Hello fellow tea lovers and artisans,

I am honored to have been invited to be a part of this forum. I am an avid tea drinker and hope to be involved and learn as much as I can here.

I am a ceramic artist who loves making functional pots for people to use and enjoy in their daily lives. My influences are derived from many aspects including, animals, electricity, racecars, water, women, and as always other artists work.
I strive to improve my work on a daily basis and look forward to sharing this adventure with you all.

A link to my etsy site is listed below.

Thanks so much,
Nathan Bray

Whimsical ... yeah that is the word I was looking for!

I am thinking that 3-4" W teacups sans handles would do very well with members of TC! :idea: Celedon!

Like this one purchased by member Hopeofdawn ...

Howdy folks,
Thank you all for the warm welcoming. I am currently in the process of making work for another firing, to be done in the next couple weeks I hope. From that I will have some new things to show. For now I am posting a few more images of work I recently put onto my Etsy shop.
thanks for taking a peek.
Nathan
