Welcome to riri's pottery haus! :)

I sometimes like to tell my customers at art festivals that everything you see here started as a lump of clay, and then I happened to it (insert winning smile here). More specifically, each piece is wheel thrown and then hand detailed by me, and every design used in my work originated in my sketchbooks. I most emphatically refuse the slightest outside inspiration or influence; a lot of love goes into my work, and from mud to fire, this love is solely and uniquely mine. (It also helps that quite a lot of coffee goes into it too.)

I then like to explain to my customers that I'd never make a piece I couldn't use myself, therefore all of my work is food, dishwasher, microwave and oven safe, and designed with function and comfort of use in mind, primarily. Every spout has a startlingly clean pour, every handle is comfortable in the hand, and every piece is balanced just right. There's that love, again! Passion, even. I am patiently striving for nothing less than perfection, and if each kiln load isn't better than the one that preceded it, I'm unsatisfied.

This is my full time job! I travel around southern New England selling my work at art festivals, and occasionally list some items here in my downtime. Though the only hands to shape my work are my own, I'm assisted by my wonderful fellow who stays up all night with my kiln, moves heavy stuff, and bends wire of his own.
