Kim Hau Handmade Sheep Mountain Teacup

Purchase these two teacups as a set or individually.

About the Artist:
Kim attended Metropolitan State College of Denver where she received her BFA in communications design in 2002. There was where she discovered her love for making functional ware while taking ceramics as one of her craft course requirements. She loved everything about it, the studio life, the chemistry of glazes, and the whole process of forming mud into a finished pot for use in your day to day life. After graduating, she enrolled in many ceramic classes/studios wherever she lived to continue practicing and playing with clay while working as a graphic designer, English instructor in Japan, and substitute teacher. She learned from great potters in Colorado, California, and Japan. As her passion for making pots kept growing stronger and stronger over the years, she finally decided to make the leap to pursue pottery full time in 2013 when she moved to Los Angeles, CA. Her constant curiosity and inquisitive nature helps drive her to passionately improve her skill and design in clay.
