About the Pottery

Nearly all of the pots in my Gallery and Shop, are made from native North Carolina clays, and fired for three days in a wood burning kiln. They are minimally glazed, celebrating the beauty of the raw clay, and letting the unpredictable movement of the flames and ash create the unique surfaces. 

All of my pottery is designed for use. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, and contains no toxic ingredients.
