Today's Featured Artist: Angelique Tassistro!

Angelique Tassistro is one of my fantastic studiomates. She makes beautiful, usable, fun pottery! All of these pots are under $50! There are also a couple of other color schemes to choose from. The first picture is of a "forest glow" scalloped edge bowl-one of her newest color combos and I love it! The awesome thing about giving someone on of Angelique's pots is she often creates them to stack in the cabinet or with a little hook on the back so you can hang buying 2 gifts in one-a piece of pottery and a painting!

Stop by our studio at the Constance Williams Gallery at CURVE studios and garden-open 7 days 11am-4pm!
