Sometimes I truly think that I break plates for a living because I am just a suppressed, tortured ceramic artist. I took a handful of ceramics classes in college, and I really enjoyed it, but man, did I stink at it. Mudpie2 makes just the kind of ceramics that I wish I could make. They are super clean, consistent, colorful and, of course, beautiful. I will someday soon be treating myself to one of her mugs.
