Fringe and Fettle Ceramics

I am the one-woman show behind Fringe and Fettle Ceramics, everything little part of the business is done by me. In 2011 I was working full time when I took a blind leap and quit my job to pursue pottery. I moved up to the north woods of Wisconsin to my family’s cabin and did nothing but make pots for the next 6 months. It was fantastic.

My studio is now is Champlin, MN. My husband and I converted our two car garage into a pottery studio and I love it! My commute involves walking about 10 feet across the driveway.

I make things that I love. That’s the secret. It sounds kind of dumb and simple, but it’s true. I think for a while I was really caught up in trying to make what other people wanted, what would sell well. But it wasn’t until I threw that out the window and started making things that I wanted, that I loved, that I really found my style.

My forms are soft and playful, telling you where to touch, where to look. A pattern hides under the belly of a curve, or dances quietly around a rim. I’ve been enamored with texture for a while now. I am compelled by the voice it has, and the interactive quality it presents. It invites you in, asking you to hold it, to use it. I am influenced by the romanticized atmosphere the kitchen creates; of family meals and childhood memories, of beauty in the everyday encounters.

Welcome! Thank you for checking out my shop. I make food-focused, functional pottery. Everything I make is food safe--I never use lead glazes. I recommend hand washing for my pieces, primarily to protect fragile handles and rims from clinking against other items inside a dishwasher. Items with gold added are NOT microwave safe, and it will be stated clearly in the item description is is not safe. Everything else can go safely in the microwave.

Pieces are made one at a time, by hand. This ensures that you will be getting a truly unique, heirloom quality piece.

I am happy to ship directly to gift recipients and include a complimentary gift note. Please convey your requests in the note to seller box during the Etsy checkout process.

I love hearing from my customers, so feel free to contact me with any questions.
