“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.”

I love my birthstone bowl, which a friend of mine gave me for my birthday. I use my bowl for my wedding and engagement rings but I can see it being used for other purposes such as car keys, other jewelry such as earrings, my husband's cufflinks, loose change, or even for office use to hold paper clips. It looks beautiful and stands out on my dresser, but would also look good on my coffee table or end table in my living room or on the desk in our den. I have received many compliments on it from friends and family. In fact, my daughter is planning a bachelorette party for one of her friends and is purchasing a bowl for each of the guests. The bowl would also make a perfect bridesmaid gift. Thank you Uncommon Goods for this unique and beautiful gift!

I bought the April bowl, as a treat for myself. I am disappointed in it. It's possible that the other months are pretty but April, because it is clear (to represent a diamond), is nothing special. The April version looks like it cost less than $10 from a 'big box' store. I think these birthday bowls are a great idea that, at least for April, was poorly executed.

      Beautiful dish. Rich purple color. Holds my jewelry at the end of the day but looks great when it's empty. I would definitely buy this as a gift for someone. Very well made.

        I felt t was a unique gift for my daughter. It was just the right size, very attractive and made very well for the purpose it was meant for. The card that came with it, with the information about the designer, added to it being special and not just something that can be purchased in just any store.
