The Yum of its Parts

Add a little kick to your Tex-Mex with this spicy trio of salsa dishes. Artist Melanie Mckenney has deconstructed salsa into three key ingredients: zesty purple and white onions, and a juicy red tomato. She created these sturdy, earthenware bowls by forming slip-cast molds from actual vegetables, and has decorated each one with vibrant, non-toxic and food-safe glazes. Each piece is full of delicious detail, and they'll be mouthwatering serving bowls for dips, veggies, or taco fixings at your next fiesta. Food safe. Handmade in Tonawanda, New York.

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

Melanie Mckenney

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.
