Announcement   READY TO SHIP!! SHIPS SAME DAY OR NEXT DAY
Moonstar Pottery is a one-person studio (that's me!) selling contemporary pottery for over 20 years.

Everything I make is either thrown on the wheel or hand-built from white stoneware and fired in a gas kiln.

My functional work includes lots of dinnerware, vases, platters, cups and I make all my glazes which are lead-free, microwave, dishwasher safe and intended for everyday use.

The Traditional Wet Shave community are some of my biggest customers. My men's shaving scuttles are a big hit here on Etsy and I love to think of all those guys starting their day off with a Moonstar Pottery scuttle.

My other body of work are wall tile hangings and vases which have a distinctive decoration know as mocha diffusion. This process is done with other clay and colorants while the piece is still wet.
The tile work is all mounted on wood with a waterproof epoxy and ready to hang.

Great customer service and such fast shipping! I got two small jars with cork lids, just like the picture. Both my mom and I love them. Would recommend this shop.

About

Full time Potter from Full time Musician

My formal training and "corporate" background is in music. With a masters in music, flute is my instrument, I became the Music Librarian at the Houston Grand Opera. An exciting and rewarding gig.

I started taking clay classes for fun and just kept getting more and more into it. After many years of study with a studio potter I was ready to start out full time on my own.

My move here to Chicago with my husband and daughter was a good opportunity to set up a studio and devote my days to the clay.
I have never looked back.

    I've been working with clay for over 20 years. I'm lucky to have my studio in my home, so the commute is unbeatable. I love connecting to my customers on a one-to-one basis and helping them find just the right piece for their home.

I try to ship out within 2 days of your order.
