Each Hope & Mary piece is handmade and unique. Hope uses a Korean technique called Mishima to create images on her pieces. Each image is hand-drawn onto the surface of the clay with a needle tool. After she is finished with the drawing, she will cover the piece with black slip. Once the slip is dry, she carefully wipes away the excess slip leaving behind the drawn image. Hope's hope is that she creates work that brings beauty and delight into everyday function and experiences.
