Sister Coffee + Gopi Shah Ceramics

I'm excited to announce a partnership between Gopi Shah Ceramics and Sister Coffee. Sister Coffee is the tiniest specialty coffee trailer in Texas located at 1223 Rosewood Ave in East Austin. Run by Amanda Farris, it specializes in great coffee, being nice, putting boobs on things and hanging with pups. 

Amanda asked me to make some custom tumblers for the trailer. I created some drawings initially featuring their sister-power logo. I threw all the cups, trimmed them, bisque fired them, hand painted their logo with a color Amanda and I both loved, glazed them, and fired them.

I think they came out beautifully! Please visit Sister Coffee to drink out of one of my handmade mugs and say hello to Amanda! You can also purchase a cup to take home.
