"A few years ago, in 2010 perhaps, I purchased two Blessing Bowls at a craft show in Michigan. Since then, they have always been out on our drain board mat by the sink and have *never* been put away in a cupboard. They're either waiting to be washed, have just been washed, are drying, or waiting to be filled with something healthy, tasty, and yummy. Their message flows into me every time I walk by, or pick one up to use it. They are the first vessels I reach for when I am preparing or dishing out my own meal. And I have been a potter off and on my entire 59 year-old life! They have brought me *such* inner peace and outer calm, each and every day. I can't thank you enough for creating these little miracles. It was just "meant to be" that I went to the craft show that day - the only day that I had to go "exploring" when I was in Leland, MI that summer. Namaste,"

- Heidi


"I love it! It is so perfect, it just took my breath away! It looks just like the couple - they are going to be so pleased! I just had to call and gush! I love the back of it and the little heart feet. I know it will be one of the most favorite gifts they ever get!!"

- Katha Heinze

I just relieved the piece of pottery, and had to let you know how pleased I am. It's just beautiful, and I cannot wait to present it to my Granddaughter at her shower. I'm certain this will not be the last piece I order from you.
Thanks from a happy customer!"

I just realized that I hadn’t sent you a message yet. They arrived Friday and Jeanne opened them on Sunday. They are perfect! Exactly what I pictured and we discussed. I can’t thank you enough!

Best wishes for a happy, prosperous and blessed year. It has been a pleasure doing business and corresponding with you.
Best regards"

How delighted I was today to find the big box outside my door in time for me to leave for the wedding tomorrow. Then more delight when I saw the beautiful bowl inside.

Blessings of Peace and Light."

"Dear Julie and Youngman,
John gave both my mom and me one of your hand made blessing bowls at Christmas. My mom uses her bowl daily for her cereal and when we visit it is often used as a serving bowl. At my house my guests always chose the blessing bowl for their food, but I do use it when I get the opportunity. Maybe they should come in boxes of two. Our blessing bowls are very well liked and treasured.
Thanks so much for making them. All the best to you both."

"Dear Julie,
Since I received my blessing bowl last year, I use it every day for cereal or ice cream. I enjoyed my bowl so much, I gave two bowls as gifts and I know they use theirs almost every day also. I love the colors and the blessing words."

- John Bourgault


"Julie,
It's been over five years since my longtime companion and best friend passed away-my dog Lucas. It was a very difficult time in my life and you were there to help me through it. Not only was I morning the loss of Lucas, but I had just separated from my wife after being married for 16 years. You were kind enough to make a wonderful urn in memory of our lovely Lucas. We had no children so he meant the world to both of us. You went the extra mile and produced two urns, one for each of us and we both have them proudly displayed to this day. We cannot thank you enough for helping us through a difficult time in our life and allowing us to move forward while remembering Lucas in the proper manner. Warmest Regards and God Bless You."

- Doug Clemens

"I just got a thank you note from the minister at the church where the memorial was held for my mother. "Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift of the blessing bowl. I absolutely love it and see it everyday- and every day remember you and pray for you."
