HANDMADE POTTERY
JOHN POWELL ~ CAROL TOMLINSON

Our pottery is handmade using traditional folk craft techniques. Designs are incised, painted with underglaze colors, glazed and fired in our handbuilt kiln. Our pottery is created with non-toxic materials and can be safely used in a dishwasher or microwave. Although stoneware is very durable we do not recommend it for oven use. We hope that the informal charm of this pottery will bring joy to your daily life!

~ ABOUT US ~
We met in the art department of Monterey Peninsula College. Carol was working with jewelry and weaving and painting as well as ceramics. John made pottery in high school and was returning to school after several years. Carol's pottery was mainly functional, decorated with patterns and animals from folk art influences. John was learning handbuilding and wheel throwing and was interested in glaze development. We both worked for several semesters  in the ceramics department as lab assistants. Soon we were looking for a place to set up our own pottery. We found an old farm near one of our favorite hiking areas, built a kiln, and started working together. What has evolved is a style of pottery unique to us that is strongly influenced by traditional arts from around the world.
