Grilled cheese and a handful of chips, a giant slice of chocolate cake, a small healthy salad, a crusty piece of bread to go along with dinner or a few appetizers at your next party. Whatever you decide to use them for, we're sure you'll be reaching for the Everyday Sandwich + Dessert Plate as often as we do.

Measures approximately 6-7" diameter. Each plate is completely handmade and individually unique. 

Made of stoneware for durability. Perfect for entertaining, every day use or even restaurant ware.

Microwave and dishwasher safe, though, I do recommend hand washing since things bang around quite a bit in the dishwasher. If you choose to use the dishwasher anyway, your cup will last much longer if you're careful to place it where it won't vibrate or bang against other dishes.

Each piece of pottery is carefully wrapped and packed to ensure safe delivery.

Just as the name says, this is our favorite bowl. You know the one. The bowl you reach for when you want ice cream after a bad day and you’re feeling fancy enough to put it in a bowl. It’s the handmade bowl you want every time you post photos of the salad you made on the Gram. When people are over for drinks (in the back yard socially distanced), you pull them out and fill them with cherry tomatoes, olives, hummus and nuts. Our favorite bowl is the one you’ll grab for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, entertaining and whatever else you need a bowl for.

Slow down. Set aside time to indulge your senses. Even the mundane becomes extraordinary when you add handmade pottery.

The single serving bowl measures approximately 2.25” high and 5.5” diameter and holds enough cereal to exceed the recommended serving size considerably. 

Our favorite handmade ceramic bowls are microwave and dishwasher safe. If you choose to pop them in the dishwasher, just make sure the lips are not touching other dishes. They’ll make it through just fine, but like any ceramic or glass, when the dishwasher starts flinging water everywhere it’s easy to chip a lip where they vibrate against each other.  

As always we offer $5 flat rate shipping on your entire order within the continental United States.

The Gavrinis inspired hand carved ritual bowl is going to add a special meaning to your personal 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 ritual bowl with palo santo, sage, sweetgrass, resin, incense or any of your favorite clearing 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. 

One of my favorite sage bundles 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. Click here to purchase sage bundles from Flowering Moon. If you prefer white sage, you can purchase our ethically sourced White Sage from Juniper Ridge here.

Now for the exciting stuff! This is how the bowl came into being...

When my good friend, Deb 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.

Simple and functional handmade pottery is where my love of ceramics began. When something as simple as setting a dirty spoon down onto a spoon rest to keep the stovetop clean can bring pleasure, life is good. The small pleasures that provide joy in the mundane make life meaningful for me. 

The Gravesco Pottery handmade ceramic spoon rest is easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher. If something is seriously stuck on just add a bit of water and pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds to loosen it then wipe clean.

The Every Day Tumbler Gravesco Pottery The Every Day Tumbler Gravesco Pottery
Sale
$ 50.00 $ 72.00

Reaching into the cupboard for a tumbler for that first glass of water or settling in after a long day with a frosty adult beverage, the Every Day handmade pottery tumbler is the one we reach for literally every day.

Every retail sale of The Every Day Tumbler helps a family in need in the Indianapolis area. We will pay forward $1 from the sale of each tumbler to a local food bank or children's lunch program in the greater Indianapolis area. Food security is an important part of our mission at Gravesco Pottery. Nothing makes us feel better than making pottery and making sure families in our neighborhoods have access to healthy foods.

Measuring in at approximately 14 ounces, it's more than just another ceramic cup. Each cup is handmade on the potter's wheel in our studio in Indianapolis. The clay is sourced from our favorite female-owned clay company just a hop skip and a jump away in Lexington, Kentucky. We mix the glaze in-house and fire each tumbler twice in our electric kilns.

Every detail has been considered. The width is comfortable for any adult hand, large or small. The base is narrower than the top, but still wide enough that it's going to sit securely without worrying about tipping it over. The general feel is that of a timeless pint glass and the lip is ever so slightly narrower than the rest of the cup so it's a dripless sip.

We love what we do and we hope you love your new Every Day Tumbler as it becomes a part of your daily life.

Microwave safe and dishwasher safe. During the hot summer months we also love to keep a couple in the fridge or freezer for a frosty adult beverage.

We try to keep these popular tumblers in stock, but if they're not, please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery as they are completely handmade and do take a bit of time.

Once upon a time I found this amazing rock by the shore of Lake Erie over in Pennsylvania that had a perfect divot in the top. It looked almost like a donut and I kept an air plant in the divot. In one of the many moves over the years it was misplaced but I've never forgotten about it. When designing the pod planter that rock came to mind and a new variation of the shape was hatched.

The pod planter is just a li'l thing. It measures approximately 2" wide and about an inch high. It's just the right size for the air plant that comes with it or for a small succulent to make a corner of your home just a little brighter.

Like everything we do at Gravesco, our air plants are intentionally and ethically sourced. All of our air plants are sustainable farmed in CITES-certified nurseries. Our supplier also gives $1 from every sale to Pencils of Promise which we think is pretty cool.

AIR PLANT CARE from our supplier:

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.

LIGHT

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.

WATER

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.

TEMPERATURE

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.

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.

Opening a drawer to the gentle scent of lavender always makes me smile. I keep a small sachet of lavender in each suitcase when it is in storage, in my knitting basket, and when I have a headache I put one on the nightstand to soothe my senses.

The 3x4” unbleached cotton bags are half filled with dried lavender buds to allow room for them to shift and move which releases their beautiful scent.

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.

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.

Gratitude, cleansing, meditating, space clearing and blessings are just a few of the ways that ethically sourced palo santo can improve your spiritual practice and well being. It’s not incense to be lit because you want a room to smell good, it’s so much more. It is sacred, must be ethical and used with clear intent.

With a long history as a holy wood whose smoke is healing it is no surprise that during the stay at home lockdowns during the pandemic many people are turning to palo santo to relieve stress and create a stronger connection with ritual. It is my desire to offer a Palo Santo ritual kit that encourages you to celebrate the sacred nature of this sacred smoke and offers an option for using sacred herbs as something more than just air freshener. 

For decades, palo santo has been my first choice when I bring something new into my home that I want to smudge, when I want to meditate on gratitude or when it is time to do a simple smudge to clear my home. I even use it as an intentional shift from the busy work of running a production studio to sitting at the wheel and making pottery. It creates a threshold between the ordinary and elevated.

Designing a vessel to enhance that ritual was a pleasure. The Palo Santo Burning Bowl will hold the palo santo safely aloft to allow for smudging without the danger of fire from a glowing ember falling onto something unexpected. 

 

If you are interested in the entire Palo Santo Ritual Kit you can find that here.

Ethically sourced with proper intention, our palo santo sticks will bring a sacred element to your smudging, blessing or clearing practice. 

It was of the utmost importance to find palo santo that is ethically sourced with independent certification in collaboration with the indigenous tribes of the area. This is not an endangered variety of palo santo, but it is properly harvested to encourage the longevity of this sacred wood.

Each bundle includes 3 generous sticks in a cotton muslin bag. 

If you’d like to know more about our palo santo source please contact us and I will be happy to share more information or hop over to the Palo Santo Ritual Kit listing HERE for more details.

Our Large Serving Bowl - Serves side salad for 6-8 people or 2 verrrrrry hungry people.

When we have dinner at Jason Michael Thomas's farm to table events in downtown Indianapolis we always go out into the yard to pick greens for the obligatory farm to table Big Ass Yard Salad and this bowl holds enough for the entire crew. It's also terrific for fruit, pasta, and a slew of other dishes to be served family style or just fill it with a few pounds of fruit as a lovely centerpiece.

Made using regional tan clay by hand on the potter's wheel by resident potter, Ryan Vanhoy, here in our studio in Indianapolis, Indiana. Each bowl varies slightly due to the handmade nature. Those variations are to be celebrated as part of the slow making movement as they show evidence of the makers involved in the process.

There has always been something special about cloth napkins. When I was a kid they were considered extra fancy. As an adult I've banished the idea of "save it for special occasions" and use cloth napkins every day. They're easy to wash and I'm not filling trash cans with barely used paper. I have cloth napkins that are over 20 years old that we still use and love.

We chose Meema brand cotton napkins because their company is in keeping with our values. They design kitchen and home textiles with upcycled denim and cotton to be as sustainable as possible. Like us, they believe that every product should be designed for the ideal combination of joy and function with ethics at the center of it all. 

Their napkins and aprons are made with fibers discarded by jeans manufacturers and yarn mills that would be discarded as waste. They give them a second life and their own waste is used by coffee growers as a natural compose, returning to the earth and continuing the cycle. Their manufacturing process uses minimal resources and energy. For every kg of upcycled material, 20,000 liters of water are saved.

It's just another reason to love using cloth napkins.
