Plates & Bowls
Bread Dip Dishes
Grate a garlic clove over the bottom of the bowl, add olive oil and your choice of herbs and spices, and dip away! These dishes pair nicely with my plates & bowls, and they make a wonderful gift for your garlic-loving friends. Use your imagination, grate fresh ginger and add soy sauce for a fish or vegetable dip.
Vases & Pots
Who doesn't love a handmade mug? Mugs are very personal and they make a thoughtful gift for anyone, including (and especially) you!
Add a warm glow to the night with a lit candle in one of my candleholders.
Relax and enjoy knitting without having to worry about your yarn balls rolling away! Enjoy the beautiful bowl, as well.
From Japanese 楽 (raku, “fun, delightful”) for the pottery used in the Japanese tea ceremony; Raku is a method of firing pottery. Each piece is fired in a kiln until the piece reaches about 1800 F. The piece is removed with tongs while red hot and placed in a container with a combustible material like paper or sawdust. The combustible material ignites and the fire & smoke react with the glaze to create very unique and unpredictable colors, lusters and patterns. Each piece of Raku is a one of a kind work of art! Raku pieces are not suitable to hold liquids but can serve well as candy dishes, potpourri pots, holding any dry material, or as decorative art.
My fun, unique ornaments will add whimsy to your house and garden. I have some wonderful Holiday ornaments, too!
"A nest full of eggs symbolizes new life, prosperity, and hope for the future. May this lucky nest bring good things to your future!" The Lucky Nest comes in a gift box with this blessing on the tag. It makes a thoughtful shower or housewarming gift. And I now have The Empty Nest, as well, a great gift for an empty nester. It makes a nice little dish for rings, earrings, etc.
Make someone a Star! I will personalize a star ornament to make a cherished gift for a baby shower, baby's first Christmas or any special occasion that you may be celebrating.
