March 25, 2010Etsy Love: Kb Originals Etc Pottery

The other night I announced to my husband that I was quitting my day job and throwing myself full-time into pottery. He chuckled heartily, not because he’s unsupportive, but because he knows that a) I make drastic pronouncements like this all the time with absolutely no intention behind them and b) I took one pottery class in college, and the only thing I made that didn’t either fall apart on the wheel or explode in the kiln is one tiny little pot hardly big enough to hold some spare change.

My little pot (which I still have, of course) is nice, but quite laughable, indeed, especially compared with the cool stuff in potter Kim Berger’s Etsy shop, KbOriginalsetc, which boasts gorgeous, colorful housewares, including some awesome doggy treat jars and bowls. I love pretty much everything in her shop.

And, since any dog will tell you there’s not much use in an empty treat jar, Kim’s shop also features home-baked, personalized dog cookies made by Kim herself.

I’m going to go sit in the corner with my little clay pot and feel inferior now.

    You should get back into it. You and Stevie could sit at the wheel and re-enact that Unchained Melody scene from Ghost.

    Those are gorgeous- I took pottery classes for a few months last year & those lids are *hard* to make.

    Know what else is hard to make? Anything that isn’t lopsided.

    I’ll join you in the corner with the “teapot” I made. I say teapot very loosely.

    How is it that you always post the exact things I’ve been thinking about buying but have yet to find one I like? i.e. cute as heck food bowls and treat containers. It’s very weird and insanely awesome.

    Those jars and bowls are so cute! I too had difficulty in pottery. My clay barely even stayed on the wheel when I was trying to mold it. One thing I truly failed at!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who failed at pottery (potting?). What’s the old saying, ineptitude loves company? Something like that. :D

    Ashley – I have wondrous psychic powers. I almost always use them for good. :D

    These are so gorgeous. I would totally break them though. Or Topaz would. ;)
