Spoons have held a special spot for me since childhood. I'm not even completely sure what it is that I love about them. They're even higher in my esteem if handmade. The more unusual the shape or material, the better.
The handmade Signature Coffee Scoop was designed to bring a splash of texture and panache to your coffee bar and perhaps add a bit of extra joy to your coffee rituals. Don’t stop at coffee, though. The spoons are also terrific for scooping tea, sugar, herbs, spices and also make a terrific amuse bouche dish.
Each handmade spoon is assembled in my Indianapolis studio using a dark brown stoneware from a couple hours south in Louisville, Kentucky. We like to keep things local when we can. The texture on the handle is made using my fingers so it fits oh so comfortably in yours. Finally, once it’s out of the kiln and polished up, we add a whisp of natural jute for a bit of texture and to hang the spoon next to your coffee station to keep it safe between uses.
Because of the handmade nature of our handmade spoons, you’re going to get one that is like what is shown in the photo, but probably not that exact one. It will have it’s own unique characteristics that we’re confident you’re going to enjoy for years to come.
As always, remember we have $5 flat rate shipping on your entire order when shipped inside the continental United States.
Our handmade pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe, though for smaller items like this I recommend a simple and quick hand wash. The jute twine is easy to remove and put back on, though, if you do decide to run it through the dishwasher for a deep clean.
I hope you enjoy your new spoon as much as we enjoy making them.
It's time to add a little oxygen-generating greenery to our homes after being stuck inside for so long.
The Loft Planter is handmade on the potters wheel using a tan clay and the unglazed saucer is hand built for a little bit of the organic feel. There is a hole in the bottom of the pot for drainage.
Measures approximately 4.5-5" wide and 3.5-4" tall.
We love this size planter for some windowsill herbs or hardy succulents.
We have limited stock on hand. Once gone, we'll continue making them to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery!
You read that right. This is an artist’s choice mug selection. One of the Gravesco Pottery artists will choose a mug for you from the new Loft Collection. Each mug is unique and will be a lovely surprise in your post.
Working in a production pottery studio where we make the same forms day after day allows us to hone our skills on specific details that make our pottery identifiable as our own. At some point, though, we need to just have some fun! The Artist’s choice mugs are a fun exercise in playfulness. We start with a stack of prepared clay, all the same size, with the intent of making no two mugs exactly the same.
Each mug holds approximately 16 ounces of your favorite hot or cold beverage. They are microwave and dishwasher safe. The clay is a rich shade of tan and the glaze is a crisp white that just allows the edges of the marks in the clay to show through. Every mug has Rebecca’s signature handle that is pinched just so as it is made so your fingers rest right where hers do. It’s like holding hands but you won’t catch the cooties from it.
We appreciate that you’re about to allow us to choose a new favorite mug for you!
Coffee on the go is the only way to go in my opinion. While I consider virtually any mug to be a travel mug, it's a lot handier to have one with a silicone lid that keeps the liquid gold from splashing onto the center console of your car every morning.
After 3 years of product development and testing different styles I've finally landed on the travel mug that passed everyone's litmus test in the first round of samples. They're easy to clean, fit your cup holder, are eco-friendly handmade pottery, supporting a small woman-owned business, coffee shops seem to love it when you bring in your own cup (at least here in Indianapolis), no more plastic lids going into the landfill, and best of all it is one of a kind. Yep. Even when I make a hundred of something, each one is a little bit different and bears the marks of the makers' hands.
We hope you enjoy your favorite hot (or cold) beverage in one of our handmade classic travel mugs.
We tend to use them without the silicone band around here which seems fine for a latte, cappuccino or even an Americano. We have found, though, that if you love a good drip coffee you're definitely going to want the silicone heat band or be super crafty and make your own coffee sleeve.
The large 18-20 oz travel mug includes a silicone band. The 10oz and 14-16 oz do not at this point. If you get yours and think you really wish you had a silicone band just shoot us a message and when we get our next shipment we'll drop one in the mail for you. We're still learning about what people will really use and attempting to minimize waste.
Your new favorite travel mug is also microwave and dishwasher safe!
It won't matter if you're sitting at the table, counter or snuggled on the sofa with a bowl of pasta goodness using your new handmade pasta bowl is going to make dinner extra special. Everything looks gourmet in these bowls, even if your pasta is as simple as buttered noodles with a smattering of parmesan and dried parsley. We're not going to judge you for what you eat in them as long as you're using them.
When my friends Bob and Katie messaged me asking if I would make them a set of pasta bowls I was all over it. I'd been looking for a reason to add these to the assortment and having an order for them was the perfect impetus. We have Bob & Katie to thank for inspiring these new bowls!
These pottery bowls are not limited to pasta. The shape is a favorite of chefs for all sorts of dishes because of the way that the bowl envelopes the food, framing it and making it look extra special. We love to use these bowls for thick stews, pasta, cereal, a rustic roast with root vegetables, salads, fruit, or as a serving bowl for a side dish at a family style dinner.
Just in case you're REALLY into plants, these bowls also make a gorgeous succulent planter centerpiece with a landscape of different succulents.
Measures approximately 8" diameter and 2.25" high.
Interior is glazed. Exterior is unglazed.
Microwave & dishwasher safe.
Oven safe if you put the bowls into a cool oven and slowly bring it up to temperature.
Bowls will be glazed to order. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
Each bowl is handmade and completely unique. We make families of bowls, not exact clones which means you can expect lovely subtle differences in each piece. That's what we love so much about handmade pottery!
$5 flat rate shipping on all orders in the continental United States!
Approximately 2" diameter and just the right size for a pinch of this and a pinch of that. These little treasures are also beautiful for sushi. We use them for rings by the sink, pills in the morning, a single decadent truffle, as salt cellars, for little add-your-own spices at dinner, tea bags, food prep when cooking and anything else that fits.
Each set contains 3 unique pieces in a single color.
While these are dishwasher safe they're small enough that it may be a challenge to keep them in the rack. If you choose to put them in the dishwasher we recommend popping them into the silverware holder.

Tomato bisque graced with freshly ground juniper looks divine in the turquoise wobble soup bowl made exclusively for Jason Michael Thomas of Urban Ag Indy. Regardless of the soup you most love, the handmade wobble bowl was made for cozying up with something delicious and relaxing.
When you run your hands over the undulating surface of the hand built bowl you'll notice little dips from where our fingers press into the clay during the forming of the shape. Drips and variations in the glaze show through and highlight the shape. Little folds and creases at the top illuminate the construction process of a flat piece of clay being shaped with two hands over a special form created for just this bowl. As you hold The Wobble Soup Bowl your hands are connecting with ours in a most delightful way.
In my kitchen, I love these bowls for more than just soup, though. This is perfect for an evening snack of popcorn or ice cream. Overnight oats or hot oatmeal never looked so good. Sprinkle a little brown sugar and chopped nuts on top and voila! It looks far more gourmet than you'd ever expect. Something about food in a beautiful handmade bowl makes taste even better.
As it turns out, it's also a fantastic succulent planter!
Each bowl is completely unique. If you order multiples at once, we'll sort through the bowls on hand to choose the ones that best nest and stack together so they fit comfortably in your cupboard without taking up too much space.
As always, our pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe, but I always recommend hand washing over putting it into a dishwasher just because the banging around that happens during the wash cycle can cause chips on all your favorite dinnerware. If you choose to put it in the dishwasher, just make sure the lip isn't pressed against something that will cause a chip when it starts vibrating and shaking from the water pressure.
You can shop with ease knowing we have $5 flat rate shipping on your entire order in the continental United States. All other orders will be calculated based on actual cost. We don't make a profit on shipping, so you can rest assured knowing our first priority is keeping it real.

The Loft Mug will become your daily go-to for everything from your morning coffee to your evening tea. Curl up and cuddle this generously sized mug while you contemplate the current state of affairs, or even better, while daydreaming of a time the world returns to some sense of normalcy.
We want to feed people! It's one of our missions to help improve food security in our neighborhoods. Each month we will pay forward $1 from the sale of every Loft Mug to a local food bank or school lunch program.
Each mug is handmade in our Pottery studio in Indianapolis, Indiana. Up to eight artisans are involved in the making of each ceramic mug. We put our passion and dedication for slow living into every step of the process.
Holds approximately 16 ounces of coffee, tea, water, juice, soup, mac n cheese, wine, frosty cold beer, kombucha, miso or whatever else you might want to put in it.
The signature handle fits comfortably in your hand. Your fingers will nestle into each divot creating a comfortable rhythm of our fingers and yours. We may not be able to shake hands right now, but we can still connect through something as simple as a mug handle.
All our pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe (with the exception of the rare occurence when we put some gold luster on something. We've all microwaved something metal in our lives, right? Just to see what happens? No? Just me? I don't buy it).
As always we offer $5 flat rate shipping on your entire order shipped within the continental United States.
