the potter’s wife – rm pottery giveaway

You guys are lucky. My sponsor (and hubby) RM Pottery actually donated a beautiful tea cup as a giveaway. You want to know how lucky you are? I am the potter’s wife and I don’t get pretty tea cups. I don’t even have plates made by him. Just like the saying goes the “shoemaker’s children go without shoes”, the potter’s wife goes without pottery. 10 years together and I’m still waiting for my dinner set. 

Our house if FILLED with handmade pottery but I only get the leftovers. The random pieces that didn’t have the perfect shape or the glaze didn’t turn out just right. Don’t get me wrong, we have tons of beautiful stuff around the house, it is either his that is earmarked for the shop or galleries or from other potters we love.

But this piece, nope, it is perfect. I plucked it out from his last kiln firing and forced him to donate it for a giveaway. He had no choice ;) ***

Aren’t you glad I did? This tea cup (as are all RM Pottery pieces) is food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe so it is as functional as it is pretty to look at.

***Disclaimer: I don’t force my sponsors to give me items for giveaways nor did I use any forms of coercion in getting my hubby to be a sponsor. He has been sponsoring a few blogs here and there for some time now. Apparently mine finally passed the test. That and I might have given him my sad eye look that he always falls for ;) ***
Thanks for following Directions Not Included!

    Would love to be entered in your giveaway and am a follower! Green tea is my morning pick me up. I have always wanted my own special cup, and this one is beautiful! :)

    Wow… Outstanding pottery in his Etsy store. I would be stealing pieces out of the kiln and leaving some spare broken pieces in their place. Do you think he would believe that they exploded in firing! ;)

    Hard to pick one fave, since I love bowls and cups, but I have to say… the teapots knock my socks off!! How long does it take him to do those? They are incredible!

    My favorite piece on RM Pottery’s Etsy site is the porcelain serving bowl with turquoise celadon and bright red glazes. This would be perfect as a large water dish for all my rescue animals that I saved along with Mrs. D-N-I … what do you have to say to that @Alexander’s Mommy??!!
