Not sure what to get your husband, wife, family member, teacher, co-worker, gym buddy, friend, local shop owner, barista, and everyone else in between? How about some locally made and artistically awesome art.
The Hot Beverage Lover:
Anyone that loves a hot beverage in the morning, afternoon and night, would definitely enjoy sipping it from a wheel thrown or hand built mug by ceramics artist Lisa W.B. Walker.
