OUR POTTERY


We make wheel thrown, functional and decorative stoneware pottery fired to 2400 F in a high efficiency gas kiln. 

We feel that people who like art on their walls also like beautiful handmade pottery on their table.

We work from our home, our studio and gallery are open 7 days a week (please call 513-702-7995 or 513-673-8292, before you visit.)

Come by and see Mike demonstrating, purchase some pottery and be greeted by our beautiful Black Lab, Ducky.

MY INSPIRATION

Mike was introduced to clay while studying at the University of Cincinnati, it was love at first touch. He attended two sessions at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina where he studied with Byron Temple. Byron suggested Mike try to apprentice with a  studio potter in England. He was accepted into a school in London then apprenticed with potters in Ireland and England. He was privileged to catalogue Bernard Leach's private collection of pottery.

Byron Temple, Bernard Leach, Shoji Hamada and Russell Collins are a huge influence on him.

A great big THANK YOU to Kelby Bowers for the Crown Brewery Bottle that he cast. It perfectly completes the micro-brewery bottle cap collection that we have on our kiln.
