When it comes to gift-giving and receiving, handmade is my favorite. There’s something about knowing that someone else made an item with her own two hands that makes it more special than a gift that’s been manufactured by the thousands. Plus, it feels good to support artists and small businesses. Up until Christmas, I’ll be peppering my posts with gift giving ideas for the food enthusiast and/or vegan on your list, paying special attention to handmade artists.
Of course, it was only natural to start with my own pottery shop, Olive Pit Pottery. I’ve been going into the studio everyday, wedging, rolling, and glazing, getting things ready for the holidays. Now my closets are packed and my Etsy shop is fuller than ever. True to the name, I’ve even added a couple of olive dishes that are two sided – one to hold the fruit and the other to hold the pits.
