{ tempting me tuesday: whitney smith pottery }

I just love
Whitney Smith's simple, exquisitely hand-crafted ceramic pieces–inspired by her self described obsession with flowers and objects found in nature. Emulating the meticulous craftmanship of an earlier time, Smith throws all of her pieces on the potter's wheel first and then hand carves, textures and paints the distinct details that characterize her unique offerings.

I think one of Smith's captivating creations would make a perfect { and memorable } gift for the spring gift giving season that's upon us { think: weddings, mother's day, first home }. Smith also has a registry service and will work with couples to create custom pieces.

You can purchase Whitney Smith's pieces directly through her online shop, or, to see them in person, visit fine specialty stores throughout the U.S. While Smith's prices generally reflect the detailed, hand-crafted nature of her work, you can find some nice specials through her etsy shop and at her twice yearly sample sales in her Oakland studio.
