  • Batik Centerpiece Tray | Classic White  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop

    The Classic White Batik Centerpiece Tray is the perfect statement piece for your home or kitchen. Place it on your coffee table to wrangle your collection of remotes or serve up some dishes in the kitchen. Line up some ruby red apples, stack cheesy garlic bread for spaghetti dinner, or load it up with freshly glazed donuts.

     

    Made of high fire stoneware for durability. It’s an elegant touch to your table, entertaining, or everyday use.

    Gravesco Pottery pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe! I personally prefer to hand wash my pottery. However, if you choose to use the dishwasher, I recommend placing your plate in the top rack or  where it won't vibrate or bang against other dishes.

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

    Microwave and dishwasher safe. Personally, I prefer to hand wash my pottery as things knock around quite a bit in the dishwasher. However, if you choose to use the dishwasher, your pottery will last much longer if you're careful to place it where it won't vibrate or bang against other dishes.

  • Batik Mug for Soup or Latte | Classic White Glaze  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery | Mug
    Quick shop

    The Classic White Batik Mug is perfect for your favorite soup or latte. I've even enjoyed using it for my morning bowl of age inappropriate cereal. You'd think at age 46 I'd be over Lucky Charms, but alas, it's just not true. I love 'em.

That's just my personal preference, though, and you're welcome to clean your new pottery however you prefer!

    The wide handle is stamped with an antique batik stamp for texture which makes it easier to grip. The width of the handle makes it easy to hold even when completely full to the rim.

    Each mug is handmade, first thrown on the wheel before the addition of the stamped handle. The beauty of handmade is each has its perfect imperfections!

  • Custom House Numbers | Sgraffito hand carved ceramic by Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop

    Every number is completely unique. 

    I begin with a unique slab of stoneware clay, coat it with a black slip (that’s just really wet clay with colorants added) then freehand carve the numbers revealing the white clay beneath. Once each tile is dried completely it is bisque fired, clear glazed, then fired a second time. 

    A large hole can be cut into the top to hang it as I have, or a smaller hole if you’d prefer to hang it on a small nail or screw. 

    Each number is random in size with an average width of approximately 4”. Length varies from 6” to 12”.

    The high fire stoneware is durable enough to hang outdoors year round.

    Please allow 6-12 weeks for your custom address numbers. 

    This listing is for a single number. Please choose as many numbers as you require. Also, please add a note at checkout to let me know which numbers to carve for you.

  • Locally Foraged Tea Gift Set with Jason Michael Thomas | Urban Awareness Gardens Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery | JMT
    Quick shop

    Walking through the wild lands with Hugo, his trusted furry sidekick, Jason Michael Thomas of Urban Awareness Gardens forages delicious, wild crafted teas for your health and pleasure.

    Imagine settling in your favorite cozy spot with a handmade mug filled with your new favorite caffeine-free herbal tea while you let the stresses of the day drift away.

    Each tea jar is handmade by Rebecca Graves and filled with delicious foraged tea from Jason Michael Thomas. Choose from white mulberry, goldenrod or nettle. Each tea jar holds enough loose tea for 4-6 pots of tea. If you don't have a tea pot with a strainer and would like unbleached paper tea bags to fill yourself, drop a note when you check out and we will add a few to your package.

    Because the tea is foraged and not farmed, there is a limited supply available. 

    Are you wondering what these teas taste like? We've got you covered:

    • Goldenrod Tea - wait to steep when the water has cooled from boiling about 3-5 minutes for a smoother flavour. Goldenrod Tea is a gorgeous soft golden green color and tastes herbal with a hint of floral. It's light and fresh on its own or wonderful with a wee bit of honey or citrus.
    • Nettle Tea - this lovely green leafy tea tastes a bit nutty like a pan roasted green tea. We love the Nettle Tea alone, without honey, but it would also be delicious with honey or a hint of vanilla.
    • White Mulberry Tea - oven roasted to bring out the flavor, the White Mulberry Tea is similar to the flavour of an oolong tea. It is also delightful steeped on its own or add a touch of honey to sweeten it slightly.

     

    The gift set includes a handmade mug and coordinated handmade tea jar with natural cork lid filled with Jason's delicious tea. **Jason's favorite tea pot is not included**

    Please allow us to choose the glaze color of the handmade mug to match the handmade jar your tea will be packaged in. It's always so much more fun to be surprised! 

    Steeping instructions and more information about the wellness benefits of your tea will be included with shipping.

  • SALE We Had Sex In This Room Hand Carved Ceramic Wall Tile by Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop
    On sale

     

    We had sex in this room. 

    Amuse your friends and horrify your family by hanging this classic anywhere in your house. You can go for the expected and hang it in the guest bedroom or my favorite, hang it in the kitchen, the den, the foyer, or anywhere else you may have christened with sexual joy at some point.

    Another terrific option is to give it as a hostess gift. You know, just discreetly leave it somewhere in your host's home and see if they ever fess up to having found it. Visiting your parents or grown children? Leave it in the guest room as a thank you gift when you depart. There are so many options to have wicked good fun with it.

    Each wall tile is handmade using a high fire white stoneware on my pottery wheel then hand carved using the sgraffito method before being glazed and fired. It's all a lot more involved than that, but this is sort of the gist of it. Each one is completely free-hand carved, no stamps, no sketching, no planning. I just dig in and go.

    The back of the tile is curved inward allowing it to be easily hung on a simple nail or screw. It looks like it is floating on the wall creating an interesting level of dimension.

    Measures approximately 5" diameter but honestly, that is a guess because I am typing this at home in my pajamas and can't read my own hand written notes on the dimensions. 

    As always, all orders in the continental US are shipped at a flat rate of $5 because you deserve it! So go ahead and shop to your heart's content. It's only going to be $5.

  • Stop Trying To Control Me Hand Carved Ceramic Wall Tile by Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop
    On sale

    This one is inspired by my step-brother and his wife. They both have a great sense of humor. At a holiday function, she asked (or was it told?) him to get something from the kitchen. His immediate response to the request was, "Stop trying to control me!" and then they both bust up laughing. 

    It's sort of become a mantra when I find myself in a situation where I feel like someone else is trying to control my actions, the outcome, or micro-managing me. With a people-pleaser attitude it's easy to fall into the trap of allowing someone else to control your narrative. 

    You can hang this on your wall as a reminder to say no when someone tries to control you or as a warning to anyone who would dare try.

    The stop trying to control me wall tile is handmade using a high fire white stoneware on my pottery wheel then hand carved using the sgraffito method before being glazed and fired. It's all a lot more involved than that, but this is sort of the gist of it. Each one is completely free-hand carved, no stamps, no sketching, no planning. I just dig in and go.

    The back of the tile is curved inward allowing it to be easily hung on a simple nail or screw. It looks like it is floating on the wall creating an interesting level of dimension.

    Measures approximately 5.5" diameter but honestly, that is a guess because I am typing this at home in my pajamas and can't read my own hand written notes on the dimensions.

  • Symbols of the Sacred Feminine Bowl Carving Workshop with Rebecca Graves Prowse and Deb Swingholm  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop

    Sacred Feminine Workshop with Deb Swingholm Flowering Moon and Rebecca Prowse of Gravesco Pottery in Indianapolis

    Symbols of the Sacred Feminine

    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 a carved bowl. Later, you can use your bowl 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: Saturday August 18th, 1pm - 4:30 pm

    Workshop Leaders:

    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 a wheel thrown bowl that she's made in advance for just this purpose.

    Location:
    Gravesco Pottery
    Ruckus Micro-Manufacturing  
    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 and wine will be available.
