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!

• Free shipping – includes handling, 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’. It is now more durable, able to hold water, and is food safe if ‘glazed’ on the interior for food use.

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.
For your piece of mind, we insure every piece we ship.

Tall vase with sculptural character. Reflective of Prayer cloths or Prayer rags.
Intention

SOLD

Intention ©
Have you traversed around Devil’s Tower in Wyoming? If so, you have seen the trail of prayers left with special intentions. This vase offers our own opportunity to send out intentions or messages as well.

I wanted to create ‘something’ that reminded me of those holy trails of trees with prayer cloths or prayer rags, as they are sometimes called, suspended from its branches.
The encircling and protruding bands have a textural look similar to small branches and twigs, offering a place to attach wishes, dreams, prayers, etc.
I hope you are inclined to use this vessel as it was inspired.
This sculptural element makes it engaging both with nature placed inside, or when it is holding only cloths.

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.
