Crafting useful and beautiful ceramics.

I started The Plate Collective 4 years ago shortly after my husband and I moved from Chicago to Milwaukee. The plate Collective is a quarterly dinner we host with four invited chefs that are held at different restaurants around Milwaukee. Each dinner has 24-30 guests.

I collaborate with each chef on a customized plate to be used during dinner, and after the dinner it is taken with the participating chefs to be used the restaurant everyday. I love the challenge of these dinners.

I hope when people enter my shop they feel the whimsy and functionality of my pottery.

    I have been making clay since 1994. I started with one clay class in high school after that I was hooked! I was always excited about customizing a dish or cup and using it after it was fired.

Each of my pieces are handmade by me. I use many different techniques both hand building and wheel thrown pieces. They are all individual so although I try to make them identical they will each be slightly different weather it be in the shape or the glaze.

I ship USPS or UPS. The pieces are insured and if broken in shipment I will remake the piece and resend it at no cost to you. Most of my pieces will be made to order so it take 4-6 weeks for delivery. I have local pickup available also!
