Joan Platt Pottery

I just love when there is a fun story behind companies, and Joan Platt not only has unique pottery, she has a wonderful way of how she got to her creations.  When Joan was around 40, she broke her shoulder and as part of her therapy, was told to wash dishes.  Every woman's dream right?  After a short time of washing every dish known to man, she enrolled in a pottery class, since it used the same muscles, and fell in love.  30 years later, she is still in love making wonderful items for tabletops.  I am so intrigued by her 'one of a kind' items, these candlestick vases are a little modern, but a whole lot of classic.  You can check out a few of her pieces available here.
