This mug is perfect! Just as nice as pictured, the flashing is nice and the handle is well-constructed. I love me some well-constructed handle. Thanks for creating art that I can put coffee in!

About

Evan and Grace make woodfired pottery that brings warmth and beauty to your life.

We are husband and wife potters who work collaboratively.

The story of us: A few years ago we bought a 160 year old crumbling hillside farm in Vermont. Right away we started a never ending process of repairing and winterizing our farmhouse, building up garden beds and planting fruit trees, and turning a barn that had once housed chickens into a studio. Up went a kiln shed from trees harvested by Grace's uncle and milled with a chainsaw by Evan that has now housed two different wood kilns. Midway through this time period a kid was born.

The story of our pots: Grace does most of the throwing, concentrating on traditional functional forms with clean simple lines, sometimes adding lovely sculptural elements. Evan takes over and adds surface decoration in the form of free flowing designs in wiped wet slip or brushwork with wax and pigments on the raw clay. Flashing slips and rich glazes formulated by Evan augment the decoration. Grace loads the kiln while Evan decorates and then we fire together, stoking the kiln with wood for a day before resting a few. When we finally get to unload we can't wait to see what comes out. The controlled chaos inherent in wood firing always gives us many pleasant surprises.

The story of you, our customer: We makes these pots for ourselves because we love the results. But they are really for you. After a firing we look at the pots, and take the time to get a feel for them and take some pictures. And we do keep a few, but eventually they go out into the world through a gallery, home sale, or at a market. We love the thought of our pots being part of other people's lives, being used and bringing liveliness and warmth to their new home.
Enjoy!
