We initially fell in love with clay and then with each other. Asa began working with ceramics as a high school student in Santa Cruz, California. Daisy started throwing at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. In 2015, we met in Phoenix, Arizona at Desert Dragon Pottery Studio and have been collaborating in clay and life ever since.

In case you’re wondering why we call ourselves “The King and the Flower”
“And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God.” 2 Chronicles 14:2
The part of the King recognizes the biblical origin of Asa’s name. In the Bible, Asa was one of Israel’s few, fair Kings. He made a practice of following God and ensuring that his people did the same.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40:8
The part of the Flower recognizes that just as flowers fade, our lives on his earth are beautiful but not permanent. It’s an open invitation to enjoy the transient, learn to let go, and invest in the eternal.
