This handcrafted set would make a lovely wedding or housewarming gift for those who love to entertain. It allows fo an elegant way to serve tastes of wine, beer, or liquor. The tall tray can hold limes for tequila shots, yummy bites, or cocktail accoutrament (cherries, candied orange rind, lemon twist...). The set includes four ceramic shot glasses, one long tray, one small dish, and one small spoon. The shot glasses were thrown on a potter's wheel. The long tray was thrown on the wheel and then altered into it's oval shape. The small dish was made from a textured slab and the small spoon is hammered copper. Metalwork done by Ten26 Studio. All of the ceramic pieces were fired in a wood kiln.
Please note that each piece is handmade and therefore no two pieces are ever the same. Also, color varies across monitors. We try to represent the work in our photos as true to life as possible, but the color may vary slightly between the photo and the piece you receive.

A note about wood fired pottery: This work is fired in a kiln that is fueled strictly with wood. The pots are kissed with flame and fly ash. The atmosphere in the kiln can be harsh and volatile. This sometimes causes the pots to be slightly wobbly and/or warped. Sometimes drips of glaze or stuck wads need to be ground off the piece, leaving behind a scar. This does not diminish the quality of a pot; it only speaks to the firing process. Wood fired pots are truly one of a kind. Each firing is different because the outcome is dependent on many variables such as, but not limited to, the wood used, the weather, and the number of pots in the kiln. The uniqueness of this firing process and the pots that come out of it is what draws me to wood fire. I hope you find the same appreciation for this work.
