Dinnerware ready to be packed up and shipped.

Martha Stewart’s blog ‘The Bride Guide’, and their week long feature on ‘white on white’

Dad and I have been busy in the shop shipping out dinnerware that has been ordered from our registry.  A lot of brides & grooms are starting to find us and our new wedding registry.  The funny thing is, everyone’s been registering for 5 pc place settings in the our glaze Oyster!  I think everyone really appreciates the handmade, yet modern, milky look of these pieces.  And I think others would agree.  Over on Martha Stuart’s blog, The Bride Guide, they are doing a weekly segment on White on White….I should write to Martha and tell her about DSP!

The perfect Holiday Gift for everyone!

eggs

Our lidded crock cooks an instant poached egg in your microwave! No oil or water is needed. Just crack the egg in the base, cover and heat for 30 seconds for a perfect breakfast. And because all of our stoneware pottery is dishwasher safe, cleanup is a breeze! This is one of our customers’ favorite items to use at home, and to give to friends and family as gifts….perfect for the Holidays!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

While I was deciding what to write about I was also thinking about what to do that would be special for my Dad’s Birthday.  Then it dawned on me, why not write about him today and all of the ways he’s influenced my life!  So here’s Happy Birthday to the best Dad ever!

DadandPipe

DadThrowingDad is the head honcho behind the pottery company Dodge Station Pottery. He’s been making pottery for over 30 years-as you can tell by the black and white photos I found.  He and my mom have been creating pottery for as long as I was born.  My brother, sister and I grew up running around the shop and playing in the clay.  If you’d like to see Dad throwing a pot click here..

ArtDad is also a painter, and a fine artists of all mediums.  Whether it be drawing, sculpture, etching, or screen printing, he’s taught me so much!  Well I guess I haven’t mentioned that besides being my dad, he was my high school art teacher…maybe I picked up a thing or two in class…

I’m sure everyone else is with me on this one when I say-  Happy Birthday Dad, from your family!  You’ve always been a great instructor, coach, and craftsmen to those you’ve educated in school and in sports.  But to us you’ve been our biggest teacher and fan!  Thanks for all you do!

Love,

Your Family

Bowls with Benefits!

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Today is a very exciting day for Dodge Station Pottery.  We are launching the 1st Annual Bowls with Benefits!  It started as a little idea in our head when Dad was throwing bowls to help the school with the charity ‘Bowls for Hunger’.  And I, being his new student, was helping him.  (Well I only made 10 one day and haven’t been out there since!)  We were brainstorming ideas of what we could do to help give back and that’s how this little campaign came about.  Everyone could do more to help others, and in the spirit of the upcoming holidays, let’s all do our part to give a little of ourselves to help someone in need!  Please help me spread the word, let’s make this big!  Together we can help make a difference.

I will be posting everyone’s stories of sharing, giving, and creativity here.  The person who has the most inspiring, or heartfelt story will win a $100 gift certificate to Dodge Station Pottery-just in time for the holidays!  Here is the newsletter below:

It all started in 1997 when Jeff Napp of Dodge Station Pottery was teaching high school Art and founded the charity ‘Bowls for Hunger’. He threw 500 bowls and the students got to hand-paint them. When they were all done, they hosted a supper and the community gathered to pick out their bowl, eat soup and chat. All of the proceeds went to the Marquette County Food Bank, to help one of the poorest counties in the state. Since then he has retired from teaching at the high school but the charity continues on growing every year…

This year Dodge Station Pottery got to thinking, what can we do to help those in need? Besides those who are less off, there are elderly that are home bound with no one to talk to, there are people who need assistance preparing meals. The ideas kept on coming, and we decided to start the 1st Annual, Bowls with Benefits! What can YOU do to give back?

Fifth

Share your stories, ideas, or pictures. Send us an email or letter and we will share everyone’s stories here on the blog. The person who has most creative, unique or heartfelt story will,

Win a Dodge Station Pottery gift certificate for $100!
