Cephalopod Ink :: Handmade Holiday Vendor Feature!

The gorgeous aquatic themed work of Cephalopod Ink is one of the amazing pottery vendors you will find at this year's Handmade Holiday!

Here's a little bit more about Cephalopod Ink...

Describe your studio.

Crazy! Right now I make everything out of my 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. My studio is in one of the bedrooms, my office is in the other bedroom, by bedroom is in the living room, I glaze in one of the bathrooms, and the kiln is outside on the patio. I do what it takes.

Is there a story behind your shop name?
Cephalopod Ink... 1st part, cephalopods are my favorite category of animals. I love scientific terminology, and it fits well with the graphics I use that are scientific drawings from the 1800's (the other half of my graphics I draw myself). 2nd part, ink, cephalopods produce ink; ink is a play on words of inc, and it looks like my pottery is decorated with ink. And it's just plain fun!

What's your soundtrack while you're working?
Usually audio books, my favorite is Harry Potter.

What are your influences?
Scientific discoveries about the ocean.

I bought a mug back in July and love using it! I can't wait to buy more things from Cephalopod!
