During my days at the American Craft Council show this year, my favorite time of day was the hour before the show opened. I'd make a cup of coffee (yes, I recommend bringing a Keurig for long shows) and walked the main floor to window shop. Of course, there were MANY things what I wanted to take home with me, but I did not find "the one(s)" until the last day of the show. This is where I met Justin Rothshank of Rothshank Artworks and his amazing ceramics. The imagery Justin uses ranges from political to beautiful to just plain funny (Pants on the Ground mug, anyone?)
Well, I walked home with 3 mugs that day, and have used one every day since the show. Justin hails from Goshen, IN but is the visiting artist at Baltimore Clayworks for the 1000 Cups of Hope Projects this month. Visit his website for more info and to check out his wife's art too. You can find a video of Justin's decal transfer process here.
