Take Note

You know how flowery folks say words "lift from the page" sometimes when they're reading? Well, the same's true of music notes—just ask maker JoAnn Stratakos, whose three-dimensional tribute to melody gives familiar symbols a little body. Thrown individually in JoAnn's studio, each mug is carved and decorated before it's fired. Hand painted details and careful sanding ensure that each mug is both finely crafted and unique—you know, a little like each piece of music. Ideal for musicians, lovers of music, or those who are just learning to read the stuff, it'll make your coffee (or tea; your choice) sing... if you'll excuse the pun. Handmade by JoAnn and company in Effort, Pennsylvania.

"I tend to make things I like, things I’d like to have around me," says ceramist JoAnn Stratakos. Once the concept is in place, she uses her knowledge and expertise to guide each piece. In her Pocono Mountain studio, she creates one-of-a-kind glazes, giving her designs subtle variations and unique characteristics. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete. Its the impressive shapes and functionality that makes JoAnn's items truly special.
