A little pot – the gift that keeps on giving.

Yes, I now have your attention and I must clarify that I am talking about CLAY – my drug of choice. For almost 40 years ( impossible!), I have been hopelessly addicted to clay and the process of forming functional vessels out of plastic mud and then firing to permanence. Humble pots, whether a small mug or a teapot or a colorful lamp, become integral parts of the rituals of daily life.

And that’s why a handmade pot makes an ideal gift. It might be turned on, fondled, or placed on the lips as your loved one drinks and thinks of you (and possibly of the maker) with a smile.
