Announcement   Welcome to our world of creating and crafting!

We are a group of five potters working together on an organic farm in upstate New York.

Inspired by the nature that we see around us, we often draw influences from the leaves, flowers and food that is grown all around our studio. We have also added a line of pottery made from clay harvested from the bottom of the small pond just short walk up a hill from where we create these wares. This clay is fired at a lower temperature, using less energy and it comes straight from the ground! All of our work is dishwasher and food safe and handmade with great care.

We hope you enjoy looking through our work as much as we like making it!

About

From Chicken Coop Beginnings

Our studio began in the late sixties in the form of an old chicken coop and a few kick-wheels. Over the last few decades, we have built numerous kilns, acquired new wheels, and been home to many artists at different phases in their careers.

We live and work on Western New York's only residential artist's community. Along with the pottery studio, there is a woodshop, weaving and sewing studio, graphics department, and a boat shop, as well as an organic farm and a few acres of orchards. We are blessed enough to be able to take breaks from the studio to collect the eggs from our chickens, feed the horses, or run out to the peach trees and snag a juicy snack.

Working and living so closely with nature, we feel inspired to create in the image of many of the incredible plants and animals that we encounter daily. We also make some of our pots directly from the land that we live on. In the warmer months, we put on our swimsuits and jump into the pond that is just a few minutes walk from the studio, and we dig up handfuls of clay to bring back and turn into functional ceramics.

We love what we do, and we are happy to be able to do it. Thanks for all of your support.
