Everyday rituals can mean anything from a mug of delicious tea and a decadent truffle every evening to meditating with a cone of incense burning in a tiny dish.

After years of throwing all my pots on a wheel because I didn’t have the space for slab work and hand building I’m starting to rediscover the joy of hand building and the rustic elements it brings to functional ware.
The Wobble Bowls are making a fresh appearance on the website again. They small bowls are just the right size for all sorts of dishes from ice cream to pasta, salad and soup or plating beautiful food like Jason Michael Thomas and the larger bowl is perfect for serving 2-6 people a main dish or side dish. It’s also lovely as a centerpiece filled with fruit.
If your food is humble or glorious it will feel special. One of my favorite things about slow living and daily rituals is that even the mundane becomes elevated when you take the time to enjoy the entire experience.

Don’t forget, we have $5 flat rate shipping on all orders shipped in the continental United States!
The wobble bowls measure approximately 6” diameter and 2” high. The Wobble Serving Bowl measures approximately 11” diameter and 3.5” high. Each one is completely unique and shows the marks of the maker’s hands, delightful glaze variations and is an individual work of art.
Snuggled on the sofa in the evening with your new handmade Batik Mug filled with your favorite mac and cheese as you decide whether to catch up on some Netflix or just enjoy some music and read a bit while you gnosh - sounds like a great way to end a hectic day, right?
The Batik Mug was designed to be just the right size and shape for everything from your morning latte to your ramen lunch and evening dinner. We use them more than anything in our cupboard. If you choose to use it for soup and do the quick dash microwave heat up, it’s pretty handy that the batik stamped handle of our stoneware soup mug doesn’t get hot. If you keep yours in the freezer, it’s pretty darn handy for icecream, but I have to tell you, the handle definitely gets cold. It’s kind of nice in August, though.
Farm to Table food enthusiast, chef and urban farmer, Jason Michael Thomas has declared on more than one occasion that this is his favorite piece of pottery.
While I prefer to handwash my favourite pottery rather than let it rattle around in the dishwasher, the Batik Soup Mug is microwave and dishwasher safe. If you do choose to put it in the dishwasher, go with the top shelf and make sure it isn't going to rattle against another item that could potentially cause a chip.
The wide handle is stamped with an antique batik stamp. The texture adds grip while the width makes it easy to hold, even when it’s completely full!
Each mug is wheel thrown then the stamped handle is added. Each one is a little different - that’s the beauty of handmade.
This mug is generously sized to hold a full 12 ounce can of soup with room to spare. This makes it just the right size for soup, mac and cheese, cereal, ice cream, lattes, pasta and anything else you like to eat on the go or snuggled on the sofa.

The City Black Batik Mug will elevate even the simplest of comfort foods - no one will realize that your ramen was made with boiling water, not gourmet! You love gourmet ramen, too? Well, then you’re in luck.
Jason Michael Thomas has said on more than one occasion that this is his favorite mug for serving tea, lattes and soups of all kinds.
The Batik Soup Mug is microwave and dishwasher safe and although I personally prefer to hand washing my favorite pottery, you're welcome to clean your new mug however you'd like! If you do choose to put it in the dishwasher, go with the top shelf and make sure it isn't going to rattle against another item that could potentially cause a chip.
The Batik Mug is comfortable in the hand, even when full to the brim. The wide handle is textured with an antique stamp, adding grip, while the width makes it easy to hold.
Each mug is wheel thrown then the stamped handle is added. Because of the handmade nature of the mug, each one is a little different. That's the beauty of handmade.

Symbols of the Sacred Feminine Bowl Carving Workshop
SUNDAY, June 2nd, 2019 1pm - 3:30pm
(note: the date on the first email was incorrect. The correct date is June 2nd)
There was a time - not so long ago - when humans saw the Divine as a woman. A wise, protective, nourishing Goddess.
All around the world she was honored and today her symbols remain. They are consistent. Recognizable. Powerful and magical.
These symbols form a language - a sacred vocabulary that evokes plants, animals, creation, transformation and all the cycles of the Earth.
Goddess symbols appear in Renaisance paintings, gothic cathedrals and stone grottos. They show up in folk art like weaving, handmade carpets, basketmaking, pottery and other women's crafts.
In this workshop, you'll get to know some of these symbols and find out how they were used. Then you'll work with them to create 2 carved bowls. Later, you can use your bowls for smudging, to hold holy water or to keep your favorite stones or crystals.
This ancient imagery will...
- connect you more deeply with the natural world
- add layers of meaning to your favorite fairy tales and myths
- let you see the Goddess as your ally and guardian
- activate your creativity in new ways
Workshop date: June 2nd 1pm-3:30pm est
Deb Swingholm of Flowering Moon will lead the workshop on the sacred feminine.
Rebecca Prowse of Gravesco Pottery will lead the group through carving their personal symbols into 2 handmade bowls that she's made in advance for just this purpose.
1417 Commerce Ave
Indianapolis, IN 46201
Enter through the glass doors next to the big overhead door with an A. You'll be guided back to Rebecca's Studio where we'll all participate.
The class is limited to 8 participants to ensure a personal experience and time for carving. No previous ceramics experience is necessary. This workshop is open to adults of all skill levels.
Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Expect to get a bit dirty, but nothing you'll be using is likely to permanently stain your clothing.
Bowls will be carved at the workshop then glazed and fired. Finished bowls will be available for pick up 2 weeks after the workshop. All participants will be notified by email when the bowls are available. If you're unable to pick up your bowl in two weeks, that's no problem, we can arrange for delivery and work out the details while you're at the workshop.
Feel free to bring your own beverages or snacks for yourself or to share. Light snacks, iced water, tea and wine will be available.
