Wish Upon a Jar

A fitting home for your wishes upon stars or hopes for the future, this beautiful pot invites you to record your goals and desires on paper, roll them up, and drop them in as a therapeutic exercise of collecting positive thoughts. Hand-lettered on the jar's surface is a poem about growth and renewal, meant to inspire the reader as it circles the vessel. This hand-thrown jar makes an elegant gift for a recent graduate, a newlywed couple, or anyone with big dreams.

Each inspired design is handmade and painted by Eric Hendrick and Noelle VanHendrick at the couple's Vermont studio, partially powered by methane gas from cow manure as a clean, renewable energy source. Handmade in Vermont.

Eric Hendrick and Noelle VanHendrick



Noelle VanHendrick and Eric Hendrick are a husband and wife team who have been creating together since the year 2000. They met in pottery class at West Virginia University and were good friends for a good while. They courted candling wood kilns and playing chess. Now, from their home in southern Vermont, they make it all happen. They homeschool their three sons and create art for the world to enjoy. “It is poetic, I have raised my sons on buckets of love and cups of beautiful…”, says Noelle. “ I intend for it all only to get better and better….” There is an underlying mission to the work. A mission of cultivating world peace beginning at home, in the body, mind, and spirit. Eric and Noelle create and design goods that align with this mission.

Very cute bowl but not all I had hoped


Thought it would come with decorative papers and ribbons. Also, not easy to ever read your wishes and dreams again as it is a very narrow opening. Break it? I don't think so. Thoughtful idea.
