Guest Bio

Mesiree` is actually two people. Mary and Desiree`. Their kind of a hive mind really. Between the two make awesome, functional, (nerdy) pottery.
 
When they became full time potters they found a lack of “pottery with personality.”  Namely, their own, with their own interests. After working in the corporate world and spending so much time trying to conform, they started their own business they wanted to do something completely different, which broadcast what they loved and what brought joy.  When they took that aesthetic out into the world, they found that they weren’t the only ones that felt that way.  They love Ghibli movies, fantasy, sci-fi, and comics, everything that Comic Con celebrates.  And they seek to portray those themes artistically in our pottery.

Guest Bio

CreepynCuteShop is the home of the “Share the Love” mission & motto original, metro Detroit-based authentic zombie doll designers & gifters!!! During Summer 2013, Metro Detroit-based pals, Piper Shano (co-owner & artisan) and Doreen Defauw (co-owner & artisan) started designing authentic, original, one-of-a-kind, handmade zombie dolls. While their shop designs authentic, original, one-of-a-kind, handmade zombie dolls, some may be similarly reproduced by “special order” like the ‘celebrity’ dolls and the shop takes “custom order” requests for ‘portrait’ and ‘specialty’ dolls (please contact shop for pricing & details). CreepynCuteShop won ‘Staff Pick’ in 2014 and ‘Reader’s Choice’ in 2015 for Metro Times Detroit Best of Detroit Best Local Etsy Shop, has been featured on Fox2 News Detroit five times, as well as in several other online and print media platforms. CreepynCuteShop has gifted 60+ dolls to celebrity actors and donated numerous dolls with proceeds benefiting local, regional and national charities. No two CreepynCuteShop zombie dolls are the same and since the shop’s mission and motto is “Share the Love,” each (non-celebrity/custom) doll has a heart on them, in one way, shape or form.
