"We're All in the Same Boat" - Olives

Serve olives with primitive elegance in Katherine Tucker's handcrafted stoneware boat. It's made from unglazed, extruded black clay (Cassius Basaltica) for a distinctive design that's equal parts rustic and urbane. Katherine extrudes ebony tubes from this unusual clay, cuts them in half, and hand pinches both ends to form casually organic vessels reminiscent of dugout canoes or pea pods—especially when graced with a line of delightfully briney Manzanillas. Pair with a jar of your favorite gourmet olives for a savory, stylish housewarming gift. Handmade in Birmingham, Alabama.

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

“I've always been compelled to create functional ceramic pieces not only because I love making things, but due to the dichotomy at the root of the process.”

"I've always been compelled to create functional ceramic pieces not only because I love making things, but due to the dichotomy at the root of the process," says potter Katherine Tucker. She's continually inspired to dream up more unique forms and elevate common household tools by what she calls "the opportunity to transform dirt to delicacy." A potter who’s been throwing pots for over 17 years, Katherine completed her fine arts and design degree in Georgia and moved to Alabama to intern at the Birmingham Museum of Art. There, she examined and cataloged ceramic pieces from the African and Pre-Columbian collections. "The pieces I've collected over the years are like a tactile travel journal," Katherine reflects. "Each transports me to a moment in time."
