The name of our mug business is, as everyone knows, desertNOVA. The rest of the title is “inspired ceramics”. We have a whole line of mugs that got their start out at the barn. While watching the horses do absolutely nothing, one of them took off galloping along the fence, ran like hell and suddenly stopped, looked around, snorted and went back to grazing. Watching him run, framed by the mountains and scrub brush the need arose to capture him and his spirit on a simple the canvas of a coffee mug. Here`s one of the southwest horse mugs that was inspired by that day at the barn.
