"I particularly enjoy making functional work because these pieces are meant to be handled and interacted with - having the potential to become an intimate part of someone’s day to day life. It is my belief that a well-made cup or bowl can transform something as seemingly mundane as a simple meal or coffee break into something more ritual and meaningful." - Hunter Smith
Our local artist in residence, Hunter Smith, mindfully hand crafts all of the one of a kind pottery displayed throughout our studio. He creates a wide range of functional ware as well as decorative art from a variety of clay bodies. We're particularly fond of some of his porcelain pieces.... Hunter creates art on a continual basis, and our photo gallery is often unable to keep up, so drop by the studio to see what's new on display, and give him a follow on Instagram @huntersmithpottery.
Pottery can sometimes be purchased as a set for a discounted price or as individual pieces- woohoo! AND every once in a while, Hunter drops a few deeply discounted pieces into the seconds basket! Stop by our studio location at 300 Greensboro St. to view Hunter's work, interact with it, and speak with our office coordinator about how to take home the pieces that most speak to you.
