• Free shipping – includes handling, double-walled 270# box with secure packaging, insurance, and ground shipment fees.
• About the process:

Each piece is a one-of-a-kind wheel-thrown clay creation. After being shaped on the potter’s wheel, the piece is allowed to semi-dry to what is called the leather-hard stage. Once it reaches this “half dry” state the piece is able to be shaped, carved and textured. Once completely dry – or ‘bone dry’ it is placed in an electric kiln for a ‘bisque firing’ which takes many, many hours reaching a temp of approximately 1800 degrees. After the piece has completed this bisque process, it is cooled, stained with oxides or stains, burnished if necessary, and glazed. The final process of high firing at a temp of approximately 2200 degrees transforms the piece from a ‘bisque’ to a ‘stoneware’.

Knitters are savvy people. They embrace art and the creative process. Thus, I challenged myself to come up with a sophisticated bowl that brings beauty as well as function.
Of course, being the nature lover that I am….it had to have leaves.
Enjoy for yourself – or give to that someone who makes YOU beautifully knit art! They will love you for it!

Because each vessel is an original and is impossible to duplicated, we package very carefully for shipment.
Each piece is either wrapped with expandable foam or is carefully placed among air bags and peanuts – whichever is most appropriate for the size and structure.

A Walk on the Beach ©

A moonlit walk along the coast–kelp was everywhere on the beach. How mesmerizing nature is! I took home a piece and studied it, and as in all of nature, was influenced by its beauty and its design.
Inside of this vessel, at the neck, is a leather gallery. This ensures a good fit with this style lid. As this vessel is a great example of how a ‘vase’ can be used to hold nature–while you are living with exuberance, or filling it with memories inside–as a lidded vessel. Later, it can be specified to hold your ashes when you pass, if you so choose.

Note: This piece is designed to be free standing without a lid if you so choose. However because of the way the rim was created, and the finite fit of the lid – after firing, there is a matching leather ‘gallery’ that was attached for when using as a lidded and secure vessel.

Hummingbirds flit from flower to flower. As nature feeds their needs among the leaves, so do we embrace what nature has to share.

This was a vessel that had a mind of its own during its creation. It challenged me in ways I was not expecting and the process delivered a very sculptural ‘vessel’ to stand alone or to have lovely flora and fauna in. To be enjoyed at all times.

Reflecting the beauty found on ponds and lakes surrounding the countryside.
Breathtaking in its simplicity.

Quite a few times a year, I travel up to the north country where lakes abound. At least once during each visit I meander through the lily pads and lotus flowers, quietly canoeing through the ripples, embracing what nature shares with us every day!
This dainty one of a kind keepsake has three lily pads and a lotus flower on the lid while the roots of the lily pads swirl around to make the base.
