Mesiree` is actually two people. Mary and Desiree`. We’re kind of a hive mind really. Between the two of us we make awesome, functional, (nerdy) pottery. On our own we each make…well…nothing you’d like to buy. Codependency has its perks.
When we became full time potters we found a lack of “pottery with personality.” Namely, our own, with our own interests. After working in the corporate world and spending so much time trying to conform, when we started our own business we wanted to do something completely different, which broadcast what we loved and what brought us joy. When we took that aesthetic out into the world, we found that we weren’t the only ones that felt that way. We love Ghibli movies, fantasy, sci-fi, and comics, everything that Comic Con celebrates. And we seek to portray those themes artistically in our pottery.
