    I love everything about this tumbler! The bottom texture is wonderful, the top is extra smooth, it's a terrific size, and it just feels so good in your hands. Shipped quickly and came very well packaged. This was my second style of tumbler from here, and it probably won't be my last, they're such a great size and shape.

    Really gorgeous liner glaze and exterior surface design. Nice big size and form make this piece super functional. Great gifts, if you can bare to part with them!

    This little vase makes quite a big impact! I purchased a matching lidded box and absolutely love them both. I love the serene colors and the simplicity of the single flower. I have purchased five pieces from Wendy so far and am enjoying them all immensely. Her customer service is great as well. It probably won't be the last time I purchase from her!

    Yet another beautiful piece from Wendy! This is the fifth piece that I've ordered from her. There is always so much attention to detail and the colors are soft and lovely. She even included a small funnel for filling the cruet. As always, it was shipped and received quickly and was well packed. It's clear that she values her customers as she goes above and beyond.

    The online picture doesn't do this vase justice as the subtle change in coloration is so beautiful. I love Wendy's work! I have purchased 5 pieces from her in less than 2 weeks and they are all superb. I highly recommend her. She ships very quickly and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is packed well also.

    This dish is pure artistry! It is so unique and the detail is absolutely exquisite! The way Wendy makes the patterns on the plate itself is such a creative idea. The items arrived very quickly and were carefully packed as well. You can't go wrong with anything you would purchase from this shop! I highly recommend!

My Story

Creating a home - shaping a piece of clay - constructing a life - with each process there is the opportunity to infuse the intentions of calm, connection, and clarity. The clear purpose of a bowl - the proxy for hands cupped together holding, carrying, containing that which will nourish our bodies and our minds. My mind and hands shape each piece with those intentions and as the pots move out into the world, my touch is extended to the person who takes that piece into their own home to use. From my story to their story, a story continued. The development, creation, and sale of my pots is my play, my extroversion expressed, my desire to please others, my path to understanding many things. I am currently living in Floyd, Virginia working as a studio potter. My pottery is made of porcelain clay and is fired in an electric kiln to cone 10. All pots are safe for microwave, dishwasher and oven.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 20, 2020
I use handmade pottery daily and feel a connection to those that produced the piece and a deeper connection to the community around me. A hope of mine is that my work will elicit a similar response in others. I wish to make functional pots for daily use that are well made, beautiful, and create a meaningful moment of connection for the user. My pots are food-safe and can be used in the dishwasher, microwave and pre-heated with the oven.
