Announcement    *********** FREE SHIPPING ON ALL PIECES to"the Lower 48" ********

ALL of our pieces are handmade - usually on a pottery wheel. We usually use numerous custom sculpture tools, as well as custom formulated glazes. We use nine
different types of clay - stonewares, porcelain, Raku, red ware, and a few "custom alloys" involving glass and silver...

This unique array of ceramic works is a testament to the time and thought processes of the skilled crafts people that create ceramic pieces in this little company (that was the "art speak" line that all of these things seem to have).

The "dollhouse miniatures" are mostly one inch scale (1" = 12"). The miniature pieces are collected by dollhouse "builders", Fairy Garden folks, and miniature collectors. Other people have TINY VERSIONS OF OUR "REGULAR SIZED PIECES- where an ENTIRE COLLECTION FITS IN A DESKTOP DISPLAY.
Another effective and POPULAR DISPLAY IDEA is the use of an antique or vintage PRINTER"S DRAWER. I n this scenario, your "tiny treasures" fill the individual spaces and the whole unit mounts on the wall.
The pots are fairly decorative in nature, and made with the premise of "miniature believability"- which translates to VERY THIN POTS...VERY thin.

Our "FULL SIZE" POTTERY also covers a wide range of styles, colors, and influences. We make mugs, jugs, bowls, vases, cookie jars, face pots, whimsical bird banks, and a multitude of other pieces...lots of FACE POTS.
The pots are often hand painted with nature based "serene scenes" with trees, cattails, etc. Others are sculpted in some manner after they come off the potter's wheel - "altered thrown pottery". ( We enjoy the creativity that clay allows.)
We also pay homage to TRADITIONAL, TIME-HONORED POTTERY STYLES. Our main areas of "traditional" interest are RED WARE and cobalt blue FOLK ART embellished pots. Those areas on their own could be a lifetime of study...

We also have a group of wearable ceramic pieces such as unique BOLO TIES, face pins, and perfume bottle necklaces (potion pots)....................

There are lots and lots of philosophical "links" and technical attributes to mention...but...really...more to say some other day...

truly collectible one of a kind MINIATURE & FULL-SIZE POTTERY, "jewelry", & FOLK ART

A number of artisans create the pieces featured in this shop. There are "folk art oriented" RED WARE pieces, which include sgrafitto and slip-trailed works , as well as "UGLY JUGS" and simple, utilitarian pots. We also feature a number of RED WARE POTION POTS - which are akin to wearable necklace "medicine bottles" of many cultures. These are offered in both simple and decorative examples. The red ware is offered in both full-size and miniature versions.
Our STONEWARE, PORCELAIN, and RAKU pieces are also featured in "both sizes". These pieces have a vast range in price, color, appeal, and "complexity". There are simple utilitarian bowls and plates, as well as ornately sculpted and colorful bird banks....more to come......need to go make some things........

    Owner, Most Other Roles Too, Head Potter...often The Only One

    I've been making, sculpting, decorating, and miniaturizing pottery for a long time. The magical possibilities of clay keep it fascinating. From "rustic" to "elegant" - the potter can be a sort of "mild scientist". Son Lyrik (age 12) keeps us young.
