Kate and Tony Lake are Midwest natives who moved to Florida in 2008. They had each been actively involved in creating art in different forms since childhood. Kate found a more serious love for pottery after taking a wheel throwing class at the Artistic Hand Gallery & Studio; before long, Tony joined in and started hand building. The couple use pottery as a way to express themselves, spend time together, and of course, to "get centered." Together, they are Misty Morning Crafts and now a good bit of their home is a pottery studio, they have a regular spot at both the Lake Mary and Maitland farmer's markets, and they attend other nearby shows and festivals when opportunity arises.
Occasionally venturing into sculptural form, Kate and Tony mainly focus on functional pottery for everyday use. They enjoy using bare clay, layering glazes, making their own tools to create new shapes and patterns, and just having fun making things with their hands. After leaving their old careers and administrative jobs behind, they are making their way as working artists and enjoying their life together with their two awesome doggos, Sam & Penny.
