Sunrise Pottery Studio strives to foster imagination and creativity in our studio by helping students create beautiful art. Whether you’re coming in to spend the day or to truly explore your talent, you’ll find a blank canvas awaiting you where the world is open to your imagination. I opened the door the summer of 2017.
I taught art at the elementary level for 32 years. 
I enjoy continuing learning new techniques while making functional pottery. I would love to share my knowledge and studio with others interested in this art material.




At Sunrise Pottery Studio, we understand the importance of support in an artist’s life. Artists who visit our ceramics studio by being in a special place where their creative ideas can flow freely. We’re dedicated to our artists, and we provide them with the appropriate help and tools they need to succeed. It’s our mission to ensure that the arts remain strong, and to offer classes to students of all levels - introducing newcomers to art and creativity, and refining the techniques of even the most veteran

Shipping and Policy


o Pottery pieces are one of kind and will not be repeated, however you can contact me to request a variation on the theme if the piece you are interested in is no longer available.

o Each pottery piece is made by hand and is therefore unique and may include slight variations in glaze finish or other surface embellishment.    Style availability for pottery pieces is on a first-come, first served basis and there is no guarantee your favorite style will be repeated. Please contact me if you would like me to make an item that is no longer available.

o All functional pottery that has been designed for a food-related purpose is food safe and can be washed in the dishwasher. Having said that, hand-washing your hand made pottery will reduce any likelihood of damage.

o I am not responsible for damage or loss due to dropping or otherwise mistreating of any pottery pieces. In general, care should be taken to not shock your pottery piece with dramatic temperature changes – going from freezer to oven, putting directly on a fire or stove-top element, pouring in boiling water, etc. – as this can result in your piece cracking.  Sadly this disclosure is here due to experience. Don’t be that person!

o The volume of a mug or tumbler is measured full to the rim for easy comparison. If you are looking for a specific capacity, I suggest filling a similar mug to the rim and measuring its volume and base your choice upon that.

o Every effort is made to accurately represent colors in each listing; however, actual color may vary slightly on your screen due to technology settings.

o We’re all human, after all: If errors in pricing are shown in the shop, I reserve the right not to sell at the listed price.  You will be notified if such a discrepancy is an issue.

· Shipping

I have had incidents where a package went to an old address on file and was returned to me.  If this does happen the customer will be responsible for any additional shipping to get the package to its correct address.

o Gifts: If your purchase is a gift that you would like shipped directly to its recipient, please let me know so that I can remove the prices from the packing slip. I am happy to gift wrap as well for a small charge – assessed by the size of the item. Use the contact me form to request this.
