Hope + Mary
Each piece is hand made and unique, using a Korean technique called mishima to create images on the pieces. Each image is hand drawn onto the surface of the clay with a needle tool. After the drawings finished, she covers the piece with black slip, letting it dry. Then she carefully wipes away the excess slip leaving behind the drawn image.
Due to the hand drawn imagery and wheel thrown porcelain of Hope + Mary ceramics, products and animals may vary.
Approximately 10-12"w x 6-7"h

Hope + Mary is based in Chattanooga, TN by way of Chicago, IL, and Augusta, GA, where Hope taught art in the inner-city, painted portraits, and raised her two children.
Mary, her mother who died in 2011, was, and still is, Hope's most cherished creative partner. Her hope is that each piece brings beauty and delight into everyday functions and experiences, as she strives to make objects that enhance the ordinary of everyday life and bring pleasure, beauty and presence.
