Kate Hust

Ice Cream is the one treat I could not live without...Kate Hust has a thing for ice cream too.  In fact she has a page on her blog devoted entirely to ice cream recipes. 
Kate "loves to sew, knit, paint, and draw but always comes back to clay.  She enjoys mixing all of these mediums to make new genres and unusual pieces." She writes a blog full of photos and words that illustrate how moments in her life translate into pieces of art.  One cannot read it and not go away with the feeling that life is good and full of hope.

"We cook almost every night so I love making things that we would use in the kitchen; pitchers, garlic dipping bowls, mugs... " and to go with that: ice cream...

Kate shares this recipe:
Carmel Latte Ice Cream

2 cups whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 packet Starbucks carmel VIA
1 packet Starbucks decaf VIA

Whisk eggs and sugar together.
Add creams, milk and via coffee packets. Stir until dissolved.
Freeze in maker according to manufactures instructions. Transfer to freezer safe container and continue to harden in freezer.

"As much as I love these items, I am most proud of my pieces that put a twist on functional pottery. Last year I began making journal covers from clay. I love mixing ceramics with other materials like silk, leather, paper and wool." The result changes the traditional functionality to one that works in tandem with feeding the soul and nurturing the inner self.

Find out more about Kate's art on her blog and etsy shop.

Kate Hust: 
"I make art because it brings me great joy, and I thrive from sharing it with others."
