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.

    I use my caddy everyday for drying the utensils and if I need one during the day I pull from there. Also when having family and/or friends over I place it on the table indoors or outdoor for gatherings.

    Service and delivery comments:

    No issue with delivery and was very well protected for shipping.

              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.
