JoAnn handcrafts fun and functional stoneware pottery in her studio in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. JoAnn hand makes pottery for every holiday and occasion – snowmen, Santa, mermaids, frogs, shamrocks, and everything in between!

This year, show someone you love just how much you care with JoAnn’s “Messages From The Heart” Mug. In her Pocono Mountains studio, JoAnn hand-throws each mug on her potter’s wheel, and completes it with chalkboard paint for you to decorate and personalize. Then it is fired and glazed at high temperatures for both lasting beauty and safety in the microwave and dishwasher. Each “Messages From The Heart” mug even includes a stick of chalk for you to write a special message of your own!
