This wonderful mug is custom-made for us by a local Shipshewana artisan. Jesse Woodworth from Riverwood Pottery grew up in Shipshewana, moved to the Denver area but decided to bring his young family back home to live at the family farm. Jesse is related to Rebecca Haarer of Rebecca Haarer Arts & Antiques and his pottery shop now occupies what many of us knew as the “quilt room” at Rebecca’s shop on Morton Street. It’s heartwarming to know part of Rebecca’s shop is moving forward to a new generation. If you stop in, you may see one of Jesse’s children accompanying their Dad as he works – something I’m proud to honor and support and hope you will too.
