It's raining today, and all I want is a nice cup of tea. Drinking tea is such a comforting ritual that I enjoy every day in the afternoon, and it's even more special when I drink from a handmade vessel. If I could afford it, I'd replace every piece of dishware I own with lovely handmade pottery. In the past year I've been cultivating quite an obsession. My studiomate has a collection of tiny plates that she made, and I love them dearly. I really want to take a pottery class! When I was a kid, my mom signed me up for all sorts of pottery classes at the local college, and I even got to use a pottery wheel. (Speaking of which, have you seen this episode of Community? Hilarious.) Yeah, my mom is awesome. Anyways, I really want to get back into it. But in the meantime I'll scour the internet for pieces I can buy. Aren't these beautiful? They're some of my favorites.
