while shopping around the Fillmore I met Joanna Mendicino . You might've seen here ridiculously cute bird vases and such around town or on etsy. Joanna grew up here in Northern California, studied at Berkeley, and went on to pursue her interests in ceramics full time.
Joanna was super sweet, and if I had more of a holiday budget this year I would've gotten a vase for myself or someone I love. Anyhow, if you're thinking of gift ideas, her stuff is beautiful and sweet, and it's always great to support local independent artists.
