Cymbidium or boat orchids. The term ‘evergreen’ in my part of the world usually conjures up thoughts of pine trees and spruces, but Cymbidium are evergreens in their native tropical and subtropical habitat.
Michelle Summers Cup Appreciation Post
I have loved Michelle’s work for years. All of it. Everything. I’ve read her entire blog, which is full of inspirations and some process photos (not to mention pictures of her adorable old studio). I’m still not sure what kind of magic she uses to get all of those gorgeous surfaces, but that’s okay. I like the mystery of her watercolor-like glazes, fine lines, and playful carvings.
My favorite objects that she makes are cups, especially the ones with playful feet and characters in relief.
