I first saw San Francisco artist, Paula Lopez Otero’s, beautiful ceramics at Tilde in Portland.  It made me smile.  I bought one with a cork top similar to the top image – it now sits next to one of my rain drawings on our fireplace mantel.  Aren’t they lovely?   I love her colors and the vintage feel they each have.  She sells work on Etsy and if you are in Portland, check out Tilde’s great collection of Paulova Design ceramics.
