Make the time…

to make yourself a cup of tea/coffee, sit down for 20 minutes and discover the world and work of Anne Mette Hjortshøj (potter). She lives and works on the small Danish island of Bornholm situated in the Baltic Sea. “Paying Honest Attention” can be seen https://vimeo.com/39375145 .

When you have finished watching the video, look down at your cup and ask yourself. “Does this cup enrich my life or is it just stuff?” ” Can I feel the spirit the of  maker?”

I know that buying handmade can be expensive. However, owning even just one piece will make you see beauty everywhere and that is priceless.

PS: Thanks Vicki for passing this onto me. It made my heart sing.
