Jen Ray will make you happy.
I’ve blogged about Atlanta-based artist Jen Ray before (her “Siempre” print was on my wish list back in 2009, and more recently her “Toro” print made an appearance on the It List post I wrote for sfgirlbybay), but after opening my mailbox to some of her tiny treasures earlier today, I decided I really need to post about her more recent work.
Look at these clay animals! Oh my gosh, SO cute. I chose the Action Mole with Mint Mittens (I love moles), but there are plenty of others, too. This little guy is my spirit animal, and he’s already made a home for himself on my work table. I love having him there! The best thing about Jen’s work is that it’s friendly. Her illustration style, penmanship and renderings of animals are so open and warm, and everything she makes immediately feels like it could come and live with you and be a good friend.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I want to buy everything in her shop!
UPDATE, December 2014: Jen Ray’s shop (full of gorgeous, handmade pottery) can now be found here.
