Handmade pottery

Hi and welcome to my shop! All the pottery and art you find here is handmade by me in my home studio in Washington State.

In 2005 I graduated with a degree in art from the University of California, Santa Barbara. After years of doing other things I felt the ceramics arts pulling me back in so I joined a community studio and began throwing pots again. Recently I built a studio and set up my own kiln and now I make my pottery from home with 100% renewable energy!

My work is inspired by the things that filled my childhood, plants and animals, fairytales, and art. When I’m not making pottery you can find me hiking in the mountains or knitting at my local brewpub.

    Owner, Maker

    I've been making art and crafts for pretty much my whole life. I love knitting, drawing, and printmaking but I've always had a deep love for ceramics. I started getting serious about pottery in 2012 and I've been throwing and carving ever since.

Payment methods: I accept both Paypal and major credit cards through Etsy's Direct Checkout.

Cancellation: Orders may be cancelled up until I have shipped them out. After I have shipped them, you may return the items for a full refund, however you will be responsible for all shipping costs.


I ship through the US Post Office. All domestic packages will come with a delivery confirmation number whenever possible. Domestic orders over $50 will come with USPS insurance, whenever possible. Domestic orders $250 and over will require a signature upon delivery.

Shipping prices are an estimate. I will issue a refund for any overcharges in excess of $2.00.

I take great care packing my pottery for shipping. Each piece is individually wrapped in bubble wrap and placed into a cardboard box. That box goes into a larger box with any other items (similarly boxed) that have been purchased at the same time. I put padding between all the inner boxes to keep things from shifting in transit. Since this process uses a lot of materials, I try to reuse packing whenever appropriate.
