Mezuzah Giveaway with Turtle Lane Pottery

Enter to win a set of handmade mezuzahs for your home! | Land of Honey

It didn't take long after stumbling into the Turtle Lane Pottery shop to become #obsessed. Take a look for yourself and see why...do you see this ascetic? Gorgeous and functional. Handmade and lovely. The colors. The designs. Pretty much everything I can see being at home in my kitchen. I'll wash my berries in that colander, put my challah on the shalom plate, use the cutest olive server ever, and make my tea for Scripture study or a friend chat in those mugs, please and thank you! Corrine surprised me with a beautiful, handmade mezuzah so I'm one step closer to owning everything. Ha!

Beautiful handmade mezuzahs from Turtle Lane Pottery | Land of Honey

If you're not familiar, a mezuzah is the traditional application of Deuteronomy 6:9, which tells us to have the words of YHWH on the doorposts of our homes. A passage of Scripture is written on paper and then rolled up and placed in the mezuzah before you mount it on your door frame. It works as a reminder of the commandments for us and also a talking piece for visitors that come over. They come in all sorts of sizes, colors, and styles and honestly I haven't seen more beautiful ones than the ones that Turtle Lane potter Corrine Garcia makes. So, you can also up the cuteness factor at your house. :) I am super excited (and also a tad jealous) that one of you will be receiving a set of these beautiful mezuzahs! (Enter to win at the end of this post.)

Interview with Corinne Garcia from Turtle Lane Pottery

Tell us a little about yourself...
I was drawn to art at an early age in Switzerland, when I was introduced to clay for the first time. I will never forget those wonderful moments at a local pottery studio. I then picked up clay work on and off as a young adult and now follow my dream by owning Turtle Lane LLC, a small pottery studio in the heart of Oklahoma. I currently focus on functional pottery, which is available inside our artist studio, in local stores and Etsy. I believe in cultivating creativity and encourage my students to leave their expectations behind and just enjoy the process of creating, which is a truly therapeutic and enjoyable process. I love the fact that others actually use my work as part of their daily routines. I think of the many conversations they have while sharing a cup of coffee or tea using my pottery.  I am passing along a little bit of my love to them, since  each of my pieces are created with the most loving of intentions.

Do you have a favorite product that you have designed?
My favorite product line is my fruit bowls. I still use the same technique I used as a 10 year old girl when I made my very first one.

Can you tell us more about the process of making mezuzahs?
I started making mezuzahs when I first needed a set for my own home. It quickly became one of my most treasured creations. I build them from stoneware clay and then decorate them with my handmade stamps, leaves and twigs, or my grandmother’s old jewelry pieces. While creating I am thinking of the people who might one day use them in their homes and be reminded every day of our Father’s Love for us.

How has this work impacted your faith?
Creating mezuzahs has helped me to connect deeply with my Creator. I started to realize that following his instructions is a beautiful thing to do. It has helped me think of him and his plan for me while I listen to worship music and create each mezuzah to become one unique piece for someone who loves the Father. It warms my heart to think that people around the world will enter their home and be reminded to love him with all their soul, and with all their might.

Turtle Lane's mezuzahs measure around six inches long and one and a half to two inches wide. As you can see in the shop there are a variety of colors and designs so chances are you can find something that would go well in your home. We are giving away the beautiful ones seen below. Doesn't the red one remind you of a rose garden? The bird comes up in many of Turtle Lane's products and it brings to mind His Eye is on the Sparrow for me.
