A little snapshot of my desktop... including my treasure from the Royal Oak Clay and Glass show, a beautiful porcelain mug I bought! The artist is Stacey Esslinger. We, the judges, chose her as the Best Functional Clay artist of the show. I loved her work as soon as I saw it...it is young, and fresh, and very well made. It is always exciting to see new ideas and energy presented in old traditional forms like pottery. And it has made this morning's coffee a pure pleasure!
