Functional Pottery Inspired by Nature

I started selling my work online after being a potter for several years. It was a great way to reach a wider audience, displaying my work to the online world. I love that someone can find one of my bowls in California, or Alaska! Here people can read about my process and inspirations and hopefully purchase a piece that they will use and enjoy from years to come. I sell a wide variety of functional pots including mugs, cups, plates, vases, jars and teapots. Everything is handmade by me only and each detail is carefully considered in the making process. Making pots bring me joy and it is my hope to share my joy with you!

All pieces are handmade by me and thrown on the wheel using porcelain and stoneware clays. The earth tone variations you see on the surfaces come from the hand carved textures and the soda firing process.  All pieces have food safe glazes, and are microwave and dishwasher safe.
