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.

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.

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. collection

                          Ms. McKelvey created a beautiful work of art with this piece. I didn't realize how long it would take to make, and I ordered it late; but it came right on time as promised. Before packing, I added a bag of love tokens (sold on this site)to the bowl. The bride and groom loved it. It's a gift that I hope will bring great memories for a long time.

                                It's kind of small for the price but we'll worth the price. She does an amazing job with details and making sure it's an original piece of work.

                                  This gift was significant to the bride and groom who are both bird lovers.
                                  I chose to have the two birds painted blue, as this was blue birds have sentimental significance to them. When the bowl arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the diameter and weight. It was larger than I had imagined yet had perfect proportions.

                                      The brown color on the bowl is very poor quality.
                                      There are white streaks covering the bowl, inside and out. Bird sitting on edge do not line up with the feet painted on the bowl. I am very disappointed and unhappy that this product cannot be returned. I am embarrassed to give this as a wedding gift.
