What is Practical Art artisan Jillian Schimmel up to on that clay wheel of hers? Looks pretty normal, pretty innocent, right….? Maybe she’s making a bowl, throwing a mug….Oh, but wait! What’s she doing with that scalpel?!?  ::sharp inhale::

Take a tour through Lisa’s photographs (worth 1,000 words each!) to see Schimmel hard at work in her studio and to get a glimpse of her process.

At what point did you get that it was a juicer? Oh man, and did you ever expect it to be a JUICER-PITCHER?! Ridiculously inventive– no more perilous transport of those hard-earned and sweet, sweet nectars: juicing and collecting happens in one fell swoop with Schimmel’s juicer-pitcher combo. Rediscover farm-to-table brunch with hand-to-home ceramics.
