today's muse is Kenesha Sneed (AKA Tactile Matter): illustrator and ceramic artist from sunny Cali. Kenesha creates swoon-worthy mugs, planters and bowls that come in great prints -- like adorably tiny cactuses, and geometric designs. ah!

i stumbled upon Tactile Matter on Pinterest, and read a little bit about the artist herehere and here. after her ceramic side hustle became too popular to manage, Kenesha took the leap from working a full-time job to being her own boss.

she also gave refreshing advice: like what kind of space you should work in (an inspiring one), how to conquer prioritizing your life (balance!), and the secrets behind her glowing skin (because i need to know).

let's talk Tactile Matter ceramics:

Tactile Matter's ceramics are fantastic -- they are what originally caught my eye. i love the organic, earthen vibes, and bright, natural colors. if i were a better plant mother, i would buy all of these pots for my plant babies. these little pots would also be adorable for storing makeup (a brush and lipstick holder perhaps?), or to use as something practical like a catchall for keys.

the tiny cactus printed pot is my favorite.

i also lovvvved her approach towards having daily routine (via this interview):

I try not to take my routine too seriously, especially since each day might present a new task, so my approach is to work hard while enjoying my time throughout the day...but it usually always finishes with good food and conversation.
