It's Giveaway Time!

Like most things I can't do, pottery of any sort fascinates me, and the unique items that Pearl of Fehu Stoneware creates are no exception. A Colorado-based artist, Pearl has been working with ceramics for most of her life. She made the move to pottery about 20 years ago, and her experience definitely shows in her work.

Pearl makes some functional pieces but really enjoys creating art pottery. The new pieces she's been designing with the crystals are her personal favorites: combining clay and stone feels very special to her. I think that comes through loud and clear--her pieces are beautiful!

Pearl is generously donating one of her buttons as a prize to a lucky reader. I've picked a few of my favorites here to show you. Now it's your turn: go visit Fehu Stoneware, pick out your favorite item, and post a comment here with the URL the item. Comments will be accepted until midnight (Eastern U.S. time), Thursday, July 10, 2008. On Friday I'll use that handy randomizer.org thingie to generate a winning number, and the comment that corresponds to the number will win their choice of one of Pearl's awesome buttons. Make sure to leave a link to your blog or an email address in your comment so that we can contact you if you win. Sorry, but comments without contact info will be disqualified.

I just visited Pearl in Colorado and observed firsthand how talented she is. Every one of her pieces is one-of-a-kind art, and each one is beautiful!

I am a fan of Pearl's work. It is hard to choose a favorite, but I'll say this one is catching my eye because the triple moon design reminds me of Pearl. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11577304

Thank you for this wonderful entry about Pearl and her pottery! I have one of her darling little PayPal Fairy Bait Jars, and I love it! I also have the very first ACEO she ever made, called "Behind the Curtain." I recently gave one of Pearl's vases to my mom for her birthday, and she was so delighted I thought she might pass out!

I also have a lovely fiery heart button, in case I ever learn to make journals! Obviously, I am a fan!

So, I couldn't pick just one favorite from her shop right now, but I was able to narrow it down to two.

very nice work!
the porcelain bowl is my favorite.
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11896765
I throw pottery when I have time (which isn't too often) and I've dabbled in the porcelain realm. I have much respect for those who can handle it!

Why have I not seen this work before? It's beautiful!

I think so many are beautiful and I have several favorites! But this incense burner looks to be right up my alley!

Her work is truly fabulous! I have bookmarked her!

Waterrose said...

Well I put my comment and url under the desert post...it must have been a subconscious wish for that piece of pie! Can you send that too!

So, anyway, my favorite is this one and I have the perfect quilt to place it on

Liz said...

However can I pick a favourite from Pearl's shop?! I've already bought up most of my favourites from there!!!! And actually that dragonfly button is a strong contender. Here we go... Yes. It's the dragonfly button. It used to be the waterfall bowl but it got sold:( And not to me!!!
