Potter Patricia Bridges crafts each of her pieces with style and function, so you'll always want them on display and close at hand. Handmade in New York.

"It's important to me that what I make gets used in everyday life, and that each pot speaks to its new owner with every use," says Patricia Bridges. Her formal training comes from her early days spent with the League of New Hampshire craftsmen and taking workshops with well-respected potters. As a young apprentice for a studio potter in western Massachusetts, Patricia gained skills and appreciation for good functionality and design in clay. Creating art with an emphasis on functional forms has always been a driving force in her work. Her portfolio encompasses serving pieces, platters, lamps, and artisan yarn bowls. An avid knitter who has personally tested her own designs, her yarn bowls have been coveted by knitters around the world and have been featured in Vogue Knitting.

The description doesn't mention it, but this requires special strike-on-anything matches, and despite the pictures showing them, none are included. So I don't actually know if this expensive match holder even works. I have to go buy some special matches.

I love candles and matches are so much better than lighters. However, matchboxes are not always pretty. This is the perfect solution
