About RasmussenPottery

On Etsy since 2008
Video summary: Everything we create in our studio is a reflection of what we see in nature and our surroundings. This little video shows some techniques we use and also a glimpse into our world.

K & Kerri Rasmussen, Full-time Artists/Potters since 1986

We opened our Etsy shop quite awhile ago(2008)thinking it would be easy to run an online business and selling retail at outdoor venues and keeping up with wholesale orders. We were wrong! So unfortunately we didn't do much with Etsy until this year. When the pandemic hit all the art festivals we were scheduled to participate in cancelled as well as our wholesale orders to retail gift shops in several National Parks in the western U.S. Now we are working like crazy to keep our Etsy store stocked. There is a great variety of handmade decorative and functional pottery.

As a husband and wife team we have enjoyed making a living creating beautiful art! Our studio is located in Hyrum, Utah, nestled in the beautiful Cache Valley in Northern Utah. We have raised 5 children while being self-employed artists and now have 11 grandchildren. In a normal year we travel throughout the western states during the year participating in art festivals where we enjoy meeting people and telling them about our work.

One of the things we love to do is incorporate nature into our pieces; namely actual leaf imprints or using repetitive carving and designs to imitate nature. Our pottery is functional and can be used in the dishwasher, oven and microwave. Carving and bold glaze colors are used to enhance the contrast between glazed and unglazed clay.

Our pottery is carried in several gift shops including but not limited to Grand Teton National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and Red Rock Elements Gift Shop outside of Las Vegas, NV.

    Owner, Creator

    I have loved art and nature from a young age. While in college studying architecture I needed an elective and chose a pottery class. There was no turning back and I switched my major to Ceramics. I have a Masters of Fine Art Degree from USU.

    Assistant, Co-creator, Manager

    We met in art class nearly 40 years ago. After college we decided to go full-time and travel to sell pottery. K L needed help and I felt qualified and excited to be his assistant. Along the way I developed my own line of work.
