“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 purchased a berry bowl after seeing one at my sister-in-laws house. Attractive, well made pottery bowl that holds cherry tomatoes perfectly. Since tomatoes are supposed to be stored at room temperature rather than in the refrigerator, this berry bowl if perfect and looks great on my kitchen counter. I liked mine so much that I purchased two more for gifts.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Berry Buddy:

            This gift was perfect! This was my first holiday with my boyfriend's family and I wanted to bring something for his parents. I didn't want to go overboard and wanted to keep it practical. They love having family and friends over and always have food on the table to pick at - including fresh berries! However, they never had any proper serving dishes for them - if you put them in a bowl, they might get mushy on the bottom and if you leave them in the strainer, it doesn't look very pretty. This bowl was the perfect fix for this! The color really sets off the red and blues of the berries, they don't have to sit in any water since it drains off, and it's small enough that it doesn't take up a ton of room. It is incredibly thick and durable as well. As soon as they opened the gift, his mother brought it right into the kitchen and switched out the dish her fruit was sitting in with the Berry Bowl. It has been out on their counter every time since I've come back and my boyfriend said they rave about the ingenuity of this gift. Great gift if you're looking for something simple, pretty, and practical.

                I'd been looking for something like this for a long time. This is the perfect size for family use and the best feature is the attached bottom to the strainer. Also love that it's pottery and very well made. I would have definitely given it 5 stars for the product but it is a bit pricey so I gave it 4 stars for that reason.

                      So the product itself is easy to use and simple enough. It is attractive in terms of design and frankly a unique concept. It's fun for the kitchen that has a lot of stuff, but wants that one more thing to make your kitchen just a little different.
