We just received this and love it! It's even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. it's perfect for what we bought it for--serving really big salmon fillets. But it would work well for lots of other applications (like bread and cheese as shown in the picture). It's lighter than I thought it would be. the varying colors and sheen of the finish are what makes it so visually stunning in person and can't really be captured in a photo. This platter is well worth the price. It arrived quickly and expertly packed and Dan has been a pleasure to do business with. He is a true artist.

This was the second garlic keeper I purchased from Dan. Bought for myself and a friend for her birthday. They were both so gorgeous when I got them I couldn't decide which one so let friend choose. She chose this aqua and I got the gold. Both are so unique we just love the Asian influence too. Dan is a favorite of mine on Etsy and I will continue to watch for other great art from him. Received items very quickly and well packed.

Bought this for a friend and another for myself. When I received them I couldn't decide which I liked better so let the friend choose first. She was thrilled! So different than the other garlic keepers we've seen. She took the aqua and I kept the gold. Both are gorgeous. These came well packed and were shipped out very quickly. Love Dan's work. Truly unique and so well done.

About

The Joy of Making Beautiful Things

My first pottery lessons were at the Bloomfield Art Association, Bloomfield, Michigan, in 1973, studying under Harris Deller. I had carefully planned this clay adventure while I was in Germany as a soldier. I had ventured out to see pottery in the German countryside villages. It was wonderful; their pottery was an unassuming offering of what beautiful functional pottery can be. So warm. So inviting. So beautifully designed and crafted.
WHY CLAY?
I was drawn to the clay arts because of their three dimensional nature and sculptural promise - the ability to go from functional to sculptural within the same medium. I have always danced between graphics and three dimensional disciplines. Yet, in ceramics, there is this ultimate sacrifice - everything you make must be brought to this curious submission of fire...fire and it's capricious nature. The changes and wonderful natural effects that occur with my glazes is a wonderful gift - never knowing what exactly I may receive.

After years of bouncing about setting up pottery shops in various cities, I established a pottery operation in a small suburb of Detroit 10 years ago. Since then, I have focused on unique forms and glazes.

I pray that you may follow my story...
