Hell Wench- for the last time!
The birds are singing with Hell Wench. Martha hand makes these incredible ceramic cups using the Japanese technique wabi-sabi which translates to “perfection in imperfection”. We think they are wild and real and beautiful and would make the perfect addition to any ceramics collection. Martha is moving to Canada, so unfortunately November 2nd is the last time you will find Hell Wench at The Olive Tree Market. So don’t miss the opportunity to pick up one of her beautiful pieces.
