All in a clay’s work

Whitney Panetta is an art teacher who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. She’s been teaching high school sculpture for the past five years, but when she’s not molding young hands, she’s molding her own line of ceramics.  

For Whitney, the best part of making pottery is that each piece is unique. “I like them all to be different. Slightly different sizes, slightly different aspects. I like to see my hands on them.”

She describes her work as “shabby chic. It’s kind of messy, but at the same time it has a little refined part to it.” One thing is certain; all of her work is undeniably handcrafted.

After checking her ceramics out at Crafted Westsidewe only have one thing on our minds: how good an after-dinner coffee would look in one of her mugs.

No one has been brave enough to love you, and that shouldn’t make you sad; because you’ll find someone who fears you but is still brave enough to be with you, and that is worth a little heartbreak for now.

Love will come, and it will need a courageous soul to stand and fight with.

“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, and she stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute i could. I gave her a lot of gifts and i lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she could love that much. And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.” ~ Brad Pitt about Angelina Jolie
