“I learn something new each time I’m on the wheel. I try to decide if something makes a piece look good or changes it completely. The possibilities are endless with pottery. I can see something in everyday life and I try to figure out if I can make it myself and put my own spin on it” says artist Samantha Shamblin. She has only been a ceramic artist for about 4 years and continues to teach herself new and improved techniques.

          Makes an attractive addition instead of a plain old box of matches. Would recommend the longer matches (2"?) cause they will look better

                Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Match Striker:

                This product is great. I use incense a lot at home. The concept of having a vessel to hold my matches by my incense at the ready is handy. The unglazed rim around the opening of the vessel is used to strike the matches and works very well when you steady the striker with one hand and strike with the other. The bottom of the striker which is also unglazed works very well to strike the strike-anywhere matches too. I've read other reviews about people having trouble with the matches lighting but you need to allow the 2 different chemical portions strike together at the same time to allow the match to light. I have not had any problems with the vessel itself, only faulty match heads... Great product, would recommend.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Match Striker:

                Loved the pretty pottery of this. But we light candles nightly, and wanted to get rid of the ugly stack of matchbooks/boxes we have on the counter. This looked perfect! We're pretty disappointed that no matches we have...in any of our boxes...will actually strike on this. Feels like it will work. But alas, it does not. A pretty little match holder it is. Get something scratchy to strike on, though.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Service/delivery was fine.
