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 involved walking and 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.

Each item description will include it's estimated shipping time. Many items are made to order and take 3-4 weeks to produce before they can be shipped.

I am happy to ship internationally as well, each listing should be about to calculate the cost for you under the shipping tab. I am happy to help if you have questions or run in to trouble calculating.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am to provide local pick up. I have two options for pick up. I recently move to Champlin (next to Brooklyn Park), so we can arrange a pick up from there most days or evenings. I know that Champlin can be a bit of a hike for some people, so the other option is to pick up from a gallery space I share in NE Minneapolis in the Northrup King Building, however this is only available Saturdays between 12-4pm.

If you live locally and would like to save shipping cost, please email me to receive a promo code to remove the shipping charges, and arrange a time for picking it up.
