She Brings Out the Animal In Me

By Twistie

Several years ago I was perusing a local crafts fair when I happened upon an artist whose work really spoke to me:

What can I say? I love cephalopods.

Then again, I  love critters of all sorts. So, as it happens, does Liz Russell, creator of the R. Honeypots ceramics that so drew me in.

From lemurs to nautili, from owls to ladybugs, anteaters to leafy sea dragons, her work ranges the animal kingdom. Whether you’re looking for a mug, bowl, pitcher, soap dish, teapot, or decorative tile, it’s there and it’s practical. Every piece is individually crafted with non-toxic glazes. They’re microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe, too.

Most of all, they’re delightful in the hand and attractive on the table. They’re solid yet elegant, and easy to live with. How do I know? Because I own several of Liz’s pieces. Whenever she comes to town, I make a point of going to the show and choosing a piece to add to the collection. By the way, Liz is a really fun person to talk to as well as an amazing artist.

But even if you can’t get out to California to see her up close and personal, you can buy her work through her website. Peruse regularly available items, or ask her about a special order. You’ll be glad you did.
