making the ritual of cooking and eating, sharing food with friends and family and using handmade tableware and dinnerware a beautiful and enjoyable experience. Her cone 6 functional pottery is uniquely decorated. There are a number of series or styles Cori is known for. One contains multiple layers of coloured slips and glazes. Some of the designs she create on my pottery bring joy and giggles out of those who use them.
“I take on the task of making functional pottery as a very serious responsibility however, in that if you are to invest in having me join you and your family, and guests on a daily basis in your kitchens and dining rooms, I want you to really adore the pots, and know that I have taken my ‘job’ as YOUR POTTER, to make beautiful forms, that bring you enjoyment.”
Or, perhaps your favourite piece gets dusted every once in a while upon your bookshelf that remains a piece of visual beauty or interest. However, the notion of waking up and strolling into the kitchen for your first cup of tea or coffee when your eyes are hardly open and you know another day awaits you with all the trials and difficulties that you may have to manage… and you have a choice of which mug you are going to pour that first cup of java in, and it is that Cori Sandler mug that you choose to use, puts a smile on Cori’s face.
You may have bought from me personally at an art show, or through an online purchase or through a shop or gallery. I truly am humbled that you have chosen to spend that quiet time or perhaps it is fast and furious moment, with a piece of my work in hand, perhaps making those minutes that you have before your day begins a little more enjoyable.
Cori makes bright, fun, funky colourful pottery (all food safe and dishwasher safe) and she also makes pottery that is quiet and somber and asks you, the user, to reflect and take some time to caress the pieces and feel their curves, and textures. The ocean floor seems to have found its way in much of her more recent work. Colours of the ocean have swept their way into her work with shades of blues and turquoise, and of sand and sun bleached driftwood.
“My current stoneware and porcelain pottery reflect the image of the texture of the sand as the tide moves over the beach, the movement of the waves, can be felt under the glazes. These glazes are rich and deep, and one can spend a long time looking at a piece and seeing something a little different in it each time they look at it.
I promise I won't send lots of useless info. However, if you want to know what's happening on my end in terms of shop updates, and pottery related juicy bits, then I just may send out a notice here and there.
Because I am a 'very' small business at this time, and I'd love to get the word out that this is what I do...(and I hope you'll help spread the word), if you sign up, you'll get a wee discount on your next order. How's that?
