Fresh Picked

Artist Melanie Mckenney crafts this handmade, earthenware cup to be sweetly appealing. She uses an actual apple to form her mold, squeezing out every detail of lifelike texture and shape. She uses non-toxic glazes to create the candy-red exterior, and creamy white interior with its hand-brushed seeds. Sure to be loved by teachers, gardeners and nature-lovers, it invites you to savor life to the core as you sip your cider, tea or coffee. Handmade in Tonawanda, New York.

Sold individually.

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.
