I have loved Michelle’s work for years. All of it. Everything. I’ve read her entire blog, which is full of inspirations and some process photos (not to mention pictures of her adorable old studio). I’m still not sure what kind of magic she uses to get all of those gorgeous surfaces, but that’s okay. I like the mystery of her watercolor-like glazes, fine lines, and playful carvings.
My favorite objects that she makes are cups, especially the ones with playful feet and characters in relief.
This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.

it’s so pretty as a baby, it looks like an actual gem. then suddenly it pupates into a net thing and when it comes out it looks like the fucking Lorax
