About

Montana Potter

Page Kelly Piccolo is the ceramic artist behind Zephyr Valley Ceramics, a one woman studio located south of Helena, Montana.​
A fifth-generation Montanan, Page was born in Bozeman, Montana and raised in Helena. Spending her young adulthood moving around the US - where she lived in North Carolina, Minnesota, North Dakota and Washington - Page returned to Montana in 2002 and received her degree from Carroll College in 2007.
Page was first exposed to clay early in grade school and then again in the late 1980's during a summer spent as a nanny for a family of production potters. Later, after returning to Montana, Page began taking community classes at the Archie Bray Foundation, and in 2007 started a regular studio practice.


Artist Statement
Botanicals and the texture of fabrics, echoed in my work, are a driving source of inspiration. I am motivated by the visual tension between organic textures and refined imagery or form. I am personally drawn to pieces that engage my senses on multiple levels. My efforts toward the same feeling created in my own work have led me to playing with the surface treatment of the work, making the traditional functional ceramic forms, occasionally layering iron slip through fabric to the leather-hard surface. I continue to pursue the perfect crystal development in my glaze surface, which I require to be fired multiple times as I add my botanical photography in the form of iron decals.
The resulting surface and form work together to engage and invite the viewer to touch and hold the piece. I crave this interaction with the object. I hope to invoke feelings between person and pot of heritage and heirloom, connection and comfort. I invite wonder and joy.
I work primarily in Cone 6 stoneware, and fire in an electric kiln in an oxidation atmosphere.

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond my original delivery estimates. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions.

If within 3 days of delivery, you wish to return the item, please convo me to let me know and return the item and all its original packing material to me. I will refund your purchase price only minus shipping in whichever fashion the payment was made. Exchanges are negotiable.

In the event of a damaged or lost item, the Buyer will receive a refund or replacement item AFTER they provide any and all documentation required by the insurance company. This may require sending a photo of the damaged item and/or signing an affidavit confirming the damage or loss.
