Functional Heirlooms

Primary Medium: Clay
Other Mediums: None

I make pottery to brighten your day and elevate the moment.

My functional ware is often brushed with a whitewash style finish and a clear glossy food safe glaze, or clean white glaze. For me keeping a simple color palate is important because it complements your food or drink, which encourages you to slow down and truly enjoy your experience. These pots are fired to 2012 degrees f (^1 in ceramic speak). This is lower than the traditional temperature which allows me to fire in an electric kiln that uses less energy, while still resulting in very sturdy, functional pottery.

The “Wrought Clay” series is inspired by my love of ornamental wrought iron and are designed to be simply beautiful. They are unglazed, black clay, fired to ^4.

I enjoy collaborating with others to create custom pots, if you’ve got ideas, let’s talk! Studio Number: 394
