Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and its time to start brainstorming the perfect item for your wonderful mother. My go-to is always the handmade object, specifically pottery! Lately, Ira Burhans’ stoneware pottery has been catching my eye in the Gallery. Between serving trays, mixing bowls, mugs, vases, and serving bowls, you will find an item that will brighten up any meal and look good when its in the cupboard or on the table. The glaze colors enhance the playful forms, and the balance of shiny and matte surfaces are great for food prep and serving.
If pottery isn’t a good fit this year, stop by the Gallery (sooner rather than later!) and take a look at the amazing jewelry, wood, and glass items. You might even find some quirky, metal sculptures! Either way, handmade is always the way to go for Mother’s Day presents.
