JoAnn Stratakos

Much thought and years of experience go into each piece of pottery by JoAnn Stratakos. All pieces are original designs created and produced exclusively by the artist in her studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. They are made of stoneware clay, which has splendid serviceability and resists chipping. Each piece is hand-dipped in glazes that JoAnn has formulated. Hand-dipping requires more time than spraying, but gives each piece subtle variations and its unique character. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete, with your decor and the foods being served. collection

Used old sponges can really stink, but this pretty piece of pottery helps you get the most out of your sponge by allowing it to dry properly. Does JoAnn Stratakos' Stoneware Sponge Holder have your vote?

Love the stoneware, but who uses sponges anymore? They are full of germs!

I don't use sponges anymore...I don't like things on or around my sink.

I think think of other uses for this "sponge holder," which seems to be decorated with an Edelweiss. I think it would much nicer on my desk, holding letters.

I suspect this could hold much more than sponges. Not sure what it would look like... I think I need more views of this product to see it true functionality.

Very nice, functional and attractive. I love the flower motif! Lots of people use sponges every day, but it could be used for other things as well. Best of all, it is hand made by local artists.

Concept is appealing but flower design looks cheap.

I agree with others, would be nice to hold other items like letters or napkins?

Linda

Doesn't appeal to me. I don't keep sponges on my counter.

Wouldn't water drip off the sides? I'd rather it were contained completely.

adding beauty to a chore that can get on your last nerve some evenings is pleasing to the eye and mind.

Pretty accent piece on sink.

Kristin

NO! NO ! NO! One more thing to clean out- like a toothbrush holder. It's going to get gross on the inside and breed bacteria.

Barb

Not for sponges- maybe something else.
