About Spirit Pots

These pots were born out of my need to be self-contained and whole within myself. I began rolling strings of clay and then curling and molding them into vessels—allowing serendipity to guide their swirls and placement. I consider them sacred containers that house authenticity. I love creating each one-of-a-kind piece. My intention is that they bring you stillness and peace of heart and mind.

In early Hawaii, children received at birth, a bowl called a Kalabash. Each child was asked to place a stone inside the bowl for each hurt, slight, moment of anger, jealousy, and so forth. At night children were encouraged to reflect on each stone and then release them from the bowl, allowing them to begin each new day with spirit restored. The souls bright and smooth, shining like the inside of these pots—that glistening core of humanity we all share despite uniquely complex exteriors and stories.
