I have always been a creative person interested in artistic hobbies. One I would love to try one day and haven't is pottery. I love the idea of making useful pieces of pottery from clay. In my search for Made in the USA products I found Emerson Creek Pottery in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. What a place to be inspired artistically!!
"Our pottery is formed of clay made on-site. Each piece is hand made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. Each pattern is a series of carefully planned strokes. No templates or stencils are used. The patterns are practiced and committed to memory. The artists paint the pattern again and again. Each piece is alike and yet different, like flowers in a field. We are currently featuring 14 different lines of ceramic pottery, including our beloved signature line - Field of Iris, a classic since 1977. All of our work is microwave and dishwasher safe, lead free and ovenproof."
Each piece in the collection is truly a work of art. I was amazed at the vastness of the collection online!

I was able to review a Cracker Basket from the Go Green line.
Absolutely beautiful, pictures just don't do it the justice it deserves.
The deep browns in this go with any current service ware you already own. I love how when we have a cheese and cracker tray we can separate out the crackers and line them up in this handy dish.
Look at some of these beautiful pottery pieces to adorn you kitchen with! If I were going to do refurnish my kitchen with pottery it would be from Emerson Creek Pottery. Their pieces are just amazing.
