My cupboard is overloaded with vintage ceramics. I used to have my studio right next to a thrift store. Every Monday, when the fresh goods had arrived, I went there to look for second-hand ceramics. The pieces started to pile up and I decided to hand-decorate them with my illustrations.

Sometimes I have to start each piece over twenty times because I insist that the illustrations look fragile yet tight. Still my cupboard is overloaded, so I sell the ceramics at Etsy.
