These are works of art. I purchased as a Mother's Day gift for my MIL. She was elated and can't stop telling me she loves them! One word to the incredible artist from my MIL...leave a signature-perhaps your link address on the bottom. She would love to be able to reach you for more items! Please do not hesitate to buy up all items you are looking at!

Hi - If you're considering working with Kathy at Grace Potter, I can say that my experience was a real treat. She made several attempts to get my desired colors "just right" and kept me informed the whole time. She went out of her way to make sure my purchase was prefect. And once I received my items (Oil & Vinegar Cruets), the craftsmanship is fabulous. I highly recommend Grace Pottery and Kathy! Hope this helps - Peter

About

It's Magic!

It starts with earth and hands to form it. Then, add colors from the earth and fire it - and it becomes a thing of beauty and utility.
Several years ago I saw some very old (3,000 years!) pottery. The bowls were primitive, with the finger prints of the maker still visible. They were behind glass, but still they invited touch.
I love the feel of the clay and natural elements that I incorporate in my pottery, and I work to make pieces that are a pleasure to use and will last with regular use. And I am happy to practice an ancient craft that is as relevant to daily life now as it was 3,000 years ago. That , to me, is magic!

A Little About Grace Pottery
For me,making pots is pure joy!From my first bowl,I've been hopelessly smitten.My intent is to create beautiful original,functional pieces.Pottery that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.
MY PROCESS
Most of my pieces start on the potter's wheel.Some are altered and occasionally I hand build pieces.I am constantly inspired by shapes,colors and textures of nature.
I use stoneware clay and always slow fire and slow cool the pieces.Glazes are non-toxic and lead free,some formulated by me and some are commercially available.

Creating and using handmade items are important aspects of my life.I believe that it helps us all to slow down a little and appreciate the moment.
I also believe that some of the happy energy put into making the piece becomes a part of the piece.
