Travis Berning is a ceramic artist living in Dillsboro, North Carolina. He has been a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild since 2004, and recently moved his pottery studio to the River Arts District in Asheville, NC.
Travis's work is functional, high-fired stoneware; he uses earthy-colored glazes, and his pots are recognizable by the imprinted maple leaf on each piece.
This tall oil cruet is glazed in a rich, cinnamon brown, and has a little knob on the back for comfortable holding and pouring. The pottery part of the cruet is approximately 9 inches tall (metal spigot adds 2 inches), and holds approximately 20 oz.
