What a great trio! Every item in Melissa Maya’s shop bares the hallmarks of well made handmade goods, but for some reason I kept going back to his handsome threesome. Melissa not only creates these pieces on her own pottery wheel, she also hand paints the pattern with underglaze and then seals them with a nice, clear glossy graze. They are the perfect size for showcasing fresh cut flora. They’re also dishwasher and microwave safe. The price, just like everything in Melissa’s Etsy shop, is just right for handmade ceramic art.
I’ve chosen a nice selection of items from Melissa’s shop. Be sure to click over to see the entire collection. While you search, keep this quote in mind from Melissa’s bio:
“There is such a big difference between holding something handmade and holding something machine made. I hope that the amount of joy that I get from making these pieces from beginning to end comes through while you are holding and using them in your everyday life. “
One more note: Denver, Colorado based Melissa has just launched a brand new website where you can see many of her pieces in her new gallery. Be sure to check it out.
