2015 Holiday Gift Guide

More than five years ago, Joanna Buyert quit her full-time job and stuck her hands in some clay. Now a potter in Minneapolis, she molds that clay into kitchen items using soft glazes and romanticized textures that invite you to touch and hold them. Her sweet 5-inch honey pot comes with a honeycomb stick. The soft seafoam green lace serving tray adds a touch of elegance when entertaining guests. The three mini nesting bowls are microwave safe, have carved edges that flow like waves, and are great for holding snacks or ice cream. The big berry bowl is 10 inches wide, with two handles, holes, and a mini plate attached at the bottom to catch water drips.
