Life in a Fishbowl

Did you know that goldfish can distinguish between individual humans? Your goldfish knows you, and that's why he swam to the front of your bowl to say hello. JoAnn Stratakos's friend's grandson, Ethan, age 7, loves to draw. He created this friendly finned fella, and she made him into a bowl. She starts by throwing a hunk of stoneware clay on a potter's wheel, smoothing and forming the shape. While it's still raw, she creates the slightly three-dimensional elements: fins, funny fish face, and bubbles. After it's fired in a bisque kiln and sanded, she paints and glazes it by hand and kiln fires it at 2,000 degrees. That's a lot for a little fish to go through, so treat him tenderly. Handmade by JoAnn Stratakos in Effort, Pennsylvania.

JoAnn Stratakos collaborated on our Goldfish Mug and Bowl with a talented friend of hers who happens to be 7 years old. Ethan, the grandson of Joann’s best friend in college, was born in Ireland and moved to California in 2014. When he was 5, he began taking art classes, and and has enjoyed learning colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolor, and acrylic painting. At home, he dabbles in sketching, clay, and crafts. His mom began sharing photos of his art on social media. JoAnn fell in love with the simplicity of the lines and asked if she could transfer some of his art into clay mugs, plates, and bowls. Permission was given, and JoAnn started to create designs inspired by Ethan’s paintings, including our Goldfish Bowl and Mug.
