It’s difficult to find anything truly unique in this day and age. I can eat a burger at a fast food restaurant in California, hop a plane to New York and, once I land, find the same restaurant and eat the same burger all over again. It is packaged and sold to each of us as a model of reliability and consistency, but is that lack of variety always a good thing? I’m not so sure.
The Value of Different
Every day, more and more consumers are interested in finding something that sets them apart from the crowd. These customers aren’t remotely interested in having the same decorations and styles exhibited by their neighbor, they want something different, something better. Identical items produced by machines to be mimeographed copies of one another are no longer enough. Now it’s important to carry items that allow your customer to fulfill their desire to be unique.
There are sources for products out there that fill this niche, and one of them is Ellie Pots Inc., a company that produces high quality, hand-crafted crystalline pottery. You know it’s different because any hand-crafted item, even when created by the most skilled of craftsman, will be one-of-a-kind. One may be similar to that which came before, but no two will ever be exact duplicates. There will always be some fluctuation in temperature that causes a minor difference in color tint or a shift on the wheel effecting a slight change in shape that gives each piece a unique personality.
The Poetry of Craftsmanship
With over 10 years of experience, Ellary Blair personally designs and creates each piece of crystalline pottery with an eye toward quality and craftsmanship. Graduating from the University of Kansas in 2002, Ellary earned a BFA and decided that crystalline pottery was the area she wished to pursue. At that moment, Ellie Pots Inc. was born.
Now Ellary creates beautiful pieces that are all but ordinary. She offers tiles, vases, bowls, ornaments and now even lamps! Ellary’s most proud of her line of horse hair raku items. This process uses actual horse hair! When the hair is applied to a recently fired piece, the hair leaves black marks anywhere it has touched and the result is simply breathtaking.
