I believe that everyday objects have the power to surprise - delight! - the people that use them. We form relationships with that special cup we use for coffee or water every day; it's texture, surfaces become part of the fabric of our day, drawings on the wall and favorite books become part of us. They talk to our hands when we touch them.
I delight in making things that are fun to use. I love oversized ceramic mugs that keep water cold next to the bed at night and also work great filled with juice and booze in the afternoon. Plates that beg to be filled up with delicate snacks gives me paroxysms of joy. Super dope party bowls for special occasions send me over the moon - especially when they're set on fire!
All of my cast mugs are made in extremely limited batches. Once a certain number have been produced, I break the moulds and that shape is gone - forever.
