Karen Olivo's Pottery Collection Now For SaleTony Award-winning Broadway performer Karen Olivo recently announced her early retirement from show business and proceeded to follow through on new plans to live a life as an artist far away from New York City, and, now, the fruits of the triple-threat star's labors are available to view and purchase via craft retail site Etsy.

Olivo currently offers a number of affordable, one-of-a-kind pottery items on her Etsy site, which is based out of Madison, Wisconsin pottery shop, GreenAware.

Additionally, Olivo writes on her new Etsy site, "I use to make art for Broadway. Then I made art for TV. Now, I'm making art for you."

The GreenAware store itself is subtitled "Consciousness gives way to Form."

Ranging from a mere $35 for a rustic, turquoise-tinted cream dispenser - named "Alice Creamer" - up to a two-handled "Thug Cup", a split-personality themed "The King Cup/The Queen Cup" and beyond - as well as the grandest of all packages, the Eggshell series, at $70 - Olivo offers a host of handmade household items for everyday use, each with a specialized description presumedly penned by the performer herself.

The aforementioned Eggshell series is described as such: "The Eggshell series is for an individual. It consists of a Tall mug, a short mug, and small bowl. These forms were made for the person who lives alone and LOVES it! One of a kind items." Similar descriptions of each item are included on the site.
