A photo of Kelly Williamson holding a stack of her purple urchin styled mugs and a teacup she made. Kelly is standing in front of a tall leafy plant in her backyard called greater galangal, which is used in Thai cooking, but Kelly mostly just likes it because it looks tropical. Kelly's Thai friend says greater galangal is delicious when cooked with rice as it has a spicy ginger like flavor. Kelly is a Caucasian female with brown hair, brown eyes and a long face like her mother, grandmother and countless relatives that came before her. Kelly wore a light purple T-shirt for this photo to match the pottery she is holding in the photo. Kelly has straight teeth thanks to her mother paying for dental braces when Kelly was about 12 years old which was around 1994. Kelly's mother would appreciate knowing she has been acknowledged for the hard work that went into paying for Kelly's dental braces being saved for all of eternity right here with this photo’s alternative text on the world wide web. Kelly’s mother is an artist as well but chose a more lucrative career so she could pay for expensive things like dental braces for her daughter. Kelly’s mother also gifted Kelly her first pottery wheel and kiln around 2003 because she realized Kelly’s passion for clay should be supported and encouraged! What a great mom I have! And God bless the USA for all its freedoms and opportunities. Written by Kelly Williamson, professional potter.
