    Among the many benefits of using handmade pottery in our daily lives, it can help us to feel connected to the earth. This artist, Melissa Weiss, digs up the clay herself from her land in the Arkansas Ozarks. The ritual of excavating the clay from the ground lends a profound quality to her pots and makes them very special to use and live with. I've kept this one on my writing desk for years, which is where it's pictured here.
