simple elegance. happy harvest.

‘Tis the season for gardening, dining alfresco, and preserving. My garden is in full swing, enjoying sunny days and cool nights. I have combatted the squash bugs, tilled, weeded and staked, and I am thrilled to be harvesting an abundance of beautiful fruits and vegetables. This year, I am diving into the art of preserving. Taking guidance from some of my community garden mates, I have been gifted some incredible recipes and resources for savory, sweet and downright unusual treats. Part of this design experience is the vessel in which these glorious goodies are displayed. Preserved for consuming at a later date yes, they are so packed full of color, texture and anticipation, that they are worthy of beautiful containment. I found these stunningly simple WECK jars to be the perfect solution. Graceful in form, and well designed in function. Happy canning.

    Weck jars are the prettiest! But you now, after a few uses, the clips start to chip at the glass :(
