This is probably the nicest review I have gotten on Etsy. I enjoyed reading this detailed description on how this customer thinks about a wood fired porcelain cup he bought. Selling these cups is always a little bittersweet for me, because there are not many left and I haven’t fired in an atmospheric kiln in a while (and am not planning on producing work for it eiher). Those were special times, so I appreciate it greatly when somebody else displays excitement over my handmade cups:
“There’s a lot going on with this mug, both visually and in terms of texture and glaze. You know what? I dig it! I love functional wood fired ceramics and this one is a very welcomed addition to my collection. Sure, it’s dramatically different from Melanie’s China paint and gold luster work, but I’ll take it just the same! I look forward to examining this cup every time I use it and pondering the process behind its creation. Melanie’s work is so interesting and I highly recommend it. Thanks, Melanie! This is a beautiful mug!
*Update: I forgot to mention how well Melanie packages her work. My mug arrived safely and securely. Very nice touches, Melanie!*”
