Home is Where the Art Is

Hand-sculpted by husband-and-wife team Eric Hendrick and Noelle VanHendrick, this generously sized platter is a piece of functional artwork. Starting with an intense, dark clay body, the artists hand-throw each platter before decorating with slip and finishing with wax resist methods. These hands-on methods of assembly culminate in an elaborately varied surface that is, at once, a touching exhibition of the maker's aesthetic and creative intent, and a tribute to its recipients.

Noelle's hand-carved poem encircles a colorful sketch of the couple surrounded by a heart and beaming sun. Personalize the platter by adding the couple's first names and their anniversary. More than just an attractive piece for display, this platter makes a beautiful backdrop for fruit pieces, cheese wedges, and, since it's microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe, it also servers as an eye-catching centerpiece for your main course. Handmade in Vermont.

Noelle VanHendrick and Eric Hendrick are a husband and wife team who have been creating together since the year 2000. They met in pottery class at West Virginia University and where good friends for a good while. They courted candling wood kilns and playing chess. Now, from their home in southern Vermont, they make it all happen. They homeschool their three sons and create art for the world to enjoy. “It is poetic, I have raised my sons on buckets of love and cups of beautiful…”, says Noelle. “ I intend for it all only to get better and better….” There is an underlying mission to the work. A mission of cultivating world peace beginning at home, in the body, mind, and spirit. Eric and Noelle create and design goods that align with this mission.
