A hand carved skull cup is already up there on the cool factor-ometer but when you add a thumb dent in the eye, a spot just perfect for your thumb to settle while you take a slow sip and enjoy conversation with friends, your cup goes from cool to king of the heap.
Approximate dimensions are 3" x 3" and will vary slightly due to the handmade nature of wheel thrown pottery, but that's what makes it so cool.

Liven up your cooking experiences. Store your favorite spice blend or dried herbs in this handmade spice jar. They’ll always be close at hand and add a sense of style to your kitchen.
The unglazed portion of clay helps to manage the humidity levels of whatever you keep inside and the exposed clay of the bottle is the perfect place to write the name of the spice inside using a light colored chalk or pencil.
Each bottle is unique because it is made on my potter’s wheel and glazed by hand.
Sizes vary slightly but average approximately 2-2.5” high without the cork and 1.25-1.5” in diameter.
Sold individually with a natural cork.
More colors will be available soon!

The Gavrinis inspired hand carved smudge bowl is going to add a special meaning to your smudge rituals. The bowl measures approximately 4” diameter and is handmade using a dark stoneware clay from Kentucky Mudworks, a woman owned and operated clay manufaturer that we just happen to love.
Use your new smudge bowl with palo santo, sage, sweetgrass, resin, incense or any of your favorite smudge ingredients. Each bowl comes with a small amount of pure silica sand for the bottom so the bowl does not get too hot to hold and to extinguish your burning whatever.
Every bowl is unique. While you may not receive the exact bowl in the photo, you will receive one from this series. We will intuitively choose the bowl for you.
My favorite sage is from Flowering Moon. If you purchase the set of 3 sage bundles from her she will include the directions for her smudging ritual which is my absolute favorite. It is simple to follow and deeply powerful when performed correctly. It’s more than just burning sage and waving it about. She’ll walk you through every step of the process and you will be able to claim your space while clearing the energy with success every time.

Now for the exciting stuff! This is how the bowl came into being...
When my good friend, Dev Swingholm of Flowering Moon came home from her last trip to France she was alight with stories about visiting Gavrinis.
If you google Gavrinis you’ll find a load of misinformation about it being a tomb with “abstract carvings” dating back to approximately 3500 bc. It turns out, it isn’t a tomb at all but a ritual space and those abstract carvings are actually murals of waves, suns, chevrons, trees, lozenges, coils, spirals and concentric arcs. Those arcs, not abstract at all, are described as “vulvas” and combined with the waves, the carvings “seem to say that the generative force of the Goddess is inexhaustible, rising and flowing like waves,” according to UCLA archaeology professor Marija Gimbutas. Googling “Gavrinis goddess” will get you much more interesting and accurate information.
Reclaiming power as women, the permission to set our own physical boundaries and appreciating the amazing things women do within our civilization has been a motivating force for me this past decade. Not to say I’ve ever been much of a shrinking flower, but knowing that women were once revered as the leaders of their culture and they kept the spiritual wellbeing of their tribes as sacred is heartening. Being surrounded by strong, intelligent women who bring change to their lives and the lives of those around them is inspiring. Finding male friends who support the strengths and power of the women in their lives has given me hope for a future where women do not have to struggle to be valid.
In developing new designs for pottery I have always worked to design objects that function well as intended and to decorate them in a way that means something to me.
Sometimes those carvings say, “f%#* salad, I want cake,” because...hello...cake! Sometimes they are deeply personal carvings inspired by the travels of the women in my circle, meant to empower more women to embrace their inner strength and become the badass they were always meant to be.
