Foraging mushrooms on Vancouver Island is so fun and is what inspires this line of pottery. Have you ever eaten a fresh Chantarelle mushroom that was forged that same day? It is like eating the freshest, most tender cut of chicken. So many of these foraged delicacies can be found on Vancouver Island if you know where to find them. If you are foraging please get some instruction on how to cut them so as not to disturb the roots and this will leave spores to carry on growing again for the next season!
Check out some websites or You Tube videos like this one for more information on species identification and harvesting tips.
Now getting back to the pottery, wouldn’t this dish make a nice centerpiece for your table? It has so many uses from hot food out of the oven to a nice salad or dessert. Pottery also makes a wonderful wedding gift and this would be great for the forager in your life!
