Local potter creates white wares as unique as snowflakes

Next time you host a dinner party, consider skipping the pastries in favor of a few berries, nestled in the center of petal-shaped porcelain. North Shore artist Anna Kasabian of Snowbound Pottery starts with a ball of clay in the palm of her hand, which she then caresses into uneven forms that are at once delicate and rugged. Bowls resemble flowers, with scalloped edges, and come in varying sizes, all functional and completely one-of-a-kind. Individual berry bowl, $55 at NOA, 88 Charles St., Boston, 857-233-5912, and 86 Commonwealth Ave., Concord, 978-341-0990,
