North Carolina Potter, Vanessa Baughman~
Vessels: Each pottery piece is handcrafted & one of kind. The inspirations come from the many wonders of nature. The fascination & mystery of creating a pot from the basic elements of clay, water & fire bring me much joy. My goal is to create pottery that conveys simplistic beauty, a feeling of balance between delicate & sturdy, decorative & functional. I use techniques of wheel throwing & hand building. The clay is stoneware in colors of browns, white & cream. All glazes are made at our studio. The glazes are lead free & non-toxic. All the pottery is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe (preheat with oven). I hope you enjoy each piece with its unique aesthetics, feel, and function.
Classes: Our studio offers unique classes such as Couple's Pottery, Personal Pottery & Pottery Parties. Yes, you actually make your own pots! Our classes are for those who are wanting to try something new, to get out and have fun, or celebrate an occasion. Classes are for beginner to experienced, ages 3 & up.
Our season for classes is April-October.
The Studio: The studio is nestled between lake, forest & field...Gods beauty surrounds us! We transformed a part of our garage into a quaint & private pottery studio and gallery. If you are in the area and would like to stop by, make an appointment by calling or using the Contact page.
