This Week's Special!

Ceramic Colander

$ 60 USD


(Regular price is $85 with shipping)


This ceramic kitchen colander is perfect for serving berries or fresh rinsed vegetables, I created this ceramic berry bowl on my pottery wheel out of porcelain clay, adding feet and leaf decorations to the sides while the clay was soft. I have more berry bowls with drainage holes in a variety of colors here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueSkyPotteryCO?section_id=7001252

The handmade tray it sits on was hand-rolled and then impressed with a cabbage leaf for this wonderful texture and then shaped to fit the berry bowl and catch drips from freshly rinsed berries or vegetables.

I glazed the leaf tray and leaf decorations in a pretty apple green which complements the glazes I used for the rest of the bowl.

This bowl will hold 2 lbs of berries, maybe more, and is 6.75" high x 7" across. Microwave safe (should you wish to steam some veggies in it) and dishwasher safe.


If you prefer to simply call me at 970-846-9349, I can take a credit card over the phone and ship it off to you, or click the Buy Now button and you can pay via PayPal.

Pollen Count III 23" x 30" Framed Original Watercolor Painting

$ 500 USD

In the spring, summer and fall, the air in the mountains where I live fills with seeds and fluff from the plants as they get ready to bloom, burst with color and then start making their preparations for a long winter. This activity can sometimes make the air sparkle with all the pollen and seeds making their way to fertile ground. This original watercolor painting is my take on that phenomenon in an abstract landscape kind of way. The vibrant reds, oranges and greens in this original Western landscape artwork really pop and are sure to add a touch of interest wherever you choose to place this.

Title: Pollen Count III
Size: Image is 14" x 22"; Framed size is 23" x 30"

Mini Colander Spoon

$ 24 USD

Includes Shipping

A new item that I came up with when we needed a new spoon for the black olives that my husband loves -- a tiny colander spoon - slotted serving spoon or scoop for lifting olives or berries or anything out of juice to transfer it to your plate. A cute kitchen food prep item. And works great for lifting a teabag out of your teacup.

This spoon is approximately 7" long and around 2" across....it will hold three to six medium olives. I made it as durable as possible by embedding a wire between the bowl of the spoon and its handle but I still would recommend hand washing since something this small can easily get crushed or bumped in the dishwasher.

These are available in green, yellow, purple, robin's egg blue, red, peach and navy blue. Use the note to seller at check out to choose your color.

If you would like more than one, please give me a call at 970-846-9349 or visit this listing at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/104594206


Set of 5 Nesting Bowls

$ 200 USD

Colorful, functional and beautiful, this set of five colorful nesting bowls are sure to be a hit whether you purchase for your own kitchen use or as a gift for a home chef, wedding or anniversary couple, or someone special to you who likes to cook. The colorful stacking bowls are artistic serving vessels and completely functional.

I made these bowls on my pottery wheel and then glazed each one in a different color that complements the color of the surrounding bowls. Very festive - and would complement any kitchen fiesta ware.

These are great for serving side dishes, sauces, condiments, or using as a personal bowl for soup, salad, ice cream.

The largest bowl is approximately 6" high x 9.25" across and the sizes gradually get smaller down to the littlest bowl which is 1.5" high x 3" across . Glaze colors are robin's egg blue, purple, yellow, green and red.

Artistic and functional, these ceramic colanders or berry bowls are just perfect for fresh berries starting to come in from the fields this spring.
I make them on my pottery wheel out of durable, white stoneware clay, incising decorative holes in the sides and lid to allow air flow and drainage as you rinse your berries or vegetables. And a little leaf shaped plate is included to catch any drips. At $65 for the set, these are affordable and unique.

I have these in a variety of colors in my shop online in my Etsy shop and physical shop in Steamboat Springs.
Art Cards are actually mini watercolor paintings done directly on Strathmore acid free card stock and come with a matching envelope enclosed in a protective cellophane sleeve. Blank inside so you can write your own message. 5" x 7" and suitable for framing. $10 each. You can find my full line of watercolor art cards here.

Bring the bright colors of summer flowers into your home or office with this original watercolor painting. Framed, it measures 14" x 17" and is very affordable at $120 for an original piece of art. You can find it online in my etsy fine art shop.
