Tumblrrr I have failed you!

I forgot to mention I’m having an Etsy shop update today, April 2nd, going live at 12 pm central time.

Instagram seems to be my main platform these days, so if you’d like to get the scoop sooner perhaps you should pop over there and follow me at @mudanddeanna ?

All that being said I miss my days of Tumblr scrolling so I need to spend a day here with wine and icecream and enjoy all the feelz of what I’d have to say is still the best social media platform.

clay drinkware by michelleluupottery

  • speckled ceramic blush stripe cup
  • nightfall black ceramic stoneware mugs

i couldn’t decide which of these michelleluupottery pieces to feature … so you get ‘em both!! the speckled clay looks awesome with the colorful glaze stripes in the top cup, and i dig the varied designs of the black-and-white stormy mugs in the bottom photo.

Yes, the bottoms should get some attention too!

I have discovered a way I enjoy creating my mugs in ceramics. I am a person who really loves a good mug, one that’s artsy or different or has a great glaze, all while still being very functional for my coffee and hot tea. The mugs I have been making recently have a rounded belly and pinched feet. I feel like they have a bit of character for your daily caffeine kick!
I have also learned to create them a bit bigger than I want, because the shrinking they do when they’re fired is always more than I expect. Oh, and broken wind chimes make for great texture!

Can we talk for a moment here about Lolo Kokochaka’s work? Unreal. It’s so vibrant and playful, and I’m so envious of how seamlessly she meshes color with shape. It’s something I struggle with a lot in my own work, and it is such an inspiration to see someone work so seemingly effortlessly between the two. She creates really nice, simple forms, enhanced by color scheme. Lolo appears to work predominantly by hand-building out of Copenhagen, Denmark.

At this time, she does not have her own website, but work can be purchased directly through Etsy
