Shankin Pottery

Good pots are simple and direct and difficult to achieve. Volume, contour, color, texture, energy, line....all come into play in this humble format that gets set in the dishwasher and stacked in the cupboard. For 30 years I have felt deeply at home in this rural landscape, raising my sons, and following my passion for a material I have loved since I was a child. My pots are thrown on a wheel and meant to find their way into kitchens and the everyday rich texture of a life well lived.
