FEATURED COLLECTION: Dinner Bowls aka Handsome Bowls
Place your order by October 18 for our next firing on November 1.
Bowls come in two glaze colors: Serena Blue glaze and Antique White glaze. (Click on the photos for more details.)
Stoneware Whiskey Cups
The WHISKEY CUP is hand made and features a unique wrapped construction. Its interior is glazed with a contrasting textured exterior. Enjoy the weight and the texture of this cup while you're sharing a drink and a serious conversation with a best friend.
FAVORITE BOWL Collection
FAVORITE BOWLS are some of our most artistic and unique bowls. They fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and sit firmly on a table. The design has tiny "seams" where the different clays have been inlaid and come together. (Don't worry; the bowl is 100% food safe.)
SHELL BOWLS: the bowl with a work ethic!
All Shell Bowls are pre-order which is easy to do. Just shop the Shell Bowl Collection and place an order.
This bowl takes you from morning granola to a midnight snack, hot or cold. It's the bowl with a work ethic!
RAMEKIN BOWLS: Hardy, versatile and...cute.
Our RAMEKIN is simple, hardy, versatile, and... cute! Bake or microwave in it. Serve hot soup or chili. And don't forget your favorite ice cream sundae.
Hand-built with stoneware.
Stoneware TEAPOT Collection
Stoneware teapots are interesting to hand build combining function and artistic form. Functional, food safe and pours beautifully. And...its shape is inspired by a rock we picked up in our vegetable garden.
Design details: Some teapots have little legs, some don't. Some have porcelain inlay, some don't.
Sizes: Approx. 9" x 6" x 3"
Glaze: Teapot interiors are all glazed.
Stoneware CHARGERS or Small Platters
One-of-a-kind, handmade stoneware Chargers, available in several glaze colors, have a lovely presence at a meal.
They are both functional (100% food safe) and decorative. Each Charger comes with a removable wire so it can be easily displayed on your wall.
Stoneware BASKET Collection
Small stoneware BASKETS have a lovely sense of fullness and calm, which you can feel when you hold one.
Sizes: Various sizes from 6" diameter x 4" high
Glazes: Interior colors include Serena Blue, Ruby Red, Butter Yellow, and more as available. The exterior is intentionally unglazed.
