Hope Fregerio Pottery {Product Spotlight}


Hi all, and happy April!

I hope your week is off to a great start. Around here, we’re excited about all things Spring, and that includes our gorgeous new pottery collection! These beautiful soap and ring dishes are made to order in Charlotte, North Carolina. The artist, Hope Fregerio, draws inspiration from the colors and shapes of the natural world. She often relates the glaze colors on her pieces to the organic inspirations around her: the mountains and beaches of the Carolinas. Her background in ceramic art and passion for pottery allow her to add beauty and fulfillment to her life and the lives of others through her pieces. Here are a few of my favorites:

Aren’t they lovely?

I think any of these pieces would make a wonderful and unique Mother’s Day or bridesmaid gift. From the custom color-block initial ring dish and personalized wedding ring bowl to the personalized initial soap dish, each would be a welcome addition to a loved one’s home. Check out the rest of the collection!

Fair Trade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Well, Mother’s Day comes every year, doesn’t it? And somehow it always sneaks up on me. Inevitably, I’m scrambling around ordering flowers the day before. Or running to the store to buy ingredients for a special Mother’s Day brunch—except, oops, everyone else had the same idea and they’re fresh out of strawberries, OJ, and eggs. And I suddenly remember I’m a horrible cook. Well. Sorry, Mom.

Your dollars go directly toward helping these mothers earn a sustainable income to feed, support, and just plain have the energy to love their children.
