It was quite by accident that I discovered the world of Teardrops. I was looking for a small cargo trailer to transport my pottery to shows and deliveries and ran across "Little Guy" Teardrops in San Diego.
Wow, what a great fit this would be! I could use it as a mini-cargo trailer and camper (as I can no longer backpack and have grown tired of pitching a tent and sleeping on an uncomfortable cot.)
After delivering some free mugs to my first gathering in Why, AZ (by Ajo), I realized the whole adventure was a wonderful opportunity to make potter for Teardrops, Tiny, and Vintage trailers - while also having so fantastically good times with new friends. I now attend Teardrop gatherings.
Traveling in comfort with my "Silver Shadow" Little Guy Teardrop, I am frequently on the road. My husband continues to be supportive of my solo trips, especially when I am with groups of helpful, delightful people. I am inspired to have some creative fun, developing a variety of pottery items that are useful and sturdy for trailer travelers.
Below are some examples of what is available. Special orders are welcomed. Choose from a variety of colors, designs, carved backgrounds, type of trailer, etc.
~ Prices do not include shipping and handling and vary according to size and complexity.
Lidded potter ranges in height from about 5 - 8 inches. Prices range from $45.00 to $70.00. These pots can be used in the oven and make great containers for coffee, knick-knacks, and other "stuff."
A very popular traveling item, these mugs are sturdy (if not dropped on concrete), microwave and dishwasher safe, and versatile in use. Fill with any beverage. Prices for these terrific pieces are $25.00 each. Let me know if you have a color and design preference.
Another very popular traveling item, these small bowls are great for beating an egg or whatever you wish to fill it with. Bowls sizes vary - prices start at $25.00 each. Again, please let me know if you have a color, design and size preference.
Don't forget your furry traveling pal or Fido at home. These water bowls are designed to keep the water much cooler than the outside air! Based on an old Anasazi process, the water bowls are unglazed so the water percolates slowly through the grooved surface, like an evaporative cooler. The bottom inside of the bold is glazed for easier wash-up. $25.00
These small platters and chip n' dip plates (about 10-12 inches in diameter) make serving munchies with your trailer pals fun and convenient. $40.00
Tiles with hooks for those keys that you misplace. These convenient helpers come with one, two, or three hooks and a heavy-duty velcro backing. I put one in my galley and one in the cabin. Also, they're handing for hanging a pair of reading glasses.
Pick your trailer design and color.
1 hook - $10.00
2 hook - $15.00
3 hook - $20.00
4 inch and 6 inch round, square, octagon shapes available.
4 inch - $20.00
6 inch - $30.00
These little luminaries look great on your camping table. They come with a battery light or you can use a real candle. $35.00
Write a description and include a price for each.
Please email Mary with your detailed request.
Please allow for 3 - 4 weeks for orders. The clay process takes much time from start to finish.
I also fire only when the kiln is full. I have three electric kilns of different capacities, and fire in a gas kiln on another site.
