Salt Cellar & Spoon by Maggy Ames
This charming covered salt dish by Maggy Ames is perfect for salt storage next to your stove or out on your counter for a buffet! We think it also makes a lovely jam pot! The sweet little spoon is made of un-fired black clay from Pennsylvania.
Maggy works in both porcelain and stoneware, her clay speaks two distinct but equally pleasurable messages. With her porcelain, she strives for light, flow, and grace ‑ those things which bring a quiet smile, a sense of peace and tranquility. These pieces have a function, but they often can be objects of beauty to be viewed as much as used. With her stoneware, her first thoughts are of the user. Is the piece intimidating or does it become part of the user's everyday life? Does it sit austerely on a shelf or does it invite warm stews and steaming soups? Maggy feels her stoneware should entice the user to believe that everyday utensils can be fine handmade works of craft. By working in both porcelain and stoneware, she believes she can offer more aspects of herself and her values as a potter.
