Announcement    Welcome! Most of my work is created on the potters wheel. Horsehair Raku is my favorite - Never heard of it? Let me tell you about it. I remove the piece from the kiln while red hot and apply horsehair or other hair. The hair dances on the pot leaving black squiggles that are the carbon markings smoked into the clay body.
You can also find pit fired work, functional stoneware and handmade tiles. I Love working with clay & I hope it shows in my work!
Looking for something special?? Enjoy looking! I may have it. Please follow me on Facebook at Carol Ratliff, or Clay Potential Pottery. Send me a note - Id love to say hello. If you are driving through Oregon on the I-5, please stop in Riddle (exit 103) and check out my Brick and Mortar Shop on Main Street. Dont blink, or you will miss it. If I am closed, give me a call - I may be working in the back. 541-874-3931

About ClayPotential

Sales 60
On Etsy since 2009

ClayPotentialPottery is a collection of Fine Pottery, Ceramic Art, Acrylic Paintings and Sculptures by Carol Ratliff

In 2007, My brick n mortar shop, Clay Potential Pottery, opened right on Main Street in the very rural town of Riddle, Oregon. It has a small gallery area, with a work space and wheels in the front of the shop. Kilns, office and supplies in the back of the shop.

I have began teaching classes for the local high school. The students walk to my shop two days a week and get a chance to learn various methods to work in clay.

Because Riddle is so rural, I needed more sales to continue my shop, so I heard about Etsy as a place to sell handmade items. I am more of an artist than a techy working on the computer, so my shop didn't blossom much. It just sort of sat there and I didn't use it for years. When covid hit the world I had to learn to teach on line, so now I am turning back to my Etsy shop to show my work.

My work is handmade and variations will occur.
