Announcement   Welcome to my shop! This is where I sell top notch crockery for your home and kitchen needs. I make eclectic functional pots on the potters wheel, but love to jazz them up by adding decorative touches such as funky handles on vases, or by altering shapes to out of round. The pots end up pretty loose in character and my glazes accentuate the spontaneous nature of the way I work. No two pots are the same because making them different keeps me interested in the process.

I am a firm believer in the handmade ethic, and after 3 years of pottery graduate school and 12 years as a professional potter I am convinced that a well crafted artistically designed piece of pottery can add immeasurable value to how we live our lives. I hope you agree!

I have known Carter for over 10 years. While his style has evolved I can honestly say you can still feel the love and spirit Carter puts into each one of his pots every time you pick them up. Thank you Carter for the beauty you share.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my shop! I want you to enjoy your purchases fully and this means that I will try to keep the buying process as easy and hassle free as possible. A fun fine quality pot shouldn't be difficult to get your hands on, after all!

The pots I have listed are often a selection from a series of similar pots that I have been working on. If you are interested in something that has already sold there is a good chance that I will still have others like it. Convo me with your interests and what in particular you liked about the item and I will see what I can come up with. If I have a good match I will put it in a reserve listing with your name on it!

A brief word about COLORS----- If having a pot with an exact shade of color is important, please be aware that images vary from computer to computer and that you should contact me for any additional details I can share with you. I make every effort to present accurate images and descriptions of the work, but cameras, lighting, and computer monitors don't always represent them with 100% accuracy. Most of my glazes are intense and dramatic, especially viewed close up, but viewing them in person is sometimes different from how they look on a computer.

My aim is to make your experience buying my pots as worry free as possible. Convo me for any concerns what so ever and I will do my best to set your mind at ease. Thanks for your interest!
