This cold snowy / rainy morning calls for big cups of coffee in your pajamas at home! All of these marbled pieces are 14 ounces and bigger for those who enjoy lots of coffee and tea. . . .. ... . . . #ceramics#clay
Good morning! I was up bright and early to the studio today because I forgot to cover these last night before I left. Thankfully they were the perfect leather hard. I trimmed them and added handles and they’ll go into the bisque tomorrow morning! . . .. ... . . . #ceramics#clay
It’s Friday! New work came out of the kiln today and I was so excited to show you that I had to run next door and photograph it! You asked for big coffee & tea mugs, and here they are just in time for the #weekend! ☕️ . . .. ... . . . #ceramics
Every piece starts as a lump of clay. Ceramics is such a vast craft, there is no way a person can master all aspects of it in a lifetime. I feel like I’m just now scratching the surface of my craft and aesthetic. This ball of clay will be holding your morning coffee in just a few weeks. ☕️ . . .. ... . . . #ceramics#clay
This cup is one of the more versatile vessels in this last batch. It’s wide and deep, great for tea and coffee if you like to hold it from the bottom. Also great for snacks like yogurt, almonds, or a small salad. Where would this vessel fit into your day? Let me know! ⬇️ . . .. ... . . . #ceramics#clay
If you have followed my page, you’ll know I go to @the_mixtape_club all the time. They’re right next to the studio, let me take lots of photos of my work, and the atmosphere is unbeatable. Whether you love coffee, records, or both, you must stop in! (I threw this cup in college, it’s made of porcelain I made from scratch and then fired in a wood kiln. Haven’t been able to part with this piece in all my travels) . . . . . . #ceramics#clay ...

Wedging is the process in which air bubbles are eliminated from clay. Not only is it important from a materials perspective, but wedging is the time I take to center myself, become focused on the material, and get my body ready for a throwing session. Wedging is one of my favorite steps of the #process. . . .. ... . . . #ceramics

I love drinking coffee from local coffee shops. @brooklynkettle is the perfect stop for your Wednesday boost! I got a drip coffee with a little half and half in this orange tumblr which fits perfectly in my hand. With a cute lil cafe, friendly staff, and outdoor seating, Brooklyn Kettle is a must try in Bed-Stuy. . .. ... .... ... .. . . #ceramics#clay
It’s #mugshotmonday! You asked for bigger mugs, and I made bigger mugs! If you follow my story you’ll know I had a batch of work come out of the kiln yesterday. Two pieces sold before they were cooled off & I couldn’t be more excited to share the rest with you! . .. ... .. . . #ceramics
This small dish is perfect for your bedside table, dresser, kitchen, bathroom, or vanity. It’s made from dark brown speckled clay and layered with orange glaze. I am always looking for cute dishes to stash my hair pins in, and this one is perfect. . .. ... .... ... .. . . #ceramics#clay
This Saturday in the studio has been busy! We’re starting off the year right here at @artshackbrooklyn with lots of fun energy and great work being made. I have new pieces in the glaze kiln right now and I can’t wait to show you! Some bigger mugs, tumblers, and bowls are all coming soon! . .. ... .... ... .. . . #ceramics#clay
One part of making pottery I love is when I come across the need for a certain vessel, I can make it myself. When my partner and I drink coffee in the morning on weekends (usually from bed) I like to carry the half & half in a separate container. This chubby carafe will loop perfectly around the finger of the hand that holds the French press while the other hand holds the mugs. With a small opening to avoid spills and a two finger handle, this lil piece is perfect. Hoping for glaze breaks along the carved detail! 🤞🏼 ...
Coffee is a critical aspect of my practice. I love drinking it, making it, and sharing it with other people, especially in handmade ceramics. If you come by @zabkacoffee in #bedstuy, you can share a cup of coffee with me. I love when customers tell me about their new jobs, show me their just-born babies after coming in pregnant for months, or want to talk about my work. Some of us have a unique relationship with our baristas and it’s one of my favorite parts of sharing coffee with others. . .. ... . . . #ceramics ...
