Announcement   I love making functional pottery that brings something special to daily routines. All of my pieces are either thrown on the wheel or hand built by me in my studio. I use stoneware or porcelain clay and everything is fired in my electric kiln to either a cone 5 or cone 6, which makes it durable.

I use commercial, non-toxic & food safe glazes, which means that I don't mix the glazes from raw chemicals. It's a fascinating & important process, but I just don't have the proper space to do it in at the moment. Maybe one day!

Other than that, I do it all myself so if you're looking for a custom made piece, please keep that in mind as it takes between 4 - 6 weeks for me to typically complete custom work. I do keep in touch and let my customers know what stage their pieces is at along the way.

I hope you find something you like and thanks for visiting!

This soap dish is just perfect. It's large enough to hold my oversized handmade soap bars, it allows the soap to be above water, and it's adorable! Thank you!

About

My Havenly Corner

Literally located in a corner of our finished basement which also functions as the gym (i.e. treadmill) and laundry center, my home-based work space is not quite big enough to be a studio, but it's where the world disappears for the hours while I'm there.

Thanks to a Christmas gift by family a few years ago of a kiln, I was able to set up a studio at home. Since then I have been working on honing my throwing & hand-building skills and my knowledge of glazes and the whole magic that is ceramics.

I learned how to do the basics in 1994 as the studio tech at my college. Since then I've always sought out studios to work in wherever I was, including teaching at an art school in southern China where I was able to use their campus studio for free, but had to pay for my pieces after they were fired.

I try to fit in as much time as possible each week. That could be 10 hours, or 25. It's not always easy, but I always feel better after I've made the world go away even for a little while!

    I was introduced to pottery by accident, which is one of the reasons I decided to name my shop "Kismet Pottery". Although it wasn't something I could plan, it's turned out to be a constant source of inspiration and rejuvenation.
