My love for Frances Palmer‘s pottery began back in 2006, when I first saw it in Martha Stewart Weddings, and fell in love with the timelessly whimsical look of her vases and cake plates. Today, not only do I get to share some of my favorites with you, but I also get to giveaway $125 toward the Pearl Collection!

Any of these gorgeous handmade pieces would make for an incredibly special wedding gift, don’t you think? What bride wouldn’t love to receive a ruffly edged cake plate or polka dotted vase?

Frances has also recently launched the Pearl Collection, which maintains the charming irregularities of her handmade pots, at a price that your wallet will love. Every piece is hand cast, pressed and glazed in one of the only remaining ceramic factories in the United States, and they’re the perfect choice for your bridal registry! And as Frances says, it’s low maintenance art: not only are they dishwasher and microwave safe, but they’re all oven proof up to 475 degrees – that would be a very pretty casserole, don’t you think?

Perfect both for entertaining and for everyday, the Pearl Collection comes in five colors and everything is glazed to order.¬†Couldn’t you just imagine mixing and matching these colors and styles for the most fabulous table?

Whether you’re looking for an alternative registry option, or trying to find the perfect wedding or holiday gift, you cannot go wrong with Frances Palmer Pottery. There’s something for every budget, and each piece makes for a special modern heirloom.

To win $125 toward the Pearl Collection, all you need to do is head over to the Frances Palmer site and browse around, then come back here and leave a comment letting us know which Pearl piece is your favorite. You have until 5:00PM PST on Thursday to leave your comment, and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on Friday. Also, we’d love to know if you decide to register for Frances Palmer pieces, so do share!
