I’m in Love!

…with etsy, that is. It blows me away every time I peruse it…I can’t believe the talent. I have a long list of favorite shops that I’ve been bookmarking and I promise to share it soon. Until then, though…if you love pottery half as much as I do, you must check out Utile Mud, an amazing female potter from St. Paul, Minnesota. Gorgeous wheel-thrown art with amazingly brilliant glazes and interesting color combinations. Did I mention that her work is beautifully photographed? Not that I care about such things…
My favorite part of Utile Mud’s shop is her fabulous profile, where she quotes the great Vincent Van Gogh:
“Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were put on earth to do…with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling”
**EDITED TO ADD: I received my first two pieces from Utile Mud in the mail on Wednesday…a red dinner plate and matching salad plate…they are even more lovely in real life!
