This week's bit of pretty is a recent addition to my collection of mugs. It's a gorgeous piece made by local artist abi lyon wicke. She is, indeed, a "maker of things" -- beautiful, gorgeous things with extraordinary combinations of colour and texture. I have admired her work for a number of years and this year, for Christmas, I asked for a new coffee mug. My family chose this for me and I love it. The only negative thing I can say about it is that its mouth is a little too small to use directly with my Aeropress, but the smile it gives me when I use it more than makes up for that!
Maybe for Mother's Day I'll receive one that's a little bigger on the top.. ;)
