The Country's Largest Community of Potters....Carrying on Tradition!

  • “Better Living Through Handmade Pottery...It's More than a job, It's a lifestyle.”
    Pottery in the making is addictive.  Clay has an intoxicating aroma that draws me in.  A visit to the potters studio gives insight into a life style that you can not resist.  Hold that at perfect handmade bowl or mug in your hands, and you will most likely want to take them home.

    As an artist, the simple vase becomes a canvas for my creative vision...as a potter, the functional vessels I make are designed to fit into your life, to be comfortable for everyday use.
