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.

To begin, this is not a ‘How-To’ guide on barrel firing. It is more of a ‘Let’s Try This and See What Happens’ story. Some of you reading this blog may have alternate, and, perhaps even better methods you use … Continue reading
Just wanted to post some photos here of the workshop I just came from out in Montana at The Archie Bray Foundation. I found out this past Summer while visiting Wally’s studio in Wales, that he was planning on attending … Continue reading
While I can’t really say this was my first firing, these are my first pots I’ve ever had fired in the gas kiln. I should get to help fire the kiln (ie. learn) some time at the end of March, … Continue reading
Some of you may remember my blog post on the ‘tape measure’ tools, I did a while back, well, these are another type of sgraffito tool easily made and cheaply made, from things right around your studio. Last week, knowing … Continue reading
