Announcement    I like pottery that is touchable and usable as well as beautiful - and (hopefully!) that is what you will find here! I love rich colors and smooth textures . . . and as you can see, I am inspired by our garden and our Wisconsin night sky.

It's also important to me that our pottery is made responsibly. Several years ago, we began participating in a renewable energy program through our local utility. So now our kiln, studio, and home are all powered by green (wind!) energy. I feel good about how our pottery is being made, and want you to feel good about using it!

Custom orders are very welcome! Feel free to contact me if you have an idea - Thanks, Karen

About onewintrynight

Sales 4,053
On Etsy since 2008

A dreamer . . . .

I've loved pottery since I took my first class in high school. I'm intrigued by everything about it . . . the clay, the wheel, mixing the glazes, the unpredictability of the firing, and to my surprise, even the marketing!

But it's taken me a while! I went on to college and studied business, married a great (& patient!) guy, started a family, and began a career in social work. I've had a couple different jobs and lots of changes through the years, but always there has been my family, and always there has been the clay.

My 'hobby' has grown into a business slowly. First, I bought a used wheel, then I took some community classes, then bought a kiln, then had the great fortune to work with my friend and mentor, potter Eric King.

Finally, on a starry winter night in northern Wisconsin - the kind of night where anything seems possible(!) - I began to think about starting a pottery business. It has taken a few years, but here I am!

Pottery life is a great life! Thanks for shopping and for your interest in me!

Welcome & thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop!

A few notes about my pottery . . .

* Because I make mostly functional pottery, glaze stability and safety is a huge concern for me. I mix all my own glazes, and have decided that some materials I just don't need to work with. For this reason I never use lead, cadmium, barium, manganese, or lithium. Additionally, I have sent all of the glazes you see in my shop for professional leach-testing so that you and I can both be assured of their long-term stability and safety.

* I am also concerned about my impact on the environment! Thanks to a renewable energy program through our local utility (Menasha Utilities), my kiln, studio & home are powered by renewable (wind!) energy. I feel good about how my pottery is made & want you to feel good about using it!

* The packaging your pottery will arrive in has also been given careful consideration regarding it's environmental impact. The boxes are made locally from recycled materials, and are recyclable. The paper stuffing and square rim protectors are upcycled from local manufactured. The paper is recyclable, and I hope you can find use for the squares as well as the bubble wrap. I hope to source recyclable bubble wrap in the near future.
