Love this little vase! It looks exactly like the photos and is so unique. I was drawn to it right away for the colors, shape and natural motifs and when I unwrapped and saw it in real life I loved it even more. Also very much appreciate the careful protective wrapping and prompt shipping.

Ros makes the most beautiful pottery! The relief on this mug is so fat and detailed, capturing the texture of the tiny lavender flowers...eeeek, I love it. Great weight and glaze, too.

The most beautiful mug I've ever seen. I just adore the pine pressed into the mug and the drip is gorgeous. So happy with the shipping time and careful packaging as well. Thank you for this beautiful creation of art ☺️🌲

Beautifully made! Love the texture of the lavender and this little piece of Summer during the Winter months. Packaging was reused/recyclable and looked so nice. Would recommend this as a gift too!

I ordered this mug as a gift and it’s so beautiful I want to keep it for myself. I discovered Ros’s work at a little shop while on a trip to Shenandoah (I got a plant potter) and have been so pleased with the aesthetic and quality of the products.
Handmade ceramics inspired by nature
Hello, I’m a potter and ceramicist in Harrisonburg, VA, and I’m glad you found me!
My pottery is inspired by a lot of things, often plants and flowers I find in my yard or around town. I like to play with texture and glazes that flow and move in organic ways. For me, pottery is a way to give up a bit of control in my life, and I see it as a collaboration between myself and the unseen, and often unpredictable, forces of nature that take place in the kiln.
I work with mid-range stoneware, and a combination of commercial and homemade food-safe glazes. I like to work slowly, mostly handbuilding with slabs and coils.
Thank you for supporting me, and I hope you enjoy my work!
I am a small-batch potter living in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

I recommend handwashing and microwaving for short periods of time (e.g. 30 seconds) to prolong the life of these pieces.
Note that some specific pieces are not microwave- or dishwasher-safe, and that will be noted in their descriptions. This applies to pieces with gold plating or wire decoration, and I generally only use these with decorative items that aren't meant to hold food or drink.
Gift wrapping and packaging
If you select the "gift wrap" option at check out, I will wrap your gift in kraft tissue, and tie it with white and gold string.
I do not sell wholesale at this time.
