A Tweet Treat

Inspired by the birds, gardens and woodland creatures that filled her childhood, Tasha McKelvey created these adorable stoneware dishes that stole the show at UncommonGoods' Ceramics Challenge. Each palm-sized dish is hand-pressed with a weathered, century-old barn door to give it a faux bois texture, imitating the distinct grain of aged wood. Bisque fired pieces are then glazed and high-fired in an electric kiln. Although these petite dishes are prefect for holding rings and other small jewelry, they also provide a sweet spot to rest your spoon after stirring your morning coffee. Made in the USA.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Tasha McKelvey

Tasha McKelvey's clay work is intended to be useful - this is art that is meant to be touched. In the past everything we used in the home was made by hand. Today our homes are filled with mass-produced stuff. When we seek out handmade art we make our surroundings a little more human.

Tasha throws on the potter's wheel or uses slabs of clay to hand-build her clay forms. Each piece is glazed by hand and fired in an electric kiln. Over the past few years Tasha's been making pottery and ceramic jewelry inspired by the gardens, forests and the wooden toys of her childhood. She's incorporated lots of birds, plants and woodland creatures into her designs.

Studying art and ceramics at university, Tasha also gained practical experience from working alongside professional potters and now has 20 years of experience working with clay. collection
