Yaaaalll!!! Get into these mask mugs!!!! It’s cooling off so that means oodles of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and cider. You might just need a tribal mask mug. 👀☕️

I always get asked if I make the mugs I sell in the studio. One day I’ll try my hand at stoneware, but for now these amaaaaaaazing mugs are the only items in the studio that I don’t have a hand in creating.

They are available online now.

Here’s the last wood patterned piece in the collection from earlier this week. This was originally supposed to be 4 smaller pieces. After I laid the foundation for those I wasn’t feeling them at all so I pivoted. Once I pivoted I no longer had a plan so I just played with the angles and layers. It turned out to be one of my favorite wood patterned pieces that I’ve made to date. It reminds me of a kaleidoscope!!!

Here is the 3rd piece in the collection. When I am creating wood art each individual piece connects to another to form an angle or geometrical shape within the piece. No one piece sits alone. In keeping with this woodworking is a time of prayer, meditation, and reflection on meaningful connections. Very few/ if anything in life stands alone. Things are connected. Some times they are mental or emotional connections. Other times the are physical. Connections between the tangible and intangible. The connections we make as humans and the connections between us and God.

I grew up a church kid. There are some things about that experience that I LOVED. However it wasn’t a safe space to ask certain types of questions and look meaningful connections between things in a very curious and wonder filled way. Woodworking has been come one safe space for me to do that. And God truly meets me in that space. Grateful this part of me has been preserved💗💗💗

I think the thing that amazes me the most is that Jessica Skinner can look at something old, unwanted, and beaten down, and imagine something beautiful that it can become. That vision is something unique to a creator. The ability to envision a masterpiece from what someone else might view as junk, then to actually bring it to life with time and extreme detail, is what makes you the most talented person. I’m still in awe, and excited to see the next big thing🙌🏾💯 Check out and follow JBurgess Designs ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
