A potter’s journey into this quintessential craft heritage.
I make historically inspired pottery based on European and North American traditions of the 17th to 19th centuries. Among the several styles I interpret are earth-toned traditional Colonial Era “Redware,” and blue and white “Delftware” from England and Holland. Here can be found a unique glimpse into the foundations of this traditional craft expression.
You can purchase this hand made, food safe, visually authentic pottery at a store near you, at a show I’ll be attending, or by ordering on-line.
A bridge between worlds.
I hope you find these wares to be living reminders of a world we inherited, as we attempt to shape a world we will pass along.
