Small Berry Bowl

One-piece berry bowl
by DirtKicker Pottery

I think of berry bowls as mostly a summer item, but I've had this attached base design in my head for a couple days and I just had to make it. I do love how it turned out. 

This cutie was thrown with 1 pound of clay.   It's one piece and has drain holes near the base of the bowl.  I threw it kind of thin, so it's actually pretty good size.  It should fit a container of blueberries or raspberries.

Heart Shaped Nesting Bowls

Country Heart Nesting Bowls
by DirtKicker Pottery

Is food really the way to a man's heart?   Of course it is.    No matter how crappy of a day my husband might have, making him a really yummy dinner can turn his frown upside-down. 

These heart nesting bowls turned out very sweet and they stack nicely.  I must have taken 50 photos of them.  I just get carried away with lighting and staging.   It's a good thing I'm not a photographer, I would drive my self nuts.

Nesting bowls will be listed in my Etsy Shop within a day or so.   I hope you will stop by and take a look :)

Covered Butter Dishes by DirtKicker Pottery

I always seem to make the things that I really need.. but after I'm finished making the item, I feel compelled to sell it, and then I'm left without the thing that I really needed. 

These covered butter dishes are handbuilt.  Not something that I can just whip together really quick.  They take time to make and time and pampering to dry straight and without warping.

I will be including covered butter dishes as a regular item in my DirtKicker Pottery Etsy Shop.  If I'm running low on stock, don't worry, I will have more in my next firing.
