Homegrown Pottery

Have I mentioned I am a potter?

Amongst all the chaos of this growing season I have finally found the time to make a few pots. My ultimate goal is to make pots in the winter, when gardening chores slow down, however it didn't quite work out as planned this past winter.  The idea is to introduce pots seasonally with the produce i.e. berry bowls sold with berries, asparagus dishes with asparagus, and well you get the idea. If you’re wondering all my pottery is stoneware. It is also dishwasher, microwave, oven, and food safe. So as they say "without further ado" ...

I am glad you like them. They are available at the market. Some things will come and go just like seasonal produce. If you are interested in a particular piece and will be driving that far send me a message in advance so I can bring what you are interested in.

Thanks Nathan. I am also going to bend your ear about gardening in southern Illinois.
