Pottery & Ceramic Art

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Each item in this shop is hand made by Brock, and totally unique. All items are made from stoneware or porcelain clays and thrown on a pottery wheel, unless otherwise specified.

While Brock does work with porcelain, and makes some pieces that could be considered Fine China, he does not currently work with Bone China. Bone China contains a significant amount of ground animal bone. Brock's ceramic art can all be considered vegetarian and vegan. He does occasionally work with real leather to make durable straps, which would be disclosed in an individual listing.

Caring for Your Pottery
This pottery is dishwasher safe, unless the description says otherwise. Like any glass or ceramic item, use of harsh dishwasher detergents can cause etching of the vessel's surface over time. If this is a concern, consider hand washing your handmade item instead.
Ceramic and glass items are very durable unless bumped against hard surfaces. Also please take care if your item is extremely hot or cold, to not touch it to anything of the opposite temperature. Thermal shock can crack any piece. Cushion your item with hot pads or trivets.
Treat it with care and it should last a lifetime!

Everyday art to brighten your routine

Hi, I'm Brock.

I love creating pieces in clay. From the physical exertion of wedging, to the tactile sense of forming items on my pottery wheel, to the adrenaline rush of opening the kiln and seeing whether the chaotic nature of the fire and chemistry has made something beautiful - or simply bizarre - I love it all.

My wife and I sometimes collaborate in the creation process, enjoying the time we can spend together in our home studio.

I hope you find something here that speaks to you, from my hands and through fire.

Thank you for looking.

What is Wheel Throwing?
It is the art of forming pieces while the clay sits on a spinning platform. Each piece made in this way has to be formed by the potter's hands (and tools). This makes the art more labor intensive than molding, which presses clay into a specially made form that can be used repeatedly.

How do I Care for Handmade Pottery?
Your pottery is dishwasher safe, unless the description says otherwise. Like any glass or ceramic item, use of harsh dishwasher detergents can cause etching of the vessel's surface over time. If this is a concern, consider hand washing your handmade item instead.

Ceramic and glass items are very durable unless bumped against hard surfaces.

Also please take care if your item is extremely hot or cold, to not touch it to anything of the opposite temperature. Thermal shock can crack any piece. Cushion your item with hot pads or trivets.

Treat it with care and it should last a lifetime!

  • Brock D.

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    Brock's first experience with clay work came at the age of 11. Although he spent time without access to pottery work, he always had the goal of returning to it. He began consistent clay work in 2012 and is grateful for the opportunity.

  • Jocelyn D.

    Assistant, Photographer, Shipper

    While generally seeing to the paperwork, Jocelyn occasionally works directly with the clay art, especially with decorative elements.

  • Hannah J.

    Creator

    Also a clay artist, Hannah and Brock occasionally collaborate on a single complex piece. We believe that more viewpoints always add value to art, leading to a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
