Ella’s Pottery + A Chicken Recipe

February 26, 2014

A year and a half ago my friend Meredith was married in the beautiful Virginia countryside.

Foodblog-6937

The wedding welcome bags included a beautiful mug made by Meredith’s Aunt Ella, who we got to know over the course of the wedding weekend. Ella and I talked about how she could get her pottery business online.

Foodblog-7110

A year later, she has launched Soap Creek Pottery.

“Where did you get that bowl” is one of KERF’s most frequently asked questions. Ella invited me to share her site with all you bowl and mug lovers and sent me a few pieces to highlight.

Her pottery is gorgeous (love the colors!) and most of them have a function – “Art with a purpose,” as Ella says. Everything is made by hand so now two pieces are alike.

This sweet bowl is actually an egg cooker! With a lid and holes for steam, you can microwave your egg for an easy poached effect. I’ve cooked a few eggs already, and while one blew the lid off, the others have been great!

This plate is a garlic grater and dipping dish in one.

IMG_4055

Of course I love oatmeal bowls : ) The leaf is a nice touch!

IMG_4059

This is a French butter keeper. We store our butter in a cabinet instead of the fridge so it stays soft, and this keeps it super soft and spreadable!

IMG_4058IMG_4057

And finally this crazy looking bowl is actually a Tipsy Chicken cooker! You might know it as “Coke can chicken” or “Beer can chicken.” The pottery is a bit prettier than a can : ) {And you can also use it as a serving bowl if you wish.}

Matt and I put it to the test for dinner one night.

We filled the bottom with sweet potatoes, carrots and celery plus a lot of thyme and garlic. Then we filled the “can” in the middle with home brewed beer. I’d recommend a good bit around the veggies too so they cook well. {You can always use broth instead of beer or wine.}

Mr. Chicken went in with more garlic and herbs plus some lemon.

Per Ella’s directions, we baked him for a little under 2 hours at 350*, which was right about when our thermometer indicated he was baked.

The chicken came out perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Delish!

But of course my favorite part was the juicy veggies underneath!

Ella offered to give away a gift credit towards any one of her pieces up to $20. Enter below!

I work at a college and the students have a sale of the previous year’s projects around the holidays. I always snag an item or two. I can’t wait to check out Ella’s items. They are stunning! It is such an awesome thing to have handmade pottery to use.

Functional pottery is the best! Friends of mine in Ohio make similar items. I like the bowles with leaves on them; it makes for a unique handle!

11 Ella March 3, 2014 at 11:57 pm

You’re exactly right Bethany. Handmade stoneware pottery is kind of like “comfort food” … it just makes you feel good to eat and drink out of a handmade piece. Thanks for your interest.

Beautiful pottery! I have been wanting to get better plates and bowls for a long time now, but my husband and I are still doing the apartment life thing… I’m so scared they would get broken in a move. Maybe I should get over it and just treat myself!

16 Jen Sprague February 26, 2014 at 8:37 am

Just realized I need to mention my favorite product to enter the giveaway – how do you choose?! I truly love them all. I’m gravitating toward the 3 part relish dish and the sponge holder – I’d love for my sponge to be sitting pretty rather than looking boring on the edge of the sink. ;)

Reply

17 Ella March 4, 2014 at 12:01 am

I think the relish dish is one of the most versatile pieces I have. I made it originally for relishes or condiments but my customers give me the best ideas … taco fixings, baked potato fixings, nuts, m & m’s, etc. What are your ideas for it?

18 Allegra February 26, 2014 at 8:38 am

It’s so hard to pick just one – they’re all beautiful! I guess I’ll have to go with the salsa bowl and 2-piece tray set. I really can’t decide between the two.

Kath–to elaborate on the website issues:

For example, I got an email notification that you replied to my original comment but now as I try to reply to that, I’m looking at 0 comments under this post. So as I’m typing this it looks like I’m the first person to leave a comment.

On the KERF homepage it showed 77 comments when I brought the web page up, but then when you click to add a comment or read comments, it shows zero. I know a few days ago, I was seeing the same post for a few days. Earlier today I was unable to use the rafflecopter widget above because it disappeared then kept refreshing or something. Hope this info helps! Or at least makes some sort of sense. LOL Good luck and thanks!

Just FYI, I also use the brie baker as a small casserole dish or a serving dish for a side vegetable. It’s also great with a cracker dish nestled around it. Thanks for your interest.

I love the French Butter keeper. I make all of our bread at home, and we love bread and butter as a snack. I’d love to have softened butter handy at all times.

As a matter of fact, Kari, I make mine with white wine and fresh rosemary in the center cup, I sprinkle the chicken real heavy inside and out with Montreal Steak Seasoning. The liquid just infuses the chicken from the inside but the skin gets real crispy. Deeelish!!!

I’ve cooked a lot of eggs in the microwave in my day. If you pierce both the white and yolk (you don’t have to break it, just stick a fork in once), that should prevent the exploding effect.

I love the tipsy chicken cooker! We love to make beer can chicken on the grill, but live in Maine where we clearly can’t grill year round (and our beer can chicken contraption is too tall to fit in the oven). This looks lower profile, so we could prepare this delicious recipe during the winter, as well!

I love the tipsy chicken cooker and everything just looks homey, heartwarming and absolutely beautiful. I really want to try your chicken recipe at home and serve it together with these amazing heralth bars that I recently discovered. These snack bars give one meal to one child in an underdeveloped country for each chocolate bar they sell. I would love for more moms to know more about social entrepreneurship and about these types of products.
