This beautiful comfortable to hold Mug holds 18oz. Wheel Thrown by me (ShawnaPiercePottery) using a mixed dark clay and glazed in 'Dark Cloud' a glaze combination of blue and green.


Pottery has become my passion

People often ask me - "What do you do"?
I always have a hard time answering the question...I don't work... I don't go to a job...I don't get an hourly wage or yearly salary... I'm a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful active kids, 2 dogs and have been married to my husband for 10 years. Once the kids are off to school I hang out in the garage - my studio. My garage/studio is where I get dirty when I drop a pound or two of clay on Brent, my pottery wheel, transforming it from a ball into a manipulated form that will be trimmed, fired in the kiln, glazed, and fired again. Christmas Day comes often to my world. I anxiously wait hours before I can open the kiln lid to see what treasures await me. Some days are not great days, when the glaze drips onto the kiln shelf, but other days I experience the most amazing high when I see what has transformed.

Creating with my hands, a treasure that can be used and will last a lifetime, is what I do!

All of my pieces are hand made in my studio in Chestermere, Alberta Canada. The majority of my pieces are thrown on the wheel while some are constructed by hand. Pieces are bisque fired to 1800+ degrees, glazed, then fired again to 2200+degrees. All pieces are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe - although you may want to take special care with some more delicate items by hand washing them instead.
When using your piece in the oven, do not place it in a pre-heated oven as this could cause the glaze to crack. Slow warming and cooling of the piece is recommended.
All pieces will hold water as they are naturally porous so you will need to allow sufficient time for the piece to air dry before putting it away.

Made to Order items will ship within 3-6 weeks.
