Kooky Pottery is the accidental result of my epic struggle with the potter’s wheel. Because my initial results were so awe-inspiring-ly awful, I put faces on my first pots so I could even brace putting my unfortunate results in the kiln. However, something in their smiley personalities seems to touch a chord with people and I could not keep my initial hand thrown line in stock at Little Flower, a boutique café in Pasadena so drawing from my experience in toys. So, I had them manufactured overseas – they are food safe – and they arrived here in March 2013! Since then, we’ve have great response – especially from Museum Shops: FIDM, the Orange County Museum gift shops are carrying a little Kooky and a few more shops soon!
The Kooky personalities are all named after people I know and reflect their colorful personalities. Christine Elephant is named after Christine Moore, the owner of Little Flower Candy Company and perhaps my biggest fan.
Paperclips, rubber bands, loose change, stray buttons, seashells, pretty pebbles, pocket lint, single earring backs, gold, diamonds, precious and semi-precious gems of all sizes, the thing that came off your watch last weekend, hard sour candies, gum balls, salted caramels, good fortune cookie fortunes & other pieces from your every day life.
