What is it about clay that grabs the heart and imagination of so many people? Perhaps it’s because there is something so amazing about transforming a chunk of raw, muddy clay into something beautiful and functional like a mug to drink out of. There is great satisfaction in welcoming a handcrafted object into your everyday life, especially when you have met the person who actually made it.

Watch how it's made.
