 FAQ

  • Do you teach classes?
    • At this time, we do not offer instruction -- there just isn't enough space in the studio currently to teach classes. We are happy to demonstrate our work and answer questions anytime.
  • Is the work dishwasher/microwave safe?
    • Yes, all the pieces are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe. You should treat them like your everyday dishes.
  • Why are your prices so much lower than other ceramic galleries?
    • I price my pots so that you are more likely to use them every day. I also price my work so that it is more economical to purchase multiple pieces in sets. I hope that when people buy a set of bowls or plates they will replace their mass-produced tableware and enjoy the experience of hand-thrown pottery: nothing's better than a bowl of noodles or homemade soup from a unique piece!
  • What is that big wooden thing in the window?
    • That's my treadle wheel -- it's foot-powered, and so doesn't require any electricity. It's built from a design made popular by Bernard Leach (1887-1979), considered the "father of British studio pottery." I love  working the clay at a slower, more controlled rotation.
