Little Garden Pottery
Creating Beauty Through Earth
Little Garden Pottery produces simple, rustic, and colorful pottery for the home and garden. The pieces are handmade with love in my home studio that is surrounded by a small country garden. The well thought out line of products include traditional pieces such as mugs, planters, vases, as well as some more unique forms.
I started working with clay in high school, but did not pursue it as a career. Instead I got my degree in Biology, and worked at a variety of places trying to find the right fit. I got involved with the organic and sustainable food movement, working for and managing some start-up businesses including local food cooperatives and a small organic farm. My entrepreneurial spirit grew, and I decided that what I wanted more than anything was to combine two passions of mine, both of which involved transforming the earth. So I set upon starting a business creating and designing a beautiful line of pottery, as well as growing a little cut flower garden.
Each unique pottery piece has gone through a long and thoughtful process. It is hand thrown on my pottery wheel, trimmed, fired in the kiln twice, and decorated with a variety of clays and glazes. I am very peaceful and content while creating these, and I hope a little bit of that joy is carried along with them wherever they go.
