As we considered the appropriate staff gift to purchase, we realized that there are still several opportunities for summer weddings before the leaves begin to turn. For these occasions, we’ve selected a few gifts you might want to consider.

Ron Hinkle’s hand-blown glassware is a favorite of wedding couples. These ice screamers, which come in a variety of colors, will serve many sweet treats.

The bride and groom might enjoy Jeff Fetty’s calla lily candlesticks. These candlesticks are his original design and are made from iron, finished in natural black and range in height from 18 to 20 inches. Sold in sets of three, these candlesticks make an elegant display for the couple’s mantle or table. Add a MountainMade taper candle.

MountainMade recently received an order from our potter, Lambros. He creates functional pottery pieces in a variety of popular colors. His coffee mugs, soup cups, casseroles, bowls, etc., are certain to be enjoyed for years to come.

But if it’s Blenko you want to give, MountainMade will have a new selection by Friday. Check the website or give us a call.

Celebrate Graduation With The Perfect Present http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/celebrate-graduation-with-the-perfect-present http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/celebrate-graduation-with-the-perfect-present#comments Mon, 03 May 2010 17:00:39 +0000 Heidi Haldeen http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/?p=740 It’s been a cool spring here on the mountain, but we are ever reminded of the evolution of time. For many here in West Virginia and around the United States, a new journey is about to begin.

Students are preparing for final examinations and graduation. Many are preparing to venture into the work force in pursuit of their dreams and others still will be continuing their academic careers.

It is a time of mixed emotion for the student, family and friends. All of these graduating individuals will soon be starting anew and needing all the help they can get as they begin to make their mark in the world.

We wish these young adults an adventurous and joyful road ahead. We have selected a few items that may help make their transition from youth to adulthood an easier one, all beautifully made tools for the home and office.

Four lamps by Annie Simcoe, in three colors and two patterns, are available through MountainMade. Let the light shine in and remember the threads that bind us together. Each lamp is priced at $150.
