Leaves, flowers, trees, and animals find their way into the wheel thrown shapes made by Anne on the potter’s wheel. H.J.’s creations are hand-built, usually starting as a flat piece of clay from the slab roller. Sometimes their work is collaborative. The pieces are mostly functional. All are food safe and can be used in oven, microwave, or dishwasher. The glazes are all lead free and non-toxic. Many of the pieces have recipe ideas and/or accessories for use attached. Anne and H.J. are especially pleased when they learn that someone uses their work in their homes as a part of their daily lives. The Browns like to travel the country and visit other potteries and studios for new ideas to try. It’s still great fun to make the traditional and functional shapes, but the quest for new concepts keeps things growing and changing.
