Pottery vs. plastic

My love of pottery spans many years. I have lots of handmade pottery in my home. But my love of Cold Mountain Pottery directly relates to a lifestyle choice I made about six years ago.

Cold Mountain Pottery mugs. Handmade, Montana made with tea by the Montana Tea and Spice Trading Company.
On sale – Cold Mountain Pottery mugs + tea by the Montana Tea and Spice Trading Company, $29. And/or gift certificates for Reiki, $55 (Reg. $60), until Dec. 24, 2017.

Back then I decided that I no longer wanted to drink from plastic. I’d been reading a lot about how toxic it is, especially when it’s heated. I just didn’t like the chemical flavor you taste when drinking from plastic.

So I started drinking from glass instead.

I purchased a couple of special glass water bottles to refill throughout the day. When I went home at night, I’d pour my filtered water, cool, no ice, into a clean “beer” glass – you know the kind.

As I made this small change, I didn’t start seeing any overnight health miracles. But this lifestyle choice did make me feel better about what I was putting into my body.

Eventually I started replacing all my plastic food storage with glass containers as well (which is a story for another time).

Fast forward a few years, my love of Montana-made Cold Mountain Pottery was born!

I ran across the mugs when the company where I work during the day purchased the Cold Mountain Pottery shop in Billings, Mont. Samples of the mugs were brought into the office. I chose a sample that had a picture of an elk on it.

Which would you choose?

While I liked my special glass bottle, I noticed that I liked my new elk mug even more. There was just something about drinking from my new mug!

Lovingly molded into a special drinking vessels, Cold Mountain Pottery mugs definitely have a special energy to them. I feel like I am drinking from a magical cup!

They’re handmade and Montana made with clay processed at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena. Both the designs and the the glaze are created by Montana artists who work at the shop. Cold Mountain Pottery also hires people with disabilities.

Not only does my elk mug still sit on my desk today, but I’ve also added to my Cold Mountain collection at home. I use them every day.

Because I love these mugs so much, I’ve decided to pick some up from the pottery shop and make them available for you!

Right now, you can find the mugs at Woods’ Rose Wellness Center in Butte, Mont., 124 S. Main. They are $29 each and include tea (so dreamy) from the Montana Tea and Spice Trading Company in Missoula.

Along with the mugs I am also offering Reiki gift certificates. They’ll be on special until Dec. 24 for $55 each (Reg. $60).

You can purchase the mugs and gift certificates separately or together. They’re definitely a great gift!

Please feel free to give me a call if you have questions, 406.491.2057.
