Announcement    I craft handmade ceramics in contemporary colors for all home and office decors. All the pottery here is handmade by me in the Oregon studio that I share with other potters - either wheel thrown or hand built from slabs and coils.

I offer coupons and discounts from time to time through my newsletter every six weeks or so. If you'd like to get on the mailing list, please contact me with your email address and I'll add it! Please know that I don't accept multiple coupon codes and discounts are not available for items that are already marked on sale or for made to order/personalized items.

All items except Made to Order ones generally ship within 1-3 business days of your order. I fire my dinnerware, vases, bakeware, etc to Cone 10 (2300 degrees F), making it very durable for everyday use, including in the oven, dishwasher and microwave.

I'm always adding new pieces to this collection of handmade pottery so be sure to check back often.

Also, if you like watercolor paintings, I have a shop on Etsy where you can see original paintings and fine art prints that I've created: BlueSkyFineArt.etsy.com

Here are a few of the comments made by people who've purchased my pottery:

"I am so overwhelmed and happy with my three beautiful purchases from this fantastic artist! Everything arrived packaged with such care and detail, assuring all pieces were in perfect condition. Deb is wonderful with communication too, and thoughtfully included a lovely gift when I mentioned we had just moved into a new home. Such detail in the craftsmanship, do not hesitate to purchase, these are pieces to be handed down to children and grandchildren for sure! Thank you so much Deb!"

"I have no words! This piece is the cats pj's, the cream of the crop, the one and only, top notch and really freakin awesome too! Thank you Deb for your talent, professionalism and kindness."

I bought this Pho bowl for my husband and it far exceeded our expectations. It is absolutely beautiful and shipped in record time with tracking. The seller was great to work with and wrote a personalized message to me. We will certainly be buying more things from this seller!

"Holy cats I absolutely love the bowl (and spoon and chop sticks) I ordered! It was a Father's Day gift, but after opening up the box I almost didn't want to give it up! The pics don't do it justice either, the colors in person are absolutely gorgeous. I will likely buy more items from this shop in the future!"

"Looks great on my kitchen island! I don’t want to put it away because it is so lovely to look at. Beautifully designed and made."

"Stunning piece! So much detail and colors are perfect. I will cherish it always."

"As usual, Deb shipped my item right away! And as usual, it's beautiful and perfect! My little sugar pot and spoon is on display on my counter and I just love it! My husband says he's worried I have an addiction to buying Deb's pottery! And it's true...."

"Fun, unique piece! Packaged carefully and quickly shipped. Thank you for including business cards and artist info which is appreciated for gift giving. "

"Over the moon to have this fun bowl on our breakfast table. Such a happy piece. Love it! Arrived VERY WELL PACKED. Great service and convos. Thanks. "

"Deb sent these items beautifully packed and they arrived on time with no damage. Deb was a joy to deal with during the ordering process. The mugs and matching saucers are an absolute joy with gorgeous colours and a very artistic decoration."

"My favorite mug ever. So cute and beautifully made. I will have this one for a long time!"

Love this shop! Artist is super responsive and ships her wares quickly and packaged very well for transit. But the best part is how cheerful each piece I've bought here is. You can't help but have a better day when you're making her pottery a part of it. Highly recommend!

Pottery with soul

Handmade pottery differs from mass-produced pottery in similar ways that a home-cooked meal differs from a frozen entree out of the grocery store freezer.

It is lovingly made in a manner that takes more time, has ingredients in it that the creator has chosen with care, and offers qualities that could never be achieved with something mass-produced. Sometimes it doesn't look as polished or perfect as a manufactured item, but it certainly has soul, and the imperfections give the pieces a certain charm and character.

Most handmade pottery is one-of-a-kind since each piece is made individually, one at a time. It has an inviting feel to it that makes you want to touch it, hold it, and enjoy using it.

Because it was lovingly made by an individual, it has a positive energy that flows through to the person who chooses it for themselves or another.

It also offers qualities that manufactured pottery cannot hope to achieve, such as being created for a very limited use purpose or being personalized with a name, message or a particular size, shape, color, texture or design.

Handmade pottery is generally more ecologically friendly than wares that come from far away places, most often overseas, and the individual craftsperson is generally more likely to recycle and reuse materials in the creation of handmade pottery. No waste going to landfills; no chemicals and toxic materials being released into the environment.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop and learning more about handmade pottery.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

If I feel I can make something custom for you in a style, design and glaze that I have tested and perfected, I'm happy to consider custom and personalized orders. Please know that there is generally an added charge for this and it may take six weeks or more to complete.

Sizing details

Because all of my pottery is made one at a time, there will be variations in size, even when you purchase a set of two or more pieces. Generally these are maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch in difference and a couple ounces in volume at times.

Care instructions

I use a very durable stoneware clay for my pottery, making it able to withstand continued, everyday use. Unless stated otherwise in the description, you can use my pottery in your oven, microwave and dishwasher.

Gift wrapping and packaging

It is very difficult to gift wrap your pottery since I need to make sure it has lots of bubblewrap and peanuts surrounding it so it arrives intact. However, I am very happy to tie a ribbon around the packing material and to include a hand written card with a message from you inside the box. Just leave me the wording in your Note to Seller at check out.

Wholesale availability

I do sell my work wholesale to gift shops and galleries. Please contact me for minimum order and pricing information. My phone is: 970-846-9349 and my email is deb@blueskypottery.com

I also have a watercolor shop here on etsy and would love to be represented by a gallery for that work. You can see it at: BlueSkyFineArt.etsy.com
