Andy Boswell’s mugs are not only good for a hot cup of tea, coffee or cocoa…. they’re pretty great for a cold ale to toast a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day as well!
… or how about a green smoothie in one of Andy’s mugs?I made this extra green smoothie as follows…
Throw all of the following into a blender, just make sure everything is cut into blender friendly sized pieces, and blend until smooth.
1 cucumber (about 1 – 1 1/2 cups)
3 kale leaves (about 1/2 cup)
1 – 2 tsp. raw honey
1 tbl. chlorophyll (optional for extra nutrition and extra green!)
a handful of ice
Count your blessings, not your woes. ~ Irish Proverb
Have a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Warm up these late-winter days with a satisfying chicken soup beautifully presented in an eye catching handcrafted bowl made by my son Andrew Boswell! (Chicken soup made by me!)
This is one of my son’s fantastic soup bowls filled with the chicken soup I made last night. The bowl is high fired grolleg porcelain glazed with Andrew’s celedon and black glaze. You may not be able to duplicate the bowl yourself, but perhaps the soup. If you would like to give it a try… I made it approximately as follows. I say approximately because I don’t always measure when I cook!
The soup ingredients include (approximately)…
6 chicken legs
6 chicken thighs
The following vegetables cut into bite size pieces…
4 – 5 sweet onions
8 – 12 carrots
8 – 10 potatoes
3 – 4 tbls. Better Than Bouillion Organic Chicken Base
2 tbls. dulse flakes
2 tbls. parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. tumeric
2 tbls. olive oil
salt and pepper
I boiled the chicken in water until the meat began to come off the bone and then set it aside to cool. Once cooled, I skimmed off the fat, picked the meat from the bones and set the meat aside. I returned the skimmed broth to an 8 quart pot, added the onions, added water and turned the burner to a medium flame. Then I cut the carrots and added them. Next, I cut and added the potatoes and the Better Than Bouillion. I made sure I had more than enough water to cover everything but not quite filling the pot. I added the meat back in when the potatoes were just about cooked, and a bit of salt and pepper. Once the potatoes were cooked, I added the olive oil and it was ready to serve!
That’s my “approximate” soup recipe. Tweak it as needed! You’ll have to visit the gallery or send me an email to purchase one of Andy’s gorgeous bowls.:-)

I wish you all a happy spring and invite you to venture out in this warmer weather to see Andrew’s newest porcelain ceramic pieces! There is a strong possibility that you will find that perfect unique wedding or shower gift in this body of new work.
Andrew has been busy at the wheel and has produced some beautiful and functional bowls, vases and jars which he will be premièring on May 5th and 6th. The pieces vary in size and price and many have surfaces enhanced with hand painted floral theme illustrations. Showcased also will be a selection of Andrew’s teapots which always make an impressive gift.
Join us for refreshments at the Saturday evening artist’s reception or stop by any other time over the weekend to peruse the new work. Andrew will be there to meet and greet you to discuss his newest creations and special orders.
We look forward to seeing you then!
The old version of the shopping cart is working once again. I will hopefully be able to get the new updated version to work soon and add USPS rates to the UPS rates so you can have more shipping options when ordering online.
Thanks for your patience!
Crystaline glaze, grolleg porcelain jar, about 14" tall, by Andrew Boswell and Phil Hamling $480-
This exquisite grolleg porcelain piece is a combination of pottery, chemistry and geology. It was thrown on the potter’s wheel by Andrew Boswell. The glazing process was a collaborative effort between Andrew and Phil Hamling using Phil’s technically intricate crystalline glaze methods. Andrew’s fluid form is the perfect canvas for Phil’s ceramic engineering expertise. When this process is done precisely correct, crystals grow in the glaze surface during the firing of the pot. The patterns formed look very similar to the crystal patterns of frost on a window pane.
If you are interested in purchasing this piece please email a note and your phone number to email@example.com and I will give you a call back. (The online catalog and shopping cart are still down. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.)
