The Bee's Knees.

Featuring smooth ceramic embossed with a delicate illustration of a fluttering honeybee, this artisanal honey pot is sweetness embodied. Each refined piece begins in the hands of Sandra Bonazoli and Jim Dowd in their Massachusetts studio where the sculptors start with a drawing and then create the original form. The finished piece is then molded and hand-cast out of creamy ceramic stoneware by skilled artisans in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The pot's contrasting glazed and natural wood honey dipper is pleasing to the eye and a pleasure to work with as you use it to drizzle this amber treat into tea or onto biscuits. Each vessel is high-fired for durability and is both microwave and dishwasher safe, so clearing out the last of your crock's contents will never turn into a sticky situation. Ceramic handmade by fair-trade artisans in Peru. Honey dipper handmade in Massachusetts.

Sandra Bonazoli and Jim Dowd

At their small studio, artists Jim Dowd and Sandra Bonazoli combine traditional techniques and old-world skills with modern style. Jim and Sandra are inspired by the folk art of many cultures, plants and animals, vintage children's story books, and quirky old tools. Their intention is to bridge the gap between craft and contemporary design by using elements of decoration, craft, and technology, and employing them in new and unexpected contexts.

Jim and Sandra both hold Masters in Fine Art degrees, and their collaborative work has been shown at the American Craft Museum in New York City, and featured in numerous publications. They live in a little Rhode Island town in a cottage.
