Locally Made Cups, Bowls and Mugs from Artist Cary Lane


!--paging_filter--pThe pottery cups, bowls and mugs made by Acme, Washington–based artist Cary Lane for her business, The Bowl Maker (a href="http://www.thebowlmaker.com" target="_blank"thebowlmaker.com)/a, are delightful, feel-good pieces of functional art. Each piece, faithfully reproduced in Thailand, is a rounded ode to the natural world, complete with little snippets of poetry that tumble out of Lane’s artistic soul: “Sing to what you love,” “It seemed to be her lucky day,” “A little bean of a dream.” Every bowl, cup and mug from her Bowl Line is safe for food and sturdy enough for both the microwave and the dishwasher. Our picks: the Lucky cups (from $8), small vessels perfect for filling with tiny treasures.em Available at Magpie, Capitol Hill, 1408 18th Ave.; 206.860.6035; a href="http://www.magpiekid.com" target="_blank"magpiekid.com /a/em/p
