About

Tamarack Stoneware opened in July 2012.

After many years of creating pottery in my spare time, I "retired" and opened Tamarack Stoneware. My studio is a wonderful place with comfortable work space and plenty of storage where I joyfully spend hours working with clay. What's more, I can hear the birds and our dogs and see deer, turkeys, and our garden as I work.

My work is mostly wheel thrown and sometimes it's thrown on the wheel and then altered by hand. I especially like textured surfaces and create them by impressing designs using all sorts of found objects or by carving designs. To create some of the textures I use clay stamps that I have made over the years. On some of my pieces, I mold figures and then attach them to the surface of the clay to create designs.

It's important to me that my work be attractive while also being well-designed for use. I pay attention to how spouts work, handles provide grip, and lids fit. I like to make pieces that "speak", that have a personality, and ones that bring a smile or even a chuckle. I also enjoy making pottery with a nature theme, letting the beauty that surrounds me flow back into my work.

My customers are important to me so I work hard to please them and to provide good service. My reviews reflect the good customer service and quick shipping that I provide.

There are a number of social and environmental issues that are important to me and that influence my work processes. I reclaim and reuse my clay scraps and work to minimize impacts of waste glaze. The environment around the studio is wonderfully pristine and that's the way I want to keep it.

I also have a shop with mostly vintage items from my own home: www.etsy.com/shop/RaccoonCreekResale.
