Handmade ceramics inspired by nature

Hello, I’m a potter and ceramicist in Harrisonburg, VA, and I’m glad you found me!

My pottery is inspired by a lot of things, often plants and flowers I find in my yard or around town. I like to play with texture and glazes that flow and move in organic ways. For me, pottery is a way to give up a bit of control in my life, and I see it as a collaboration between myself and the unseen, and often unpredictable, forces of nature that take place in the kiln.

I work with mid-range stoneware, and a combination of commercial and homemade food-safe glazes. I like to work slowly, mostly handbuilding with slabs and coils.

Thank you for supporting me, and I hope you enjoy my work!

Frequently asked questions
How does local pickup work?

I offer free pickup at the lovely The Lady Jane shop in downtown Harrisonburg, VA. Use the coupon code LOCAL at checkout to waive your shipping fees. If you forget, just send me a message and I'll refund your shipping.

When your order is ready to pick up, you'll get a shipping notification from Etsy. If you would like contactless pickup, call The Lady Jane at (540) 421 - 3252 on the day you plan to stop by, and they will set your order on the table outside their front door. For the Lady Jane's hours and contact information, visit their website: https://www.theladyjaneva.com/

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom and personalized orders. Please send me a message or an email (ros.obrien.ceramics@gmail.com) and we can talk!

Care instructions

I recommend handwashing and microwaving for short periods of time (e.g. 30 seconds) to prolong the life of these pieces.

Note that some specific pieces are not microwave- or dishwasher-safe, and that will be noted in their descriptions. This applies to pieces with gold plating or wire decoration, and I generally only use these with decorative items that aren't meant to hold food or drink.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If you select the "gift wrap" option at check out, I will wrap your gift in kraft tissue, and tie it with white and gold string.

Wholesale availability

I do not sell wholesale at this time.
