Mug Monday: Peg Speciale

It's Mug Monday! Today's mugs were created by Resident Artist and Board Secretary Peg Speciale. Peg became a part of the ClaySpace family in July 2012. She keeps telling us that the mugs don't really reflect her style and she is working on a mug that does. However, we think the mugs definitely express her generous spirit. Enjoy!
