white house gifts

There is nothing better than that of having hand-made gifts at the ready. These lovely hand-made pots were made by Catherine White for First Lady Obama to give as gifts. The canisters are to hold loose chamomile tea. The gifts are symbolic of the White House garden.
Can you imagine the thrill of making each one by hand for such an honorable order. As an artist, I grapple with giving and truly feel that a hand-made gift is such a special treat. Do you have any plans to give hand-made gifts this holiday.

Let’s share ideas for giving hand-made this year. If you have something you would like to share, please feel free to contact me. I would love to see what other artisans have in store to give.
