BlackTree Studio Pottery


Hand-built stoneware and porcelain: art, beauty and comfort for your daily life. Our pottery feels good.

What do you make?

Steve and Louise hand-build one-of-a-kind, organic, functional objects using stoneware and porcelain clays. While Steve glazes sparingly, leaving his objects' exteriors unglazed to show the clay's natural textures and colors, Louise incorporates leaves, twigs, fall nuts, and spring blossoms slathered with clay into her vases. The black walnut, beech, and maple forests outside their rural studio inspire the works of both potters.
