The inspiration to create our line of slip-cast functional pottery comes from nature. By translating nature’s designs into clay we are able to invoke a new appreciation for everyday objects. Fruits and vegetables have such a variety of shapes, colors, and textures. We are intrigued by the cantaloupe’s rough, dry outside texture contrasting its smooth, bright, and sweet interior. By casting directly from the actual fruit or vegetable, we are able to replicate these designs in each bowl. Our line is constantly evolving and expanding with each trip to the farmers market and each passing season. Vegetabowls aims to promote local farming, healthy eating, and an appreciation for handmade functional house wares. Each item is handmade in our Sarasota studio using earthenware clay and food safe glaze!
