Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Classic Lines Pottery has been a mainstay at the Capital City Public Market in downtown Boise Idaho for the last 20 years where I sell my wares every Saturday April through December. I use a stamp ( CLP ) on the bottom of most pieces as a signature so some people may search for that online. I am now expanding my online presence.

Butter falling out: my response in a recent Facebook post.
99% of the time if the butter falls in the water it's because there were air pockets preventing it from adhering to the sides. If it's too warm the butter will pour into the water but if it is a solid chunk then it wasn't packed tightly, try putting in half and press it down and then the other half on top and press down, it's harder to trap air that way. Change the water once a week, if well water, more often as it is more organic, same goes for highly humid places where there are more airborne organics. A pinch of salt in the water also helps if mold is a problem it's coming from the water. Also make sure there is enough water to make the seal, it's okay for the butter to get wet (oil and water).

Hand thrown original design pottery

Michael Sowers –potter

I first began making pottery in 1970 and after 50 years I still get excited when opening the glaze kiln. There is a relationship with pottery when you use it that you don't get from most material things. You can see and feel the presence of the maker and it connects you to a long history of the makers role in society. In this day and age it is harder to feel connected to our fellow humans with the sterility of mass produced items never touched by human hands. My love of pottery and the processes involved shows in m work, each piece is designed with the end user in mind. Functionality and ergonomics go into every thing I design and make. My experience tells me that no matter what something looks like if it is not comfortable and pleasing to hold you will not use it. The true beauty of handmade pottery is in the use and comfort it gives.
