"I had been a fan of Michael's (Cynthia's husband) incredible turned teapots for a long time. We connected online and eventually got together in person," Chris said. "I was impressed with photos I had seen of Cynthia's pyroengraving, but when I saw it in person, I was totally blown away."
Chris made the hats and stands and shipped them to her. The results, well ... judge for yourself!
