I operate a working pottery studio in Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania specializing in wheel thrown and altered functional stoneware pottery. Stoneware clay is durable enough for ovenware, yet just as beautiful to display. My pots are created with form, function and beauty in mind. The glazes you see are hand mixed and formulated for food safety, as well as being microwave and dishwasher friendly. Current pots may be purchased through the store or local pickup, and custom orders are encouraged.

Well I had some interesting results from the kiln loading today. I think I always hold my breath a little when I open the kiln. Nothing horrible ever happened but for some reason, I always think it will. Thank you … Continue reading
Always a tiring day, especially when mixing up two additional five gallon buckets of glaze before glazing and loading the kiln. Not so bad you think? Maybe, but the kiln is up a flight of stairs and out in the … Continue reading
