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.”

      I purchased this little dish to hold my earrings when I remove them at bedtime. I thought it was a cute dish when I ordered it but it is even nicer than expected! A good size for earrings or a couple of rings.

        Comments about BIRDIE MINI DISH:

        I bought this as a little bonus wedding gift to accompany a registry item. It was so adorable, I almost kept it for myself. I didn't read anything about dimensions before I bought it, so it was smaller than I expected for the price. It is only big enough to hold maybe two rings. Nevertheless, it is very pretty and I plan to buy another to keep in my garden window.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The package arrived quickly, about 2-3 days after I placed the order with standard shipping. It was actually faster than I expected and was packaged securely.

            Comments about BIRDIE MINI DISH:

            This was a gift to a friend who was recently married. Since she often takes her ring off to wash her hands, I thought this would be perfect!
            She thought it was adorable and said it would work extact as I intended.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I paid for 3-5 day shipping, but the box arrived the next day. I can't help but wonder how fast it would have arrived if I'd stuck with regular shipping (and saved myself some money).

                though art does not require a purpose, this little birdie dish is a perfect spot for rings to rest. we have it on the windowsill behind the kitchen sink.

                  This birdie mini dish is a happy little work of art for display. If I didn't already have a place for my wedding ring, it would go here, but since I do, there isn't much else it is useful for. It just makes me smile when I see it.

                    A great gift for someone who has everything!
