Working with clay allows me freedom of expression within a structured environment.
Somerville, MA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Blue Cloud Gallery, a unique gift gallery in Somerville, Mass. that showcases handcrafted items made by local artists, recently announced that it will be featuring the work of Jon Baring-Gould, a potter who specializes in hand-thrown stoneware bowls. For the month of November, customers will be able to purchase his bowls at a 20% savings. His bowls are made in a variety of sizes and are glazed deep, rich shades in either blues or greens. The bowls are food and oven/microwave safe, and make beautiful housewarming gifts, as well as gifts for weddings and other special occasions.
"I particularly love making bowls," said Mr. Baring-Gould. "There is something so magical and calming about sitting at the potter's wheel. The spinning wheel, the feeling as the lump of clay squishes through my fingers, manipulating the clay with tools, the creation of a bowl - there is nothing like it in the world. Whether you are eating from a hand made bowl or drinking coffee from a beautiful mug, there is something wonderful about using a work of art every day."
Mr. Baring-Gould also makes handcrafted spirit shakers. The spirit shaker is a rounded palm-sized piece based on ancient traditions from around the world; each one features a distinctly expressive face. They are uniquely crafted in clay, and when gently shaken, release energy and bring peace of mind and contentment to its owner.
