Mound to Mountain
In all of the wonders of nature, few things invoke the particular awe of mountains. The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia provide a special kind of inspiration for artist Wendy Wrenn Werstlien, who created this organic-yet-elegant bowl. Like the Blue Ridge Mountains, this hand-thrown, footed bowl rises above its surroundings. Each large serving dish starts as a block of clay, until Wendy lovingly shapes the mound, focusing more on forming natural curves than on producing uniform pieces. She then uses carving tools to cut notches resembling the lush forest at the base of the mountains and adds her special hand-mixed glazes to each piece. Whether you're displaying fruit, creating an earthy centerpiece, or presenting this elevated dish as a gift, the blue-gray color, undulating lip, and tactile texture serve as a reminder that the mountains are calling. Handmade in Floyd, Virginia.
