On The Wings Of Love

Help your favorite newlyweds build their nest with this charming bowl by Tasha McKelvey. Highlighted by a lustrous glaze and sweet hand-sculpted details, two love birds finished in your choice of color perch on the side of the stoneware dish, holding a scrolling banner to announce the new couple's first names (up to 12 characters each), followed by the date they said "I do." The curving design is a fitting vessel for side dishes, candy, or even small treasured trinkets, while the thoughtful design lends keepsake appeal. Handmade in Virginia.

Sold individually.

“Being an artist is as much a part of my identity as being female. I really can't imagine a life where I am not creating.”

Tasha McKelvey likes to get personal. "My greatest hope for my work is that it lives in the homes and hearts of the owners as a reminder of the most special moments in their lives," she says. Her handcrafted, often personalized ceramics are born of specific moments in her life, too. Designs tend to arise from places that recall times of yore—picture books from her childhood, or the Christmas markets of northern Europe she’s visited. Her wonder, in turn, produces more. "I love when families with small children receive a piece of my pottery that features little birds, gnomes, or such and the kids give them names," she says. "It's just so precious.”

This is an awesome wedding or anniversary gift! We have been married for 14 years and I just had to have this for our anniversary :0) Beautiful handmade/customized piece, and great decor for display! It has a special place on our mantel as a reminder of our special day. If I still had an office job, I could display it with pride on my desk and use it as a candy dish...or on my husband's desk so he doesn't forget our anniversary ;0) My only con is it is a bit pricey; however, it is made by hand for the recipient and so beautiful that I didn't care.

After waiting over 6 weeks to get this wedding bowl, I was very disappointed in the final product when it arrived. The quality of the glaze was extremely inconsistent. Some areas of the bowl had virtually no glaze especially around the rim of the bowl which actually felt very rough to the touch, almost "unfinished" in nature. Other areas had streaky drip marks which your eyes were immediately drawn to unfortunately. The feet of the birds did not align with their bodies by any stretch of the imagination but rather appeared to be random black marks on the bowl. Lastly, the lettering of the names on the bowl lacked uniformity. One of the letters in the bride's name was positively gigantic in relationship to the rest.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Wedding Bowl:

      My brother and his wife pride themselves on making handmade gifts. I am not crafty. When I saw this, it was as close as I could get to something handmade. When they opened it, they literally said, "this is our taste". I assume I did well because it is sitting on their entertainment center next to the TV !

      It is too small and cheap looking. Was very disappointed and embarrassed to give it to the couple. Especially for what we paid for it.

              Didn't get to see in person as I had it shipped directly to them. My niece sent me a picture of it and it is as cute as advertised. My niece and her hubby have very long names so keep that in mind when you purchase as it wraps around it. Very pleased though.

                  This was my second purchase of this bowl. The first bowl I fell in love with. This second bowl seems smaller thinner and the birds also smaller and not as cute. Will not buy again.
