ClaymorePottery's Shop Announcement

Great news from Claymore Pottery!! I'm in the process of moving into a larger studio space that will allow me to produce work at a much faster rate! My very small, previous studio put too many limitations on my work schedule ... just no place to put things. Once up and running, I will begin posting work on a regular schedule. Check back periodically for updates. Remember, whether my work, or that of other ETSY craftspeople, using artist made items will add pazazz to everyday living. Best wishes for a joyful holiday season, and as always, thanks for visiting my ETSY shop.

ClaymorePottery's Shop Policies


Welcome to Bud1 pottery. I have always been fascinated by the eclectic nature of art or how looking, studying, and discussions with other artist can impact ones work. As a student of clay, I have investigated where ideas come from and spend nearly as much time tinkering in my sketch book as I do producing. I continually have ceramic magazines and books in hand in hopes of expanding my visual vocabulary.

My creative process might be limited to sitting in a room, looking around, and drawing 6 ideas from that room. It may begin with the shape of a shadow on the wall, an architechural detail, or a combination of forms found on items in the room. Concepts emerge as I visually brainstorm, modify, and allow ideas to evolve.

The building process is guided by a simple principle ... there is danger in overtouching the clay. I want my work to have a freshness and honesty where the viewer is lead to believe that I make it look easy. The imperfections, occasional blemishes, and distortions in the work is the result of being hand-made rather than robotically produced by a machine.


I accept paypal, a fast and easy way to get things done. I also accept money orders and personal checks. Items will be shipped as soon as the check has been processed.
