I first saw the work of Joey Watson through Weed-Craft, my favorite nighttime internet haunt, a tumblr of totally high ceramics work. Sometimes a single image can just shake you in a completely new direction, and force you to confront the easy reliances in your taste. These pieces by Watson, who lives in Kansas, were like that for me — the espresso cups have crystals and little balls and carabiners attached to them! Also, zig-zag straws! They are completely rad, deeply weird.
