Lidded Pieces

  • For many people, the dragonfly is a symbol of hope, immortality, and the afterlife. This symbolism is particularly strong in Japan, where in some spiritual ceremonies, dragonflies are thought to be the guides of souls revisiting their families on earth. The three linked dragonflies remind us of the unbroken union of past, present, and future. The lid of this piece is sunk below the rim, giving it more of a vase-like appearance. Handmade to order.

  • Floating above the green earth, these sweet, rosy blossoms resemble billowing clouds. Delicate and ephemeral, blown by the spring wind and rain, the sakura soon fall, carpeting the earth with fragrant "snow." Their beauty, like life, is fleeting and must be enjoyed in the present moment. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.

  • No tree conveys a sense of strength and resilience like the oak. The tiny acorn contains everything necessary to grow into a strong, tall tree that is able to withstand the ravages of weather and time. This piece reminds us that strength and resilience, while they may be manifested on the outside, originate in that essential kernel within. Handmade to order.

  • The Craftsman Rose is a classic motif that never goes out of style. Here it appears framed in a windowpane pattern that accents its square shape. The full, round belly of the bowl provides a contrasting softness that is echoed in the handle of the jar's lid. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
