About the artist Kris K. has been doing pottery for over ten years. "Throwing clay on the wheel is a way for me to be grounded, centered, connected, and at peace. I started out just wanted to try something new and I just connected with every part immediately. Inspiration comes from activities here in Colorado and nature. I enjoy making pieces that someone would use everyday. I love to see a mug I made in my friend's home, in the sink not on a shelf. I don't make a standard or sets because I like to think that a handmade mug should be as unique as every individual and fit that individual. I just enjoy making them!"
