"It's important to me that what I make gets used in everyday life, and that each pot speaks to its new owner with every use," says Patricia Bridges. Her formal training comes from her early days spent with the League of New Hampshire craftsmen and taking workshops with well-respected potters. As a young apprentice for a studio potter in western Massachusetts, Patricia gained skills and appreciation for good functionality and design in clay. Creating art with an emphasis on functional forms has always been a driving force in her work. Her portfolio encompasses serving pieces, platters, lamps, and artisan yarn bowls. An avid knitter who has personally tested her own designs, her yarn bowls have been coveted by knitters around the world and have been featured in Vogue Knitting.

Comments about UncommonGoods Strike It Up Match Striker:

The match hat is adorable! It sits well on the mantle of the fireplace and holds the fireplace key and matches. I bought it for my mother because she's always losing the matchbox and hates using lighters because it's difficult to bend over. The downside is that my mother, myself, my two sisters, and various relatives that have been to our home have been unable to strike a match with it! It rubs the coating off the match head and usually breaks them. One uncle was able to catch it, but he can also light a match on his jeans or under his shoe, and said that it was a 'firm' light. Certainly not easy to use for the average person! Regardless of its difficulty, we cut a strip from a matchbox to tuck inside and it's a nice decor piece that does hold matches for the fireplace.
