Quality Handcrafted Pottery
Purposefully designed and lovingly handcrafted ...

I am a full-time Studio Potter and Ceramic Arts Instructor, and I am elbow deep in love with all things clay!
My mission is to make your everyday moments beautiful, one lump of clay at a time.
I offer a wide selection of functional and decorative pottery, ceramic arts instruction, studio and kiln rental services, and an information-packed blog right here from my website.

PLEASE NOTE: I'm taking a break from production to focus on teaching, design work and materials testing. During this time, my internet access will be limited. I will respond to any emails as soon as I'm able.

The Bonnie Ann Collection
A collection of my soda-fired bowls made using techniques taught to me by a soul sister in clay who recently passed away.
I'll be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every piece in this collection to the Bonnie Ann Burnett Verge Permaculture Scholarship Fund in her memory.
Bare Clay Raku & Alternative Work
I love bare clay alternative fired pieces! I create decorative fine art ceramic pieces including horsehair & feather raku, naked raku, and sea urchin raku as well as saggar fired vessels.
Here, you'll see some of my favorite pieces, all one-of-a-kind, and all available for purchase. Enjoy!
A collection of work created in 2019 at a salt-firing workshop with Jack Troy. Items include vases, flower bricks, tea bowls, bottle vases, crocks and more!
This was a magical week of discovery for me, where I explored a looser style, experimented with a new clay body, and participated in two salt kiln firings at the wonderful Saratoga Clay Arts Center.
I love to make (and teach) raku pottery techniques!
The immediate gratification of firing a piece, pulling it from the kiln at 1850 degrees, igniting combustibles and then seeing your results in less than an hour is magical! So are the lustrous surfaces of these glazed raku decorative vessels, chosen especially for this collection. Enjoy!
Love Blue Pottery?
If you love blue pottery, you're in good company and THIS is the collection for you!
I've consolidated some of my favorite cobalt blue items into one place.
Find functional and decorative pieces here, including some unique glaze combinations and an octopus that will be the delight of your family dinners for years to come. Enjoy!
Fall in Love with Browns
These pots take brown to a whole new level! Combining my signature, hand-mixed glazes in different ways, I achieve some unique surface character on many of these decorative and functional pieces. You'll find items for every day and items for special occasions here, and fall (back?) in love with browns!
