Hand Thrown Pottery

One of my favorite mediums, is pottery. I'm attracted to the earthiness of it I guess. I like the utilitarian vessels as much as the complicated sculptures that some artists produce.

As we build our momentum at we are working to provide our customers of the world the very best work from the very best artists. One of the more popular search strings we see come up again and again, is hand thrown and hand built pottery. That's one of the reasons we are so very pleased to announce the addition of artist Allan Buitekant.

This extraordinary potter hails from Union Mills, North Carolina where he has resided for the last four years atop Pinnacle Mountain. Buitekant studied at Greenwich House Pottery, Parsons School of Design, Brooklyn Museum Art School and the 92nd St. Y, all in New York. Not only will I add some of his pieces to my personal collection, but I will be gifting them to some of the many lucky brides I am acquainted with.

Check our collection out here. --Ruth Mitchell
