. They’re a bit cheaper than usual... but they’re also drippier than usual. So, buy a pot and support the artist. Every batch gets better!!

Today’s #teapottuesday is another departure from this winter’s plump, round pots. This tall, cylindrical fella was inspired by old percolator coffee makers and the blue tin coffee pots that sometimes find themselves warming over a camp stove. He was a fun shape to experiment with. I think my next round of pots may marry the round fullness of this winter’s “big bellied” pots with this taller aesthetic into a series of tall, rounded oval teapots. A fun experiment is currently underway! Stay tuned...
*
In the meantime... my ETSY store opens next Wednesday (4.11). Look for details next Teapot Tuesday!

It’s #teapottuesday !! Today this little guy is excited to take center stage and strut his ceramic stuff. If you’re interested in bringing him home to live with you, he’ll be making an appearance in my new ETSY store, due to open April 10!! Details coming soon! ☕️

My husband does beautiful things with mud. Repost from @bryancurrie

The past few weeks I’ve given myself a respite from teapot-making to play with new shapes. I love bowl forms. Their open, simple, emptiness feels like peace and balance and possibility. This guy (4.5” x 10.5”) was made by mixing several clays to achieve a marbled finish. The outside is glazed clear so the swirling colors and patterns get the attention they deserve. I like this fella. He reminds me of a stormy Jupiter... 😊 ⛈

When this friend came out of the kiln, I wasn’t sure what I thought of him. He’s def a departure from the shiny, full-bellied forms I’ve been throwing. But now that he’s home and we’re getting to know each other, I think this fella is growing on me. Cheers to new friends, eh?! 😊 Happy #teapottuesday !

We’re always learning, friends. Always learning. This fella came out of the kiln with a stuck lid. Sometimes this happens when a snug fit is made snugger as clay shrinks in the kiln. Or, sometimes a small drip of glaze melts in the fire and glues lid to pot. Whatever the case, there are a few tricks that can sometimes unstick a lid - including a freeze/quick-thaw method, gentle taps with a rubber mallet, and fervent prayers to various Nordic gods. After several freezes/thaws, sacred dances, and (not so) gentle taps, this lid decided to crack and break. You can’t see it in this pic... but trust me, it happened. It wasn’t what I would’ve chosen... but alas. A lid’s gonna do what a lid’s gonna do. You’ll always be whole in my memory, little pot! Happy #teapottuesday ! *

How ‘bout a splash of red on this #teapottuesday ?! Admittedly, I tend to gravitate toward darker, moodier colors - earthy, metallic browns and liquid blues. But red. Sometimes red. Right?! 🔥 *

Generally speaking, I don’t think people should play favorites, give preferential treatment, etc. Even so... this little blue guy is one of my favorites so far. I’m seriously considering asking him if he’d like to come live with me at my house. Apparently my hypocrisy knows no bounds 🤔😉 happy #teapottuesday everyone!

I start every morning with a cup (or two... or three...) of hot tea, so working on teapots has been a super fun (and wildly practical) winter project☕️. Friends, it’s a slow drip, french press, cold brewed, *coffee* caffeinated world out there. But, if you’re ready to try something new and steep a cup of tea, I highly recommend any of the fine leaves from @highgardentea 😊 Happy #teapottuesday ! *
*

Also... I’m still polishing the floors of my ETSY shop. Doors will open soon. Stay tuned! #bcpots *

It’s #teapottuesday ! This fat fella came out of the kiln a few days ago and has been waiting patiently to make his debut today. It’s been fun to watch our teapot shelf fill up over the past few weeks! With luck, a few more will emerge from the fire tonight! 🔥
