About

Handcrafted. Wood Fired.

Handmade pots offer a connection between maker and user, between two people or many gathered at a table. That connection can be felt in the curve of a cup handle or in the weight of a bowl being passed to another. Wood fired pots tell a story. The story is recorded on each individual piece, in the mark of the flame and deposits of melted wood ash left along rims or infused in glaze and slip. They tell a story of time, tradition, dedicated handwork and collective energy. When these pots are used and appreciated, the story and the connection continues. It is passed on time and again, with each use, each drink and each meal.

Frequently asked questions

Packaging

I take great care in packaging each piece to ensure it arrives safely to your door. Your pottery will be shipped in a clean, heavy duty shipping box. It will come wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap with an outer layer of corrugated cardboard and nestled in packing peanuts, with packing pillows and paper sometimes used as fill.

Sizing details

All items in my shop are ready to ship. The piece you purchase is the piece you will receive. Though measurements are approximate, they are very close to the actual size of the piece, within a quarter of an inch in any direction.

Care instructions

All of my pottery is meant for the enjoyment of food and drink.

My wood kiln is fired to a high temperature of approximately 2400 degrees. This ensures that all clay and glazes have reached their maturity, making the pots durable and water tight.

All of my pots are suitable for daily use. They are microwave and dishwasher safe, though hand washing is recommended.

A note about handmade and wood firing

Each piece in my shop was individually made by hand and fired in my wood burning kiln. Handmade, wood fired pots naturally have variations in form and surface. Most of my pots are made on the wheel and some are hand built. Though some pots are made in series and glazed in a similar way, each piece is truly one-of-a-kind. Firing with wood has many variables that come together differently for each firing. The flame moves naturally around the kiln and deposits wood ash and salt onto the pots, leaving glazes, slips and clay colors with a wide range of tones and textures. All pots in my shop were photographed using natural light to ensure the closest color accuracy.

Returns

Due to the nature of handmade pots and the variations within each wood firing, I can not replace an item with an exact replica if it was damaged in shipping. If I do not have a similar item available, it may take six months to one year for me to make and fire a replacement.
