Our ceramics, such as this Arbor Vitae Green Stoneware Baking Dish, are inspired by the stunning natural beauty of Door County, the southern part of the amazing Niagara Escarpment. The arbor vitae cling to the cliffs and fill the air with it’s tenacious aromas, the fresh air off Lake Michigan and Green Bay lift spirits, the clear water and skies expand hearts and minds of all who visit. Our shapes, images and glazes reference the lakes, cliffs, forests, beaches, and weather in each piece of functional art we make. We translate these powerful experiences into abstract and universal images that elicit an instant response by the viewer which makes visiting our showroom an interactive experience.
Each ceramic covered dish is 3.5" tall and 3" wide at the base. These make unforgettable gifts for so many occasions: Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, and Housewarmings. People have baked hot dip or stored tea bags and change or dog treats. We use ours as a covered butter dish. The possibilities seem endless. Remember to treat yourself when you're picking out the perfect one for a gift.
