Mettes Pottery {Denmark}

Not only can this lady make beautiful children's clothing, but she's a fine potter who crafts some extraordinary pieces. Meet Mette of Mettes Pottery located in lovely Denmark, a country that I hope to visit this year if all goes as planned. Her work makes me happy and her studio is wonderful.

It reminds me of my classroom when I was a child, art class was always my favorite. It smelled of clay and I loved all of my art teachers. When I see these studio shots I can almost smell the clay and paint. Remember that scent? Think about it for a moment, I'm sure you will. The lighting here is so pretty the way it filters in like it does. I wonder if she teaches a class in this space? Oh, If only Denmark were a little closer I would have to visit her and bring home a pretty mug and lots of nice memories of what would be quite a special afternoon I'm sure.

I really appreciate it when artists share their workspace online because it really makes me feel like I know them somehow - you know, it's a personal space and the fact that they're sharing it and showing the process gives me this sense of community and friendship. Mettes Pottery is lovely. I sense the lady behind the work is equally precious.
