Each Pinch Pot is made with translucent frost porcelain, depicting pleasures spanning from persimmons, portraits, patterns, and prose. Many have gold rims, some contain secrets, others are an ode to a painter or two. The raw unglazed bottom shows the frost porcelain at its most beautiful state. We have found that these pinch pots are ideal vessels for olive oil, Maldon salt, your favorite rings and things, etc. Each pinch pot varies slightly in shape, size and design. No two are the same. They are meant to be a surprise. Who doesn’t love a surprise?
They all vary, but you will find that they are ~3-4’’ diameter.
We are so pleased to present our current collection of ceramic pieces by Maine artist Dominique Ostuni. We fell head over heels for Dominique's beautiful approach to life and art, her incredible spirit and character, and our shared love of craft and celebration of our community.
Please see images of various current designs. We will surprise you with the piece! Or, email us at email@example.com and we can send photos and will do our best to help you select your favorite piece from available designs.
Care & consideration: Frost Porcelain is a translucent porcelain clay body. Not microwave safe due to gold luster. We recommend hand-washing while listening to ABBA in the kitchen.
