Rebecca and Sally, retired Ohio educators and owners of Black Pug Pottery, have visited New Orleans many times and enjoy very much the cuisine, culture, swamps, and especially the architecture! When Rebecca’s long time pug companion Rudy passed away, she felt the need to honor his memory, and did so by blending her artistic talent and interest in the mausoleums of New Orleans. Rudy’s memorial caught the eye of friends and family, and with their support, prodding, suggestions, and encouragement…. a business was born
BUT….The artists couldn’t just stick with one type of pottery, and they began creating a fun line of high fired stoneware, Pet Lover Mugs & Stuff.
