I love Ahrong's control of glaze, and vibrant palette. Her cups are colorful, whimsical and evocative. These demitasse mugs have been flying off the shelf, and I love knowing that her simultaneously delicate yet earthy pieces are gracing the tables, counters, cabinets, and shelves of homes across the Blue Hill Peninsula and beyond. Clients have told me they plan to use the demitasse for espresso, nightcaps, or simply to enjoy their vibrancy. Whatever your desire, enjoy these beautiful little creations from a gifted artist.
