POTTERY

LOCATION:
I

At Pig Pen Pottery, I work in functional stoneware primarily. I believe that a well balanced pot made with its purpose in mind is one of the simple joys of life. My pots are adorned with what I see daily: chickens, herons, owls, goats, pileated woodpeckers,  and recently with something I wish I could see: elephants! On occasion I work in Raku. During Studio Tour, I will be working on the wheel intermittently as time allows. On Saturday I will do raku firings starting about noon and lasting for a few hours. You will be able to see a pot go from bisque to finished in about 45 minutes. On Sunday afternoon, I invite my visitors to try their hand at the wheel.

Throughout the tour I invite you to look around the studio and ask about anything you see; tools, the way I have it organized, glazes, anything!

Pig Pen Pottery has been my studio since 1988. It occupies the basement of Orchard House, my grandparents’ house built in 1939. It has a rustic feel enhanced by a large fireplace. It is a peaceful place just to be.
