Some of the most amazing things to come out of having a craft business are the opportunities to make connections with other fantastically creative individuals. Ayumi Horie is an incredibly skilled and very well known potter, and, fortunately for me, a fellow lover of Boston Terriers. Ayumi emailed me a few years ago with the idea for a trade, and Michael and I were incredibly excited at the opportunity to have her work in our home. We are now proud owners of two of Ayumi's beautiful pieces with a third piece coming soon to add to our budding collection. Since many of our friends are ceramic artists, her pieces are regularly complemented and drooled over when we have visitors. Here are some great photos Ayumi shared of her newest addition Clover in her two new Beantown sweaters.
