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.

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

“Being an artist is as much a part of my identity as being female. I really can't imagine a life where I am not creating.”

Tasha McKelvey likes to get personal. "My greatest hope for my work is that it lives in the homes and hearts of the owners as a reminder of the most special moments in their lives," she says. Her handcrafted, often personalized ceramics are born of specific moments in her life, too. Designs tend to arise from places that recall times of yore—picture books from her childhood, or the Christmas markets of northern Europe she’s visited. Her wonder, in turn, produces more. "I love when families with small children receive a piece of my pottery that features little birds, gnomes, or such and the kids give them names," she says. "It's just so precious.”

    Comments about BIRDIE MINI DISH:

    This is an adroable little bird dish. It's very well made and looks great sitting on my dresser. The dish is very small so I don't actually put any trinkets in it. I think it's better as a cute decor item. This would make a great gift for a bird lover.

      Another review said this was smaller than they thought so I knew it would be small just not that small. It's about the size of a half dollar but it is still really cute. The person I bought it for loves birds so this was still a great gift.

      This is a very cute little item. I must say it looked better in the catalog. I also think it's a little overpriced for what it is. The friend I gave it to did like it though.

            This dish could hold one or two rings. I actually use it every morning to put my husband's prescription meds in. It looks cute beside his breakfast plate.

                This is a very cute dish. It is quite small but perfect for over night storage of rings or keeping rings in one place during dishes, gardening etc. It looks just like the picture. One thing to note is that the bottom is not glazed. I will probably add felt or rubber pads to the bottom to prevent scratches on the night stand.
