Both Pam and I were fortunate to have graduated from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Pam has a BA in Ceramics and a BEd in Art Education, while I received a BA in Ceramics from Ohio Northern University and an MFA in Ceramics from NSCAD). While at NSCAD, in addition to gaining the obvious technical knowledge required to become potters, we gained perspective, seeing and studying pottery across cultures, from Neolithic times to the present. We have been shaped by early English slipware and the tradition of the commemorative plate, and by the strong forms and pattern of Eastern ceramics. “How To Wrap 5 Eggs: Traditional Japanese Packaging” was a major influence in my appreciation of form and function. The Arts and Crafts movement, and its idea that function does not preclude beauty, has also deeply informed our work.

In this age of “instant everything”, we see more and more people connecting with hand-made, well-crafted, considered pieces that embody the integrity of their maker. For over four decades, we have strived to make pieces that you never tire of—ones that can be a functional and beautiful part of your daily routine for years to come.
