“When I'm stuck creatively, I walk away from whatever it is I'm trying to do. It all usually becomes clear on my runs in the Santa Ynez Valley hills where I live and work.”

Ellen Bartfeld describes her practice in simple terms: “Each of my bowls is made with love.” And inspiration often comes from the customers themselves. “They might have requests,” says the glass artist, who crafts her wares in California’s Santa Ynez Valley, adorning them with symbolic objects. “I might be asked to find charms that are part of a wedding or bridesmaid theme. Every suggestion is a creative opportunity.” Once, Ellen created pieces for four sisters, using jewelry pieces from their late mother. “They were reminded of their mother every time they used their bowls,” she says. Even when her pieces are not personalized, they are still personal. Says Ellen, “I envision them on a dresser or by the bed, holding objects that have a special meaning.”

        Comments about UncommonGoods Birth Month Mini Dish:

        After reading the reviews, I was most excited about this item than I was about all the other items I had in my order, which, by the way, is now 5 shipments worth. I was disappointed with the packaging...just a plain white box closed with white tape. So many of the other items I have purchased through Uncommon Goods have been beautifully packaged, which is part of the joy of the gift. Then, I was so disappointed by the dish itself. It looks just like a plain red dish with a few cheap beads strung above it. This was quite a lot of money for such a tiny, plain dish. I called Uncommon Goods over a week ago, and I was supposed to have received a return label in the mail and a follow up label on my email in case I didn't get the one in the mail. I have not received either one. The jewelry dish still sits on my counter in its box, waiting its return to Uncommon Goods.

          I was very impressed with this product. I purchased 5 (one for each of the girl's birthday color). It is just the right size to keep their rings in or any other jewelry.

          The package came with the wired beads all crooked. I was so surprised by the smallness of the bowl. Major disappointment.

            I have looked at this product infinite times on your website and finally bought one. However, I was disappointed when I received it. It looks beautiful on the website but in reality is smaller than I imagined and the beads around the side look chintzy. I am not going to gift it to my friend as I had originally planned. It just isnt as nice as I thought it would be!

            Service and delivery comments:

            Prompt delivery.

              I bought two of these, one for my Mom and one for my sister. They are really pretty and just right for holding rings and earrings by the bedside or in the bathroom.

                  I was given one for my birthday. I use it for my "everyday" rings & watch. A nice little catch all to keep things neat. I bought several to give as gifts.
