Meet Jennifer Burke. Potter, wife, and proud mother of three awesome young men. “I work from my home studio, with our dog Honey keeping me company. I love what I do – working in clay rarely feels like actual work – I count myself lucky!
Life is full of small rituals, and pottery often plays a role in these daily activities. That morning cup of coffee tastes better in your favorite mug. That bowl of ice cream is creamier when eaten out of a favorite handmade bowl. It’s reassuring to know that your keys are always in the little dish on the table in the front hall. I design and create my pottery with this in mind – to serve a useful role in the user’s life and bring beauty to their every day.
The lead-free glazes I use are inspired by my childhood home on Long Island, NY and my love of the outdoors; cool green, warm sand, vibrant turquoise. The textured patterns I often add to my pots are inspired by my love for historic textile patterns from around the world.
My pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed – to bring comfort and pleasure to life – to make your every day a little special.”
This giveaway is for a hand-thrown stoneware casserole. Glazed in a lovely food-safe glaze. These mighty useful casseroles are up to just about any task. Use them to serve dip, to bake a casserole, to hold k-cups next to the Keurig, to serve popcorn or snacks, or as a fruit bowl.
Jennifer Burke Pottery’s casserole dishes are microwave and dishwasher safe and can be used to bake casseroles in the oven (never put a cold/frozen crock into a hot oven – best to put a room temperature crock into a room temperature oven and then turn the oven on).
So go ahead and enter! Then jump over to Jennifer Burke Pottery’s Shop and dream about which stoneware casserole you will choose when you win (value up to $40)!
After you pick your beautiful casserole, you might find yourself in the mood to cook. Might I suggest this incredible Goat Cheese Lasagna, or maybe these Sausage Stuffed Bell Peppers, and definitely this Spinach Stuffed Cod with Pomodoro Sauce!

My son used to attend Jennifer Burke’s pottery classes! I have seen her work up close, and it is beautiful! And, how awesome would it be for a piece of her pottery to arrive at our new house in OH. My guy would be so surprised!!

Absolutely a work of love and pride.
So pretty, I love the jewelry dish.
So pretty. I’d love to own one for myself.
I love it. So creative!
The batter bowl in blue from the Etsy webshop is stunning.
It reminds me of an elevated, and to-be-used-indoors version of flecked enamel camping cookware.
… making it glamping (glamour-camping), but I would not let it out of the house.
I envision large batches of coconut chocolate chip pancakes, or macadamia nut waffles being mixed up in this beauty.
p.s. Jennifer, I found the Jennifer Burke Pottery Etsy shop, but not via the Twitter link. It says “page not found.” Wanted you to know. LOVE your items.
Thanks so much for your kind words and for the heads up about the link Kymberly – btw I love your new word “glamping” too funny!
Your pottery is beautiful, and I love the colors and the versality, I love the design and that they are meant to be used not just looked at.
I agree! Your pieces are so lovely! You are so talented.
What beautiful pottery! Such a talent! Thank you for the giveaway!

Really love the pottery. Totally in love with the little dish for rings with places to dangle earrings around the edges. My ring dish and earring holder are always overflowing. Loved the combination.
