About KestPottery

Sales 320
On Etsy since 2013

Specialty pottery and ceramics with an eye for design!

For nearly 30 years, I've worked as a professional illustrator making work mostly in the children's science book and botanical genres. It's been my main bread and butter. If you're curious, you can go to www.kestfineart.com to learn more about my long career as a working artist.

I began making Monsterpot protoypes in 2016 when a dear friend gifted to me an entire pottery studio. When the covid pandemic began, my client base for my illustration work took a big hit so I turned to making my pottery in earnest to pay my bills. I'm so grateful to everybody who bought my work that year. You really saved me.

Today I'm back to freelancing as much as I was before and I'm still making pottery! Every year I learn new techniques and create new designs but the Monsterpots and eyeball mugs will lovingly remain a Kest Pottery staple.

Thank you always for your enthusiasm and love for my work.

Sending radiant love,
K2

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Do I make custom decorative tiles for interiors?

Yes I certainly can! Please bear in mind that custom orders of this kind require patience on the part of the customer and lots of planning on my end.

To give you some idea: Depending on the size and complexity, it takes about a day to sculpt the design for a tile, then it needs a day or two to dry enough to carve out finer details. The tile must be cast in a plaster mold which then needs a week to cure.

Tiles are pressed out of the molds, which need a week to thoroughly dry, depending on humidity and temperature. The tile is then bisque-fired, glazed, and fired a second time, after which it is ready to be shipped.

Curious? Call me and let's discuss your project.

Custom and personalized orders

Can I make large batches of mugs with a special logo or design for your food establishment?

Yes, indeed! Call me and let's discuss what you have in mind.
