I recently discovered Emily McCoy’s playful porcelin tableware at Daisy Dog Studio, her company named after her pit bull Daisy. Items all have sweet little Daisy on the bottom, a once abused and abandoned pit bull that Emily rescued and simply adores. Emily, a New Hampshire native, was trained in textile design but turned to pottery when she was pregnant. She got her start at paint-your-own ceramics studios, purchasing items and letting her creative imagination run wild. Fond of the craft, she invested in a kiln and progressed from there. Now, she has her own business in New York’s Tribeca, complete with a retail space and online shopping available via her website. I love the colors, the country charm and the energy of the pieces. Do you?
I’m signing off for the weekend, still awaiting some photos of the Houston “mystery” retail space so we can all tour it together next week… I hope you have a great weekend! I’ll see you on Monday with more Fresh Finds – including a surprise!
