I created Artisan Living to share my love of living with art. I believe in using your handmade ceramic dishes, using fine turned wood bowls for everyday purposes, wearing your art, and overall incorporating hand-made pieces into your life as much as possible.

My dear friend JP helped me appreciate how much this concept adds to one’s life when she started using the colorfully-glazed ceramic plates in my cupboard for (gasp!) her toast. I had had them for several years but never used them. Once I recovered, I realized that what had been so hard for me was so obvious to her – beautiful objects are made all the better for being used – not left to sit in the dark. We all know that coffee tastes better out of hand-thrown mugs, especially if you know the person who made them. My toast now tastes better than ever. Thank you JP.
