Handmade in Indianapolis
From our hands to yours. Hand crafted for slow living in a fast world.
new at gravesco!
It’s time to hunker down, cozy up and slow your roll with some mellow time at home enjoying the winter months. Whether you call it Hygge or hibernating, we want to help you make this a special time. Love the home you live in.
Ice clinking against the sides of your tumbler while you sip a double old fashioned with some amazing whiskey or your favorite wine from a box - both will be equally at home in your new favorite cocktail cup by Gravesco Pottery.
The gentle ridges made by our fingertips while throwing at the wheel and the thumb dent just right for a comfy grip add to the tactile experience. If you're like me, the person who plays with the beer label, straw wrappers, toothpicks...always needing a tactile experience to settle the movement in your hands, this is the cup for you. Between sips you'll find yourself tracing the throwing lines or your thumb circling the indentation.
In the summer, keep the cocktail cups in your fridge or freezer and they'll keep your beverage cool longer without ice! Always a win for white wine.
Don't think these pottery tumblers are only for adult beverages. We use them for all our drinks and sometimes for desserts, too. Make a layered pudding or mousse dessert in them. Layer up individual tiramisu or a yogurt parfait with fresh fruit and nuts.
This is truly one of the most versatile cups around. Or, you know, just use it for wine because it feels good, drinks well and is nice and stable.
As always, $5 flat rate shipping in the continental United States on your entire order.
Borosilicate glass cocktail stirs and cocktail pitchers will be coming soon!
When a raindrop hits the surface of still water, the impact ripples out in concentric circles. It's a wonderful metaphor for how our actions cause ripples that impact our environment, relationships and future actions. Concentric circles are a lovely tribute or reminder to our impact on the world around us.
Our little hand carved concentric circles dish is just the right size for your rings by the sink, a crystal on your altar, a tea bag, or my favorite is to use it for an air plant. There's something about combining those concentric circles with a living, breathing plant that just makes me happy.
Like everything at Gravesco, we sought an air plant supplier that is ethical. All our air plants are grown in CITES-certified nurseries and never taken from the wild.
CARING FOR YOUR BRAND NEW AIR PLANTS
Yay, they've arrived! After you've unpacked your plants and spent sufficient time marveling at their unique beauty (and possibly giving them names), give them a good soak in a water bath (submerged in the water) for about 20-30 minutes. Shake gently to remove any excess water, and set in a spot with bright light and good air circulation to dry off. Follow the directions below for ongoing care of your plants.
Air plants should be kept where they'll receive bright, indirect sunlight or under fluorescent home/office lighting. Periods of direct sunlight are just fine, but more than a few hours of hot sun will deplete the plants of their moisture. If your plant will be in a spot with some pretty direct light, try misting them every couple of days to keep them hydrated.
Air plants live on air, right? Uh, not right! While air plants don't grow in soil, they definitely NEED to be watered. While the plants can survive for long periods of drought, they will not grow or thrive and will eventually die off if water is too scarce. Follow the directions below for watering your plants on a regular basis and they will stay alive and well for quite some time. The good news is that since these plants are very forgiving, you shouldn't stress over their care schedule. There's certainly no need to get a babysitter when you go on vacation.
As a main method of watering your plants, we recommend giving them a thorough rinsing under running water or letting them soak in a bath of water for 20-30 minutes. You can use a bowl, the sink or even the bathtub if you've got a family. After their shower or bath, gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set out to dry in an area with enough air circulation to dry them out in about 4 hours. If your plants need an in-between watering, misting them with a spray bottle is a great method. A plant in bloom should be rinsed rather than submerged in water, and take care when rinsing the delicate flowers.
HOW OFTEN DO I WATER MY AIR PLANTS?
Your plants should be watered once per week, and 2-3 times is recommended for optimal care. A longer, 2-hour soak is recommended every 2-3 weeks. If you are in a drier, hotter climate, more frequent watering or misting will be needed. You'll begin to notice that after watering, your plant's leaves will feel stiffer and full of water and they'll be softer and lighter in color when they're in need of water. Wrinkled or rolled leaves can be a sign of dehydration.
Air plants will do best in generally warm conditions (a good range is 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit). In frost-free or nearly frost-free climates they can live outside for the entire year. Like most house plants, they can be taken outside on a porch or balcony for the warm season, just don't expose them to temperature or sun extremes.
GROOMING & AESTHETIC MAINTENANCE
Everyone needs a little grooming once in a while! It is normal for some of the lower leaves of your tillandsias to dry out as the plant grows or acclimates to a new environment, and those leaves can be gently pulled right off of the plant. If the leaf tips have dried out, you can snip the dried tip off (try trimming at an angle to leave a natural-looking pointy tip), and the same can be done for the plant's roots. Don't worry about harming your plants during grooming--they'll regrow.
Find a quiet space. Take a deep breath.
Get grounded. Be connected.
Carry your altar with you.
We've created an earthing kit for the modern nomad.
Your Earthing Kit contains the following elements:
- A cotton bag to contain all the elements with enough room to add personal items if you so desire
- A tin to hold everything safely inside the bag
- A handmade altar cloth by Rebecca of Gravesco Pottery woven with the intent of creating a sacred space you can take anywhere
- Three cards with information about how to use your earthing kit and some information on the crystals themselves. Deb has crafted a simple ritual you can use anywhere for grounding and healing.
- 1 selenite wand
- 1 quartz crystal
- 1 black tourmaline
- 1 amethyst
- 1 citrine
- a small packet of pink salt infused with organic rosemary and lavender
- a private link to learn even more about working with each element of your earthing kit
Deb Swingholm of Flowering Moon and Rebecca Graves Prowse of Gravesco Pottery have spent the better part of two years exploring what would make an ideal ritual kit that can easily travel anywhere yet be personal, adaptable and work effortlessly for a variety of uses.
When you receive your earthing kit you will find a QR code in the bottom. Simply scan that with the notes app or camera app using your phone to open a portal to even more knowledge about incorporating ritual into your daily practice, how to work with each element of the kit and a series of opportunities to explore the Divine Feminine and your own energies more deeply.
Rebecca says, "It is my desire to create a portable altar and all the tools needed for rituals wherever you are, regardless of your skill level or familiarity. I wanted to create something that a beginner can use and learn from to gain confidence in making ritual an enhancement in their daily lives. I also desire that experienced practitioners enjoy the ease of having an altar at their fingertips whenever and wherever they are, to be able to call upon the energy of the crystals, create a sacred space or perform a ceremony in any moment."
Deb says, "The most important thing you need in order to craft your own personal ritual is a clear intention or prayer. What are you trying to accomplish? Once you know that, think about how you can represent that desire and give it wings. What actions, colors, symbols, tools or prayers can help make that real?"
It is our collaborative desire that you benefit from the knowledge and ease of the portable earthing kit.
Due to the handmade nature of each kit, we are currently accepting pre-orders for the first set to be released on Saturday, March 20th - the spring equinox.
We love loose tea and herbal tisanes. What we don’t totally love is the standard tea ball because it doesn’t give the tea enough room to move in the hot water for steeping. When I found these glass tea steepers I was intrigued. The first time I used one I fell in love.
Simply place your tea inside the tube, pop the cork in the top, dunk it into your mug of hot water and allow it to steep as long as is appropriate for your tea blend. When it is done steeping lift it out, let it drain and set it off to the side while you enjoy every sip.
To wash the glass steeper I simply run water in it and flush out the loose tea. If a little piece gets stuck in one of the slits, run water over it or I like to use a bottle brush for a deep clean inside.
The Glass Tea Steeper makes a lovely addition to any of our mugs as a gift for a tea drinker or for treating yourself to a cozy tea ritual.
