Type of Work



Good Luck—You Don’t Need It is a functional ceramic tea set. This piece was inspired by the work of Mariana Baquero, and her use of text in ceramics. It was made using stoneware and fired to Cone 10. The writing that spans the set is from a letter given to the artist by her father before she started her freshman year at Cedarville University.
