Sneak Peek revisited for Design*Sponge

Design*Sponge- really one of the very original design blogs- wonderfully curated by Grace Bonney and now a cadre of other talented folks- definitely played a large role early on for my ceramics. Grace generously covered my work in the early days and really helped to spread the word- and for that I am always grateful! 
The site has really become an institution now and a go to for what's happening on many fronts in the art meets high craft meets design world.
Anne Ditmeyer of the blog Pret-a-voyager and a contributor to Design*Sponge, had contacted me a few months ago to do a sneak peak of not so much the studio, but of my house and the cottage showroom. So of course, I dispatched to Anne a bunch of photos of the house that I take from time to time- but I quickly realized how difficult it is to photograph home interiors..really it is. So I enlisted the great help of Marshall Gordon- a great bay area photographer who came and rescued me from bad photos--
