It is gratifying to touch things that aren't made in a factory. Especially not in a factory in India or China. Each piece felt solid in my hand. They felt sturdy, earthy, hearty, and immensely useable. The everyday kind of usable. When the everyday stuff is this pretty and satisfying, I think doing dishes would be a pleasure. Pottery is sensuous. It satisfies all my tactile and kinesthetic yearnings.
There are miniature vignettes waiting to be noticed at every turn, wherever you look. The mermaid actually waved to get my attention. The seal winked. There is even a storybook tree house. Photos can't do it justice. Hopefully, now you'll be tempted to go see for yourself.
They are also on Facebook besides the Etsy link above.
(If you google their website it does have a warning for malware if you enter the sight. I hope the owner's fix this as soon as possible. I'm assuming some third party infected this site - from what google said it hasn't originated from them.)
