Welcome to Branded Vessels Pottery



The Pottery & Classes

Each pottery piece is a handcrafted one of kind by North Carolina potter, Vanessa  Baughman. I use techniques of wheel throwing, hand building or both  together. My designs come from the many wonders of nature. The clay I  use is medium to high fire clay's in brown and white colors. All glazes are made at our studio. All the glazes are non-toxic, dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe (preheat with oven) unless labeled  with a (lead-glaze) mark. I hope you enjoy each piece with its unique aesthetics, feel, and function.

My pottery classes in Raleigh are custom tailored for my clients needs. There are many options to choose from and if my hours are not fitting for you please feel free to suggest an option in the contact page or feel free to call with a request. I will try to accommodate you as best as I can.

We transformed our large shed into the pottery studio and gallery, which has always been a dream of mine. We call it the "pottery shed." If you are in the area and would like to stop by, feel free to make an appointment by using the Contact page or feel free to call.

Check out the Charities page for more information on how we give back with every sale.

Our studio is about 1.5 hours Northeast of Seagrove the pottery mecca of North Carolina.
