A Perfect Pair

We call these mugs "The Perfect Pair" not because the mugs themselves are perfect, but the pairing of the glazes is. These glazes work together and highlight each other so well. They even bring out aspects in each other that could not be seen before - intense halos on each side of the drip line.

We also think of our marriage as a perfect pairing. Alex and I bring out the best in each other and uncover beauty in each other that was not known before. We have survived grad school, self-employment, kids, and more, but we have remained the best of friends through it all. I love working alongside Alex in the studio. We support, inspire, and critique each other's work. We actually promised to do that in our wedding vows! Anyway, in a not very eloquent way, I am using these mugs as a way to say I am so grateful to have Alex as my partner in life and in the studio.

And remember - this week everything in our Etsy shop is 10% off!
