Each pot is crafted from start to finish by Francis DeFabo in his home studio. He takes the time to create pots that feel as good as they look. Bottoms of mugs are burnished to warm your hands as well as your soul. Wine and whiskey cups are carved and dimpled to excite your fingers as the contents excite your palate. Passing bowls are wheel-thrown with deep, narrow bases and organically flared rims, then squished to alter the shape, all the better for two sets of hands to share heaps of mashed potatoes, pasta, or salad.
All pots are individually handmade, so the size, shape, and surface of each pot is unique. This variability is integral to the beauty of handmade ceramics.
