About VangstadPottery

Sales 237
On Etsy since 2015

I love making pottery!

This shop was formed as a result of a need to progress my career as a potter, as well as to free up some space in my apartment. I've been throwing pots for a number of years now and have built up quite the collection of wares that just sit around in boxes and crates. I would love to share my creations with the world almost as much as I would like to pay my rent on time every month, and I believe that this shop can help me achieve both of those goals.

All of the clays and glazes I use are designed to be sturdy and non-toxic. Everything I make is food, dishwasher, microwave, and even oven safe (as long as the dish is preheated with your oven). I hope you enjoy my work!

    Hey, I'm the guy making all of these pots. I first got involved with pottery and art in general while studying for my degree in social studies education. Now I both teach and throw pots!

    Annie, my lovely wife, is the best business partner I've ever had the pleasure of working alongside! She is a talented photographer and all of the photos you see on this site are thanks to her.

Hello, I hope you enjoy my pots! Everything I create is meant to be used in some function, and due to this, I try my best to only produce works that will last a lifetime. All of the clays and glazes I use are food safe, sturdy, and hopefully pleasing on both the eyes and hands. All of my pots are also dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe (please allow the piece to preheat with the oven).
