If you know anything about Of a Kind, you know we're all about a work wife. So when we heard that Lisa Jones of Pigeon Toe brought her sister Sam on a couple years ago to help her run her booming biz, we had loads of questions for the both of them. Starting with the obvious: How do they do it without creating Thanksgiving-ruining tension?

Illustrator Cerise Zelenetz's off-kilter, delightfully witty doodles and paintings are a bit reminiscent of Picasso's, if Picasso had been a very cool twenty-something woman who split her time between New York, Paris, and Vermont. Given that, you might be surprised to find she's a big fan of super-accessible supplies like Sharpies and generic black pens and even flirts with washable markers made for kids. Here's a more detailed list of what she loves and why - maybe it'll convince you to start making some art, like, right now? READ MORE

Almost every ceramicist out there coats their pieces in some form of gleaming, sealing paint, but Brooke Winfrey of BTW Ceramics really has fun with that finishing treatment. Brooke's ambitious patterns range from black-and-white line drawings to full-color splatter motifs, all done on mugs and planters she painstakingly hand-threw or pinched herself. Pretty high stakes, right? We asked her to help us brush up on all that's involved in getting in on her glaze game. READ MORE
