Mermaid’s Purse ~ Sleds


These soap sleds by Mermaid’s Purse are a favorite gift in the shop both to give and to receive!  Each piece is hand-built slab pottery made on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The glazes vary on each sled and mimic earth- in deep greens and browns, sea- in rich azure blues, and sky- with colors ranging from the palest of blues to the deepest navy.

Color and placement of ornament will vary.  If you have a particular sled in mind please specify and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Mermaid’s Purse was founded in 2003 on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The name is derived from a nautical term where a shark egg becomes attached to seaweed or kelp and washes ashore after hatching.  All of the pottery is either hand built or wheel thrown, and uses lead-free glazes.
