Sheltering Leaves

Reflecting the new life of natural leaves, these earthenware platters allude to the inspiring story behind them. When an Alabama women's shelter received a kiln as a donation, Jamie Ankenbrandt created a program that employed the shelter's residents to make pottery. Each set of two leaf platters starts its life as slab-rolled clay, which is pressed with silicone leaf molds and then cut into shape. The earthenware is fired, glazed in organic shades of green, re-fired, and finally hand-finished. The platters make inviting serving pieces for hors d'oeuvres, cheese, or sushi—a tasteful gift or addition to your own table.

The sale of these designs helps to support King's Home's ceramic art therapy ministry and the women who hand make the platters. "I believe that every piece should be a meaningful reminder of the courageous women who handmake them," says Jamie, reflecting on the intimate relationship between these women and their creations.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

"I seek to create an aesthetic that embodies the simple beauty of hope and fresh beginnings," says Jamie Ankenbrandt. "I believe that every piece should be a meaningful reminder of the courageous women who handmake them." When a women’s shelter in Chelsea, Alabama acquired an industrial kiln as a donation, Jamie used her background in fine arts and non-profit work to create a program that employed the shelter's residents to make pottery. The hands-on program has served as a safe haven for countless women, allowing them the opportunity to grow in their basic job skills as they seek to get back on their feet after facing tremendous setbacks. As they learn how to roll clay, paint, tag, and inventory pottery, they are also creatively solving problems and developing relationships in the workplace.
