I'm an American who makes pots in Vienna, Austria.

I'm a potter based in Vienna, Austria.

I grew up in Minnesota, USA, and via a few continents and a few countries made my way westwards and forwards. Now I'm assembling and arranging the influences I picked up along the way, turning them into a cup or a bowl that you can use.

I started working with clay in 2013; and along the way have worked in university spaces, my kitchen, and now have my own workshop outfitted with my kick wheel, kiln, all manner of clays and glazes and white concrete walls.

Thanks for visiting. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a message.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All of my pots are fired to stoneware temperatures; that is, in excess of 1240˚C (2264˚F). This high temperature makes the glaze and clay waterproof and strong. "Stone"ware for a reason. Unless otherwise noted, all items are dishwasher safe. However, I do recommend washing by hand to protect your investment.

Some of the glazes may develop small cracks that become more obvious with use. This is a natural product of the glazes and glazing process, called crazing, and only adds to the pot's handmade character.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please ensure a secure shipping address, because I cannot be held liable for theft or loss of a package.

I use recycled packaging materials as much as is possible. Shipping is not environmentally friendly, and so I wish to reduce my impact as I am able to. At the same time: I pack my work securely, just as I would want to receive it. However, in the unlikely case your pot arrives damaged, I will happily exchange it for a similar pot of equal value.

Sizing details

I do my best to accurately represent all my work, in words and pictures. However, because each piece is unique, dimensions are approximate. Please allow for slight variations in size, shape, and color, consistent with the piece's handmade nature.
