Earthborn Pottery Giveaway!!

I’ve already shared with all of you the amazing fun I had making my OWN pottery at Cahaba Clayworks last week, but now I have a piece of REAL pottery – Artisan, Five-Star Restaurant kind of pottery – for you to win!!

I have a bowl to give away to one of you is made by my Aunt Tena of Earthborn Pottery.

Earthborn Artisan Dinnerware is featured in 5-star restaurants, resorts, lodges, and country clubs across the United States, including MGM’s famed Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and Hot and Hot Fish Club here in Birmingham. It is created with an artist’s touch and a potter’s hand, combined to create functional art dinnerware.

I absolutely love Tena’s creations, and am slowly building up a collection of my own.

The glaze on this particular bowl caught my attention because of the amazing 3-D effect that seemed to possess. It reminded me of a Zinnia:IMG_7931
It features Tena’s signature shell-shaped buttons and these beautiful pedestal legs:IMG_7937

This bowl retails at $45, and is made with some of the most durable firing methods in the pottery world. It is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe, and is sure to last you for many years.

If you’d like to win this bowl, simply comment on this post!
