About

Sharon Greenwood Pottery

I am a studio potter working in Portland, Oregon. Most of my work is thrown on the potters' wheel and then each one is carved by hand. I glaze each piece and fire them in an electric kiln to cone 6.

How it all started:
Back in college, I was studying to become a graphic designer and I had my first taste of clay. It was magical! The way it felt, how it took shape in my hands, even the smell was intoxicating. I took every class I could until I graduated. And then, for the next 15 years, I put clay away to focus on my advertising career.

In 2010, I was feeling completely burned out so I took a 2 month sabbatical and enrolled in a local wheel throwing class. Again, it was magical! I decided when the class ended that I would "retire"; I quit my job and turned my garage into a fully functioning studio. For several years, I continued to take classes and experimented with different techniques to see what it was I really enjoyed doing.

Turns out, I love to carve; it brings me great joy and peace of mind. Hopefully my work will bring you joy and peace as well!
