Mare~You outdid yourself on this planter! It is absolutely gorgeous! Perfect size, perfect shape and the glazing and texture on it is divine! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it so much! As with everything that you ship, the packing was incredible and it arrived here in record time. Thanks so much! I am so glad that I was the lucky buyer!

The dragonfly pattern is just delightful, I love it. This bowl, along with my songbird bowl, are my go-to pieces and are always in use. Thank you so much for your artistry and wonderful pieces that never disappoint me. As always, fast shipping and first-rate packing too. You're a treasure, Mary!

I'm finally firing my first bisque load in my new Southern Colorado studio. Hope to have new pots to list in another week or two.


Modern handcrafted stoneware pottery rooted in nature.

My adventures in pottery began in early 2006 in a tiny mountain hamlet in Arizona. Living in the midst of the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the world I was certainly influenced by my surroundings. You will often see natural elements from the forest incorporated into my work. The twig handles on my signature pieces were also a way for me to contribute to our local fire fuels reduction program.

Just Mare Pottery launched in October 2007 on Etsy allowing me to reach an international audience from my little studio in the forest.

We recently relocated to Southern Colorado. I’m excited to see how being in the shadow of Pikes Peak and the surrounding prairie influences my new work.

All of my pottery is hand crafted. Most pots are thrown on the wheel, while some are hand built or a combination of the two. I fire all of my work in an electric kiln twice and sometimes three times to upwards of 2232 degrees F.

Of course I only use non-toxic lead free glazes. My functional ware is also dishwasher and microwave safe with a few noted exceptions.
