Tea Cups from Birth to Finish

Stephanie Hillman is an amazing Salt Lake City-based artist who specializes in watercolor and pottery. While we can all appreciate beautiful art, what’s special about Stephanie is that she also makes ceramic Yerba Mate gourds for Tea Leaves & Melody. The love for her craft is instilled in each piece she creates, and it is with that love, passion, and creativity that we can all raise a gourd to Stephanie. Enjoy the video below, in which Stephanie describes and demonstrates her craft.

Some beautiful photos of Stephanie’s work:
