“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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Berry Buddy:

    This eases the breakfast routine. I easily toss a handful of berries into this attractive bowl that I keep next to the sink. No more dripping water across my kitchen. I've had so much positive feedback on it that I have now gifted it several times.

      This was the perfect gift! My sister will love it! Also great for the person who has it all! Rinse your berries or cherry tomatoes, drain and can sit on the counter or in the frig. I may have to get more of these! Thank you!

                I was impressed from the moment the package arrived. Since it was a pottery type piece, I had been concerned about packing. No need. It arrived snugly burrowed into a bank of Styrafoam peanuts inside a box which was inside another box surrounded with fat bubble wrap. They could have safely dropped off a 4 story building! It is beautiful and I know my friend will make good use of it.

                  MY HUSBAND LOVES BERRIES, MOSTLY BLUEBERRIES AND GRAPE TOMATOES. HE'S CONSTANTLY WASHING THEM IN THE PLASTIC CONTAINERS THEY COME IN AND LEAVING A WATERY MESS ON A SOGGY PAPER TOWEL IN THE FRIDGE. THIS LOVELY "PIECE OF ART" SOLVED EVERYTHING. HE LOVES IT AND NO MORE MESSES. WHEN NOT IN USE IT SITS OUT AND ADMIRED UNTIL NEEDED. TOO PRETTY TO STORE AWAY IN A CABINET. MAKES A GREAT GIFT.
