  • The VERY big bowl

    I often get asked to do things I don’t normally do.  I have learned through many tears, disasters, exploding budgets, losing money etc. that I usually won’t do this professionally.  I can do commission work based off of designs and shapes that I already do but when someone asks me to make a custom coffee… READ MORE
