Emerson Creek Pottery had been creating homemade ceramics since founded in 1977 by Priscilla Palmart and Jim Leavitt . They are located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Each ceramic piece is formed out of clay made on site and is hand-made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. Each piece is a carefully planned and thought out drawing and no stencils or templates are used.
Simply Southern Couponers has had the opportunity to work with Emerson Creek Pottery. I was sent a list and picked out the 8″ Cracker Basket from the Field of Iris line. The Field of Iris is a signature flower of Emerson Creek Pottery and is one of their very first patterns. Even though this is a cracker basket, it can be used for many different things. I have been looking for things to start using to decorate my house with and after seeing this piece I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I used it as a “shell holder” on my dining room table. We went to the beach the end of May and Aubreigh picked a ton of seashells, but I haven’t had a way to display them yet. The 8″ Cracker Basket from the Field of Iris line has worked perfect.
The piece fit perfectly for what I wanted to use it for, and while I may still use it for crackers and such, but I love this as a decoration and this beautiful piece gets to sit out for everyone to enjoy, instead of being used every so often.
