Handmade Artists Forum Blog Ring - Featured Artist

This week's featured artist is Pleasant Peasantry on etsy.

From PleasantPeasantry's Bio:

"We are a husband and wife team who enjoy creating hand-made items! My husband designs ceramics using clay and porcelain and enjoys experimenting with glazes. I, his devoted wife, enjoy experimenting with hemp to make unique creations. Our desire is to create items of artistic expression that please our customers. Any input would be great! Tell us what you think of our items and why. :) We always want to know what YOU think!

"Pleasant" comes from our enjoyment of the simple things in life, while "Peasantry" comes from our frugal lifestyle and love of all things old, natural, and hand-made."

I've always been fond of handmade pottery, I wish I could afford to replace all my dishes with handmade. This is such a beautiful jar. I love the shape and colour combination, actually it is the colour of my dishes. Maybe when I became rich and famous, or at least rich, all of mine will be so beautiful. Until then I'll keep dreaming and buying lottery tickets. Click on the picture to see more beautiful creations by Pleasant Peasantry.

I love the "Pots and Knots"! Very clever and creative, just like them! Great post!

I love the blue glaze on this pot and wish I could create this type of work. I also think it must be wonderful to have two artists in the same family - working together in perfect harmony. Blessings on you both, Violet
