“When I'm stuck creatively, I walk away from whatever it is I'm trying to do. It all usually becomes clear on my runs in the Santa Ynez Valley hills where I live and work.”

Ellen Bartfeld describes her practice in simple terms: “Each of my bowls is made with love.” And inspiration often comes from the customers themselves. “They might have requests,” says the glass artist, who crafts her wares in California’s Santa Ynez Valley, adorning them with symbolic objects. “I might be asked to find charms that are part of a wedding or bridesmaid theme. Every suggestion is a creative opportunity.” Once, Ellen created pieces for four sisters, using jewelry pieces from their late mother. “They were reminded of their mother every time they used their bowls,” she says. Even when her pieces are not personalized, they are still personal. Says Ellen, “I envision them on a dresser or by the bed, holding objects that have a special meaning.”

        Comments about UncommonGoods Birth Month Mini Dish:

        It is smaller than expected especially for the price. The bowl itself is pretty and of good quality however the "stones" are of under quality and the large one in the middle looked like a cheap piece of plastic and was a tad scratched looking.
        Ok for small earrings and rings that are worn daily. Would have almost rather had it without the "birthstone" in the middle as it cheapens the rest of the bowl which is nice.
        Looks more appropriate for a child or preteen than an older woman.

            This is a great gift. It's personal and sooo pretty! Because it's colored glass, it looks like it should be displayed near a window or bright light. I'm looking forward to giving it to my sister in law.
