Trickle Down Theory

Where are you going to put that whisk you just rinsed off? We all have jars, or mugs, or "that corner of the cabinet." But what if your utensil holder was actually a thing of beauty that you were more than proud to display in your kitchen. Imagine using this artful caddy from master potter Tony Holman. He hand throws the stoneware cylinder and its attached saucer on his wheel, and forms a convenient spout for draining off any pooled water. He finishes it off with a wonderful, earthy glaze with rich, speckled colors. Handmade in Plano, Texas.

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

Master Potter Tony Holman began honing his pottery skills in 1978 at Indiana University and fine tuned them in 1980 at Bloomington Pottery. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Indiana University in 1982 and a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of North Texas in 1986.

The shapes of Tony's vessels are both functional and decorative. Close attention is paid to the finishing touches of this pottery. Because Holman Pottery is hand crafted, no two are exactly alike—lending beautiful variations of color, texture, and shape to each piece.

We just remodeled our kitchen and even after spending a ton of money on that, I couldn't resist this extra purchase. After new granite counters and new oak cabinets and new floor, how could I put a boring dish drainboard next to my new farmhouse sink? This utensil caddy is now right next to our new sink, draining wet flatware right into the sink. The only thing I don't like about this beautiful, richly colored, sturdy caddy is that it doesn't come with a matching drainboard. I don't know that pottery would be the best solution for a drainboard (or drying rack), but I do love how beautiful this functional tool is.

I love the ideas of this but it is too short and our utensils are leaving over the top too much. And the heavier ones won't even stay in. Great idea and it's a beautiful piece of pottery however it needs to be taller.

      It is perfect for what I needed. I like the way it looks and it is big enough for my needs. I had not seen anything like it before. I really like that Uncommon Goods donates $ to charitable organizations when I buy something from them.

        I have a strainer and I hate the utensils holder it's alway get funny and molded all the time and I do clean it. So I bought this pottery utensils holder thinking pottery nevers get funny . It's a good size and sturdy to hold fork knifes and spoons and it will drain the water instead of sitting and get molded in a regular utensils holder .

          I share a house with my sister. She has the upper level, I have the lower. I am using the bar for a kitchen. This utensil drainer is a neat addition - adds interesting character to my space, and solves an issue of what to do with cleaned utensils.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Utensil Draining Caddy:

                  This functional work of art is the perfect solution for drying/draining flatware/utensils in the kitchen or bar area. We specifically wanted a better way to dry items that we handwashed when not using the dishwasher. We have a double sink area and simply wash in one side and place items on the rack in the bottom of the other sink and on ribbed mats on the counter. We had no specific receptacle to hold flatware/utensils. We also have a bar with sink with the same issue, so I ordered two. I waited until we'd used them to rate because I was skeptical that the water would actually drain completely from the bottom.I filled two of these with cooking/prep utensils and flatware: each held lots. The next morning, everything was completely dry including inside the bottom of the 'cup'. These are substantial in size and do draw attention, so my suggestion/request would be to offer additional colors...a deep rust for example. I do coordinate and these have nothing to do with anything in my kitchen. Would purchase more if they matched and use these in the bar. I also think these would make good gifts for someone who wouldn't mind if they didn't match. Also, I sit these on the countertop behind the sink so they can sit in water on the counter. Wish it had 3 or 4 feet or a raised rib around the bottom so it would remain dry. All things, considered, this is a great handcrafted product.

                    It sits on the corner of my farmhouse sink and drains my hand-washed cutlery in style. It's a unique design that is very attractive and super functional. I'm going to be using it daily for many years to come.

                      It replaces a flimsy plastic silverware drainer in our new sink. It is perfect. Fits snugly in the round corner of our sink. Does not tip over. Looks great. Does everything it is supposed to do--drain utensils and dinnerware.

                          It holds up the utensils without falling over which is a HUGE plus. It is also very artsy looking and blends in well with everything in the kitchen. Not that I am one to match, but it does not take center stage.
