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. 

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.

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.

Serving a large salad or pasta requires a special bowl. Our handmade ceramic Harvest Bowl is equally at home loaded with your favorite family recipe and ready to serve as it is on the table or counter holding five pounds of apples, your latest garden harvest or with a loaf of bread rising before it goes in the oven.

A kitchen lover's dream bowl also happens to be an interior designer's favorite. The classic white glaze on natural tan clay looks beautiful on the dinner table or the coffee table.

Each bowl is handmade on the pottery wheel by Dusty, one of our resident potters. The clay is intentionally sourced nearby from our favorite female-owned clay maker and the glaze is mixed in our studio. Every step of the process is done by hand. From the time a bowl is just a simple lump of clay to its completion, it will go through the hands of eight artisans. You know that every time you purchase pottery from Gravesco Pottery that you're supporting artisans right here in Indianapolis and suppliers in the Midwest.

Measures approximately 11" diameter and 4" high.

Microwave and dishwasher safe.

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!

Nag Champa is that amazing rich scent often found in incense from India. It has a sandalwood* base note and floral top note that meld together to create an energetically calming aroma. When I need to unwind, slow down, release the stress of the day I'll reach for the Nag Champa handmade soap and let the gentle fragrance bring me back to a place of inner relaxation. 

Handmade soap is always a wonderful gift, stocking stuffer if you're planning ahead for the holidays, or treat for your coworkers who are probably as tired of harsh detergent as you are.

We love our handmade cold press soaps for frequent hand washing without harsh chemicals but also use it in the tub for all over. I've even enjoyed it as a shampoo on my short hair.

If you haven't used handmade cold process soap before, you're in for a treat. If handmade soaps are old hat for you, get ready for a bar that is gently cleansing and filled with moisturizers.

For longest lasting results, keep your bar stored on a draining soap dish or wire rack so it completely dries out between uses. I like to cut each bar in half and keep one half in the linen cupboard to lightly scent my towels and keep it dry until I'm ready to use it.

Each hand cut bar is packed in a pure cotton muslin bag with a drawstring then wrapped with our label printed on French Paper Company paper. We love French Paper Company because they've been producing high quality paper for generations using hydro power close by in Niles, Michigan. Click here to learn more about their environmentally conscious paper production and how they power the whole town!

3.5" x 2.25" x 1" bars weigh 4-4.5 oz on average.

Handmade for Gravesco Pottery in the United States using premium ingredients.

Ingredients: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Aqua, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance. 

Please note that due to the handmade nature of this soap, color shades and swirl styles may slightly vary. Each loaf and bar is unique!

(*note - this is scented with a premium pthalate free perfume grade fragrance oil. It is important to us that none of our ingredients are acquired through harmful practices).

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.

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. 

Each handmade ceramic palo santo kit includes three sticks of ethically sourced palo santo, a small bag of pure silica sand for the center of the bowl for extinguishing your palo santo and helping to hold it in place more securely and one of my favorite palo santo cleansing rituals courtesy of Deb Swingholm at Flowering Moon - an expert in ancient Goddess symbolism, space clearing master and educator.

......................................

Now, if you’re as curious as I was about the ethics of palo santo...

There is so much information floating around about Palo Santo, some of which is accurate and much that is not at all based in truth. In an intentional effort to respect the holy aspect of palo santo and to continue our passion for sourcing materials with integrity the Palo Santo sticks we offer are ONLY sourced from a well-reputed individual source that submits to certification and auditing to confirm proper licensing for harvest, approved harvesting methods, respect for the holy wood, and partnerships with native communities to encourage growth and success for all involved. From our supplier, “For us, the value of environmentally conscious forestry practices & the humane treatment of our native community partners far outweigh the value of the dollar.” If you’d like to learn more you can find more information direct from our source here.

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.

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.

Skulls are always in season in our household. Settle in for a quiet moment, candles lit, bathroom door locked, favorite music playing softly, hot tea in your handmade skull mug, a good book and as you finish filling the tub with steaming water drop in the skull bath bomb. Watch it fizzle and spread the mysterious color, release the sweet fragrance of eucalyptus and spearmint then slide into that warm water. Take a few deep breaths and relax. Let your shoulders drop. Roll your head side to side and relieve that tension. 

Sip you tea, wine or whatever and enjoy the luxurious pampering.

I personally like to finish this relaxing soak with an all over massage with a bar of our Spearmint & Rosemary handmade soap as the water starts to cool.

In my tests the bath bomb creates a beautiful purple water that drains cleanly. There was no purple left behind. After a quick wipe down, like I do after every bath, the tub is spotless.  For reference, the tubs in our loft are steel coated with porcelain enamel. There is a small patch spot that I was worried may stain but it has not. This bath bomb is a true luxury.

5oz = 2.25" Diameter  ships shrink wrapped to keep it dry so it doesn't fizz out from humidity. Packaged in a simple organic cotton muslin bag perfect for gift giving.  I love to repurpose the muslin bags by filling them with dried herbs to use later as a bath tea.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Epsom Salt, Coconut Oil, Phthalate-Free Fragrance, Aqua, Polysorbate 80, FD&C Colorant.

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!

There is something so special about loading a brush with glaze, smacking it onto the pot in just the right spot and dragging it along the surface to leave a one of a kind mark. The energy and abandon of the split second is made permanent in the kiln, enduring as long as the pottery lasts. There is no second chance. This can’t be fixed if the stroke is messed up. It takes confidence, practice and a willingness to celebrate whatever happens.

Each Brushstroke handmade pottery travel mug holds approximately 8-10 ounces of your favorite beverage. The 100% silicone lid is a snug fit and if you’d like some help learning how to get it to fit effortlessly pop over to my IGTV for a quick video (HERE).

Sometimes simple really is the best choice. As much as we love lush imagery and layers of texture, there is nothing quite like a simple white tumbler that can become an accessory to your entire day.

It took years to find the exact method for fitting a 100% pure silicone travel lid successfully. It’s a tight fit that will prevent leaks and if you’d like to see how they fit, you can check it out on my IGTV where I do a little tutorial video of how to put the lids on these babies to keep your coffee in your ceramic tumbler and not on your favorite tshirt.

Each wheel thrown travel tumbler is made with our favorite tan speckled clay and glazed with a classic white glaze that will go with everything for years to come.

Just in case you’re concerned, we have to say we haven’t yet found a cupholder it won’t fit in.

The small Modern Traveler holds approximately 10 oz of your favorite hot or cold beverage.

The Large Modern Traveler holds approximately 12-13 oz of your favorite hot or cold beverage.

If you like your drink super hot, you may want to add a silicone heat resistant band for $2. I personally don’t drink my coffee quite that hot but am aware plenty people do and I don’t want you to burn your hands if that’s you.

A little green to perk up your home or office that is low maintenance is always a win. Since I was a kid I was fascinated by air plants and to be honest, in nearly fifty years of living that just hasn't changed.

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.
