Pottery is a craft as old as time. Yet local resident and potter Pam Cummings finds a way to make her pieces modern and elegant, as well as timeless. Her unique work is versatile, and currently at Cornerstone you’ll be able to find two pieces of hers: beautiful coffee mugs and melitta filters.
From Pam’s website:
I came to pottery about the same time I started growing flowers and enjoying cooking. Each day I enter my studio in the woods and make pots that speak of my surroundings– quietly elegant, functional pots that hint at the leaves whispering outside, or egrets winging along the nearby Susquehanna. These pots are objects I love to make, over and over again. I work to make the good individual pot that only comes from working in a series of related forms over time. The clay brings challenges and is always teaching me something new, if not about form or technique, then about patience and acceptance.”
And what a great way to brew a cup of coffee – her filter pots are the perfect size for a personal brew. You simply put a cone filter inside, add a couple of tablespoons of finely ground coffee, pour boiling water over the grounds, and let it drip into your cup! Can’t get any fresher than that.
We’re a big fan of her style, and proud to be selling her work here at Cornerstone. Stop by and see for yourself, and head over to her website to see even more designs!
