Salt, Pray, Love

Imagine a world without salt. Your asparagus would just be crunchy lumps of health. Now, tell us it isn't worthy of a shrine. Pay homage to the divine seasoning with Donna Potter's handmade stoneware "temple." Inspired by the Mojave Desert's brilliant hues, she created the bright glazed design. Featuring a wooden serving spoon for sprinkling and spout on the back for pouring, it's an elevated twist on the traditional shaker. Fill the dish with table salt or pink Himalayan salt for an extra pop of vibrant color. A great gift for culinary friends or new home owners, the piece adds an artful touch to a kitchen counter or dining table. Handmade in Henderson, Nevada.Serving spoon included.

“I let the clay tell me what it wants to be.”

Donna Potter has always visualized the world in her own unique way. As a child, she recalls coloring the mountains in colorful shades of while the rest of the kids colored theirs brown. “But if you look across the valley, the mountains are blue and purple to the eye,” she says. Though her artistic interests have shifted from drawing to sculpting, Donna still plays with form and color “norms.” In her Henderson, Nevada studio, she transforms piles of clay into intriguing works like her Salt Temple. “I let the clay tell me what it wants to be,” she says, “and eventually, new forms emerge.” When she's short on inspiration, Donna looks outside her door to the Mojave Desert. The brilliant hues and textures almost always find their way into her designs.
