Beach Inspired Pottery

share moments. share life. share handmade pottery

Inspired by the Lakeshore.  Handmade Pottery.

Bowls, Mugs, Home Decor & Small Sculpture.

We make beautiful ceramics with our hands.

Inspiration from water, sand and wind. 

Small batch pottery inspired by water and sand movement along our Lake Michigan sand dunes. The colors and textures plus tranquility of living life at the Lake.  

Experience the lake effect:  The wind, daily change of our waterfront, breathe in the fresh air and tranquility that envelops you as you walk along our fresh water ocean.  Crashing waves over piers, boardwalks, and even icebergs can be gorgeous. The four seasons fuel our imagination for ceramic surfaces.

“I have always been in love with beaches.”

“I grew up in a Lake Michigan beach town. We spent lots of time in the water, at the beach, and walking in the woods.  Spin forward, I am now raising my family and working. We moved across the country to Vermont.  I needed a way to meet people and took my first clay class.”

“I fell in love with clay.”

Handmade Mugs Make Unique Gifts.

“Working for years honing my craft, one comment has stuck with me.  I was attending a national ceramics conference.  The show was both functional and sculptural ceramics. 

A fellow artist approached me and said that she had been watching me for several minutes.  She asked what kind of pottery I made.  I told her functional – mostly.  I stammered.  Not sure.  The woman said I think you should consider sculpture. It seems that is what you are curious about in this exhibit.  

It took going to Portugal to find my path in clay.”
