Tina McCullough, Artist/Designer
I find great joy in creating pieces that commemorate special moments and milestones in life. If you run 5k Races around the Athens area over the past 20 years, you may have quite a collection of Blue Bell Pottery custom designed and carved race awards.
From weddings, anniversaries, retirement to the birth of a child, your custom gift will be cherished for years to come. Call/Text/Email and let’s get your custom order started today.
Baby Belly Bowls are one of my favorite creations. Wet Clay is formed over a third trimester tummy have been one of my favorites since my sister was pregnant with her first baby 18 years ago. Sweet Baby Belly Bowls are ceramic clay bowls created from a pregnant belly to commemorate pregnancy and birth of sweet baby. Sweet Baby Belly Bowls, created in the 3rd trimester, are an endearing keepsake and memorable shower gift. We will collaborate on design and color options. Your bowl will be custom carved with your details and design ideas (baby’s name, family tree, symbolic images, poems, scripture . . . the design possibilities are endless and as sweetly exclusive as your sweet baby). We use only dinnerware safe clay and glazes. Prefer to cast your own belly? Order our Sweet Baby Belly Bowl – Kit today. Casting the shell only takes about 15 minutes. Just ship the shell back to our studio in the box and bubble wrap provided. We will collaborate with you on designs and color options to create an enchanting memento from your casting to commemorate your Gift of Life.
I am dedicated and indebted to clay, and very fortunate to have found such a dynamic medium to channel through and share with others. My work takes many forms from dinnerware, cups, bowls, platters and stemware to more sculptural jars, lamps, vases, masks and sconces. The carving is organic and abstract reflecting memories, surroundings and moods.
