Just before Christmas I happened upon HR Ceramics (Quebec) on Instagram – yes I find most things on this platform; it is my favourite. I noticed that Hanna had made this sweet country inspired mug that I wanted to buy for my country loving sister in law.
I reached out through a direct message and Hanna quickly responded she would be happy to create this for me! Since I was late making such a request I knew it wouldn’t be ready for Christmas – these things take a lot of time – but it was the perfect gift and I didn’t mind waiting at all.
I was updated throughout the entire process and as soon as it was complete Hanna sent me photos and even shipped it directly to my sister in law – who loved the surprise so much.
After admiring Hanna’s work on her HR Ceramics Instagram account for a while I finally purchased something to have in my own home. Two sweet little dessert plates that have started my hand made tableware set.
The plates shipped out quickly and arrived packed perfectly protected with a hand written note. I love the little things like that, it warms my heart and is a solid reminder of why I set out to purchase items made with love and intention in the first place.
My entire HR Ceramics experience has been wonderful and I enjoy following Hanna’s inspiring pottery journey on Instagram.
As a bonus if you are local to Hamilton Ontario you don’t have to travel far or online to purchase an HR Ceramics treasure. You can find some of Hanna’s gorgeous work at Thuya Floral Arts on King St E . How is that for close?!
I hope this peeks your interest and you go take a look at all of the wonderfully made pieces!
