On the 5th Day of Christmas – C2C Gallery Style

Ceramic bakers by Richard Aerni

Today’s featured items are ceramic bakers by Richard Aerni. I met Richard more than 15 years ago at Vermont Clay Studio. I would see him at different shows across the country. When, I opened C2C in Grand Haven, he and I talked. Richard graciously agreed to become one of my artists. Since 2011, his functional pottery has become many of our customer’s favorite handmade pieces.

How would I use these serving pieces?

  • One of my favorite uses is for serving a beef roast nestled in carrots and tomatoes
  • Scalloped potatoes
  • A fillet of sockeye salmon drizzled with a mustard and parsley sauce surrounded by red potatoes, asparagus, and miniature portobello mushrooms
  • Three lines of sushi
  • A pesto pasta dish
  • One hand blown glass ornament or several collected over the years.
  • Succulents planted in the center.
  • I would suggest sand placed in the bottom and then three pillar candles of different heights but that seems a shame to hide the crystals growing in his glazes throughout the serving bowls. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.
