“Each pot requires the same care and attention, whether you're making one or a hundred...and I try to be conscious that this pot's going to be part of someone's life.”

“There’s a fine line between a rut and a groove,” potter Brian Kunkelman likes to say. This sentiment underscores the delicate balance required to hand-throw his designs with the right mix of consistency and hand-crafted variation that makes each piece one-of-a-kind. Brian is a potter who seems to go with the flow, a metaphor that runs through his studio and craft—from the water that flows through the cultivated pond outside his studio window, to the variety of music that flows through his speakers (equidistant from his potter’s wheel), and the meditative motion of working with stoneware clay. Using little more than his hands and his trusty, powered foot wheel, he deftly coaxes clay into clever bowls that meld organic elegance with utility.

      I love grapes and cherries, and now I can use this beautiful ceramic strainer to wash the fruit and then leave it on the counter for everyone to enjoy. This strainer allows the fruit to drain, but the fruit doesn't sit in water.

        I love how it washes and drains the fruit, so I don't have to find a plate to put my colander on. My mom loved the card telling about the artist, and the glaze on the pottery.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Berry Buddy:

              My wife was using an ugly, metal colander for the smaller items in our garden; cherry tomatoes, strawberries, snap peas, etc. I saw the Berry Buddy in your catalog and it was a lightbulb above the head moment. She is hard to please and I can honestly say this is her favorite birthday gift in 26 years of marriage. I got two gold stars and the rest is private.

              Perfecto.

                    I gave this to my mom for her birthday. She was so happy and also happy about it matching a previous gift that was a mixing bowl from the same artist. I love that uncommon goods works with artists and being able to give multiple gifts from the same artist is a possibility.

                        I'm not exaggerating when I say we're all eating more fruit since we got the berry buddy. It's so pretty I leave it out on the counter and so convenient the kids are opting for strawberries for a snack. I'm definitely getting more as gifts for friends.
