Emerson Creek Field of Iris Bud Vase #GiftGuide Giveaway
Emerson Creek Pottery is really beautiful and influenced by the energy of Early American cobalt decoration. The owners, Priscilla Palmer and Jim Leavitt founded Emerson Creek Pottery in 1977. Priscilla developed a unique technique with a Japanese brush which is one of the reasons why her art is so distinct. Priscilla’s love of the natural world shines through all of her pieces in every collection. They have been featured at Monticello, Mt. Vernon and the Smithsonian Institute! Their clay is made onsite, formed onsite and each piece is hand made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. They don’t use stencils. They rely on the precision of each hand stroke! 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. They have 13 different lines of ceramic pottery, including their signature line – Field of Iris, a classic since 1977. All of their work is microwave and dishwasher safe, lead free and ovenproof.
