They both share a passion for working with their hands and for making pottery that is not only well-crafted and a pleasure to use, but also beautiful. Each handcrafted piece of pottery provides the canvas for their unique glazes, designs and carvings. 

The gallery is filled with functional tableware in their signature “tree of life” and “dragonfly” glaze designs, as well as elegant sculptures and hand-carved wall art. Barry and Susan combine the clay with their imagination to create truly one-of-a-kind pottery that reflects their joy in creating art.
