Emerson Creek Pottery Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Oh Neighbors,

Here is another really nice company to share At the Fence. Pull up a chair while I tell you a little bit about Emerson Creek Pottery. First off, they are handcrafted and lead free. Isn't that a great start! They are made right in Bedford, VA. The company was founded in 1977 by Priscilla Palmer and Jim Leavitt.

They carry, dinnerware, bakeware, kitchenware, Ceramic Pitchers, Tea Pots, Tea Sets and Servingware. The designs on them are beautiful. I received the Ceramic Iced Tea Pitcher with the Iris design. I really had a hard time choosing a design. Of course you can purchase matching items in each design. All the Ceramic pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, and ovenproof. They even carry baby dishes. Now, you won't have to worry about all the toxins in plastic. (You can even personalize them!) The Baby Dishes come in Goldfish, Ladybug, and Shamrock.






They even carry lamps, clocks, candlesticks and other home decor that matches their kitchenware. I was amazed at all they carry!

Here is some information from their website:
"Influenced by the energy of Early American cobalt decoration, owners Priscilla Palmer and Jim Leavitt founded Emerson Creek Pottery in 1977. Priscilla developed the unique technique of applying natural pigments to an absorbent glaze with a Japanese Sumi-e brush. The spontaneity of the brush stroke, combined with the accuracy of design yields our distinctively recognizable style. Priscilla's deep love of the natural world provides a multitude of organic designs for all of Emerson Creek's pottery.

Our ceramic pottery has been featured at Monticello, Mt. Vernon and the Smithsonian Institute, as well as in fine homes across America. We have had the pleasure of designing customized pottery patterns for numerous clubs and organizations.

Our pottery is formed of clay made onsite. 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."

Emerson Creek Pottery is offering one of their four mugs in your choice of pattern. They are also going to give me a code for my neighbors to use. I will add that tomorrow evening.

Having trouble picking a favorite. I've narrowed it down to Field of Iris or the Lavendar flowers. I think I'm leaning towards Iris.

I visited Emerson Creek pottery and they have alot of cute designs but I think I would choose Ceramic Mug with the Rooster. Then I would probably give it to my sis as she loves Roosters
