Harwood Homemade Pottery and Giveaway


This week I wanted to share some of my favorite kitchen bowls/containers! These are made by a very talented artisan, who also happens to be a friend of mine. And, YES, I would still love them even if she wasn’t my friend! LOL

It’s happily made hand-thrown functional stoneware. No two pieces are alike & that’s what I like about them. They’re original, unique, beautiful & oh so functional. Pictured below is my favorite bowl that sits on my counter full of GARLIC. If you’ve read many of my recipes you know how much I love garlic! And, YES I truly do use all of that.

Along with two smaller bowls that are perfect for mixing vinaigrettes, having a bowl of cereal, LOL whatever you like! Her company is called Harwood Homemade and she sells her creations on Etsy. Here’s a link to her shop: http://harwoodhomemade.etsy.com

    After looking at Harwood Homemade Pottery, I picked many pieces that I could see in my kitchen. First I loved the green bowl, and Paula your idea of keeping the garlic in the bowl is perfect. I never thought about using garlic for decoration before using it!
    My second pick was the large cups. I could see some fresh cut mums out of my garden in those cups.
    Great items! Thanks for sharing!
