Functional Ware

Whether created by hand building or throwing on the potter’s wheel as the name implies, something that is functional is meant to be used.

Much thought is put into each piece, to embrace both form and function, in the hope that the user will connect with the ware beyond its intended purpose.

Travel Mugs

Travel Mugs

These stoneware mugs are great for travelling!  They look good, feel good in your hands and are so sippable!  A rustic cork completes the look.  Dishwasher safe and, if you need to reheat, microwave safe too!

Scribbleware Mug

Scribbleware Mug

Our Scribbleware line of pottery is so much fun!  The black glaze is specially made to be used like a chalkboard.  You can write a note with a piece of chalk and wipe it off with soap and water!  This pottery is not coated with a chalkboard paint, it is glazed with a durable, dishwasher safe pottery glaze that has been fired in the kiln to 2228 degrees!

Storm Jars

Storm Jars

When the lights go out, grab your storm jar!  Inside each jar you’ll find two emergency candles and a pack of matches.  Place a candle in the lid and light it until the power comes back on.  Each storm jar glazed with our “foggy” glaze color.

Flowers in the Snow

Flowers in the Snow

This vase is made in black clay with the shellac technique.  The shellac is painted on a pot that is bone dry, then the clay surrounding the design is wiped away.  The shellac design resists being wiped away and leaves a raised design.  The glaze breaks over the raised edges of the design leaving a beautiful 3-D finish.

Honey Bee Pot

Honey Bee Pot

This vase is made in black stoneware clay using the shellac technique.  When the pot is bone dry, shellac is applied in an intricate design.  The clay is then wiped away with a damp sponge leaving the areas with shellac raised.  The honey nutmeg glaze breaks over the raised design enhancing it beautifully.

Earth Tone Berry Bowl

Earth Tone Berry Bowl

Use this cute bowl to  rinse berries, then put the bowl right in the refrigerator to keep them nice and cool.  The matching saucer will catch the drips.  It can also be used to drain small amounts of pasta.  Food and dishwasher safe.
