functional pots and beyond…
We have been making and selling pottery at our studio and gallery for over 40 years. There are always new things to see and everything is hand-made and one-of-a-kind.
In our gallery, you will find the largest and most diverse selection of Fireborn pottery anywhere, plus work from other artists, including glass, jewelry, pottery, and prints. You will also find our larger scale work, experimental work, and sale items.
Pottery is a sensual, as well as visual experience. Come to our gallery and hold a mug, feel the balance of a pitcher, the texture or smoothness of surface. It will help you choose and appreciate our products.
And while you are here, take a studio tour. We hope you enjoy using your pottery as much as we enjoy making it.

On Fireborn Pottery
Making pots involves many steps but our favorite and most creative part is forming new pieces from the soft clay. Most of our work is thrown on a potter’s wheel. Sometimes we alter thrown pieces to create more organic forms. Sometimes we use slabs and other hand-building techniques. Sometimes we design in a sketch book, but usually we sketch directly in clay. As we work we visualize the final product, including its form, color and function.
