Sweetly Refreshing

When life gives lemons to artist Melanie Mckenney, she doesn't make lemonade - she makes adorable little citrus bud vases!

She uses an actual lemon and lime to create these stoneware bud vases, squeezing out every detail of lifelike texture and shape. Each is finished with bright, non-toxic glazes. Use them to display a sprig of herbs or a fresh-picked wild flower, and they're sure to add a special zest to your kitchen counter. Handmade in Tonawanda, New York.

Due to handmade nature of the product, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Melanie Mckenney originally hails from Buffalo, NY. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from nearby Alfred University in 2006, but continued her training through numerous workshops, including study at the Studio Arts Centers International in Florence, Italy. Melanie helped to run a non-profit ceramics program in Lexington, MA, before returning to Buffalo, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.

Melanie finds the inspiration for her functional pottery in nature, and believes that capturing those natural forms in clay evokes a new appreciation for everyday objects. Often taken for granted, fruits and vegetables display a rich variety of shapes, colors, and textures. By casting directly from the actual fruit or vegetable, Melanie is able to capture these in detail. Her line of Vegetabowlsc has been in production since 2010, and she hopes to promote local farming, healthy eating, and an appreciation for handmade housewares.
